There’s just something about Kathmandu.

From the moment we stepped off the plane on our first visit to Nepal, we really enjoyed our time in this bustling city.

It’s surprising, because we’re not usually fans of heavily polluted cities, nor ones that are claustrophobic, chaotic and exhausting. Despite the constant grumbles from motorbikes, annoying touts pushing trekking tours and hashish, and the painfully bad infrastructure, Kathmandu is endlessly appealing.

The rabbit-warren streets of the backpacker district of Thamel are intoxicating, as are the surrounding alleyways which head seemingly in all directions, only to end in the same place. Despite the 2015 earthquake, Kathmandu’s cultural and artistic history is prevalent just about everywhere, as are its historic temples and royal palaces, all waiting to be explored.

And the food… don’t get us started on the food, so delicious, so cheap.

But what made the city just the little bit better were the people. Each person we met was so friendly and accommodating, despite the constant hardships of recent years.

The city can be an overwhelming city to navigate and explore, and one day is certainly not enough to see all of Kathmandu’s top things to do; after three long visits here we are still discovering new parts of the city. If you’re planning to visit Nepal but spend minimal time in Kathmandu, we suggest you change your plans and add at least two days to your stay in the city. It’s worth it.

You won’t be short of things to, and that’s why we’ve put together our favourite places to visit in Kathmandu.
