The capital of Nepal, Kathmandu, is the largest city of the country, featuring unique and interesting architectural marvels and temples. The highlight of your trip here should be The Monkey Temple, Baudhanath Stupa, the Durbar Square, Patan, and Thamel districts to name a few.

Its a small country, getaway to nature and if u want to move from a crowd noisy cities. Nepal is the country for u to spend your money. It is a different feeling when you get there but sometimes different feels beautiful. Becareful of pollution as the country is developing country.
