Information about Kathmandu

Kathmandu is not only the capital of Nepal but also its central spire of culture, heritage, art, economy, and tourism. Because of its charming appeal and also because Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport, Nepal tourism has become possible and convenient for the travelers from around the world. Do not get fooled by the contemporary urban fabric of the city. If you consult a Kathmandu travel guide before coming, you can see there have been excavations to prove that Kathmandu has stood since the first century AD. Moreover, within the main city, there are seven UNESCO World Heritage sites that include both Hindu and Buddhist heritage sites.

Here are a few pieces of Kathmandu tourist information to help out the travelers:

Weather in Kathmandu:

Kathmandu weather is subtropical in nature. Except for a few stray occasions, over the years, the city has experienced soothing, pleasant summers and winters. It does not get too hot in the summers. The average temperature is around 28-30°C. It is quite mild compared to what the Indian plains just south of Nepal experiences. The winters are cold, with average temperature hovering around 10°C. But it does not go below the freezing point usually. An important Kathmandu travel tip would be to travel between the summers and winters – that is autumn and spring, from March to early May and from September to November.

Nightlife in Kathmandu:

Nightlife in Kathmandu is a happening and sizzling one. Bars and clubs are at large in the Thamel District. A marketplace by the day, the place comes alive with its multiple options for night-time festivities as the sun goes down. One can find all varieties of clubs, restaurants and bars here – Irish pubs, Mayan-themed bars, New Orleans style jazz and blues. Rum Doodle is a must-visit among the lot, because of its history. This is where every Mount Everest climber comes to celebrate their feat. Ason Bazar is a good night-time market to shop from. Another part of Kathmandu nightlife is the casinos –Casino Royale, Casino Everest, and Casino Mahjong are three of the best. Carry a Kathmandu map with you to find the best places.

Food in Kathmandu:

Nepalese food is strongly influenced by the Indian and Tibetan cuisines, but it has its own flavors as well. Dal Chawal is the most common food consumed here, says any Kathmandu tour guide. In the restaurants, one can get it in platter style that comes with salads, papad and vegetable curries or meat dishes. The Newars have their own cuisine and Chatamari, which looks like pizza, is a popular food. Popular Tibetan food Thupka is famous here, and so are masu dishes, which are basically spicy curries, made of chicken, lamb or pork.

Shopping in Kathmandu:

Thamel is the best place to buy cheap products on the Kathmandu guide map. Casual garments, local artifacts, trinkets and souvenirs, bags, watches, accessories, and even trekking gears are found here. Among special items, there are Pashmina shawls, Nepalese dagger or kukris, thangkas, Tibetan curios and silver wares are common. For more posh experiences, one can go for Civil Mall or King’s Road with all the top-notch international brands. The Civil Mall has a multiplex and bowling alley as well. Bhatbhateni Super Market is another place, which is the literal definition of all-things-under-one-roof.

Festivals in Kathmandu:

Kathmandu, in general, celebrates all the Hindu and Buddhist holidays and festivals. Lhosar or Buddhist New Year, Buddha Jayanti, Holi, Dashain or Dussehra, and Tihar or Diwali are the most celebrated ones. Ghode Yatra is a festival unique to the valley, marked by various horse parades, functions, and acrobats performed by Nepalese army. To find out more information about Kathmandu festivals, you have to follow their yearly scheduled by the government.

    Himankkansal

    Delhi

    Himankkansal's 5 days trip to kathmandu

    I had a very good experience with the travel agency in Nepal i.e. Himalayan Adventures. Their cab and driver were very good. Value for money trip but a bad experience with Travel triangle agent in India. There was a moment when I thought of not continuing with Travel triangle but went ahead only bec
    ause of the local travel agency in Nepal. I will suggest to directly contact Himalayan Adventure and you will not be disappointed.

    Isha Oberoi

    New delhi

    Isha's 5 days trip to kathmandu

    Everything chosen by us was up to the mark. The only hotel you did was for Pokhara and turned to be a nightmare for us. The rooms were separated. The condition of the room was not good at all. It was so noisy, the washrooms were smelly. Being the 31st night, we had no option left. You need to improv
    e that. Thankfully we had changed the hotels before. Rest everything was well managed. Thanks to the cab services offered who was very friendly and cooperative.

    Dr Prachi

    Mumbai

    Dr's 7 days trip to kathmandu

    Amazing co-ordination, follow up by and hospitality by Sabbu from Royal luxury. She has ensured we get all Customised the way we wanted. She has been amazing overall and we will definitely refer more to her or plan another trip in another few years to other unexplored parts of the country. Himalayan
    front hotel view from the room was just so mesmerising. The weather was very nice and just right as we wanted. Fewa lake was another beautiful experience with the boatman singing us a Nepali song on the love for the Lake.
