Why travel Kathmandu?

For some, venturing off a plane into Kathmandu is a pupil-dilating experience, a rush of sights, sounds, and notices that can rapidly prompt tactile over-burden. Whether you're barrelling through the activity stuck rear ways of the old town in a rickshaw, wondering about the medieval sanctuaries or evading trekking visits in the explorer region of Thamel, Kathmandu can be an inebriating, stunning and debilitating spot.

This unendingly intriguing, once in a while the maddening city has enough sights to keep you occupied for a week, yet make sure to leave its explorer comforts and investigate the 'genuine Nepal' before your time runs out.
