As soon as you step off the plane, it's obvious that the city of Kathmandu in Nepal really is a world away from anywhere else you've visited. Stunning highlights like the Hanuman Dhoka palace, the Kathesimbhu Stupa and the idyllic Garden of Dreams are connected by a warren-like network of streets both old and new.

Kathmandu is one of those mystical places that draw travellers from across the globe to admire its unique sights and sounds...


In fact, the wider Kathmandu Valley houses seven UNESCO World Heritage sites, as well as being able to claim the enviable title of “gateway to the Himalayas”. This prime location has made the city as much of a Mecca for mountain-climbing and trekking as it has been for sacred Buddhist landmarks like the magnificent Boudhanath Stupa, the largest in the valley region.

Cheap flights to Kathmandu will also allow you to see the famous residents who lend the Swayambhunath Stupa or “Monkey Temple” its nickname. Once you've exhausted the main tourist areas of Thamel and the hubbub around Durbar Square, climb the 213 steps at the Bhimsen Tower for sweeping views over the hidden marketplaces, courtyards and artisan crafts of the Old Town.

Further afield, it's worth venturing out to some of the other medieval citadels in the country such as Patan for its incredible carvings and architecture and a staggering 1,200 monuments to Buddhist and Hindu culture. Former capital Bhaktapur impresses with its fine pottery traditions and the beautiful Golden Gate and Palace of 55 Windows which line the central square. 

It's always a good idea to seek Foreign Office advice online before you travel to unfamiliar territory. The inherent strangeness of Kathmandu is a big part of its appeal however and once you immerse yourself in the land of temples, mountains and ancient history, you may be reluctant to leave.
