“Find peace and prayers on the little hillock of Swaymbhunath in the northwest of the Kathmandu Valley. Also known as the "Monkey Temple" among visitors from abroad, Swayambhunath sits atop its hill, overlooking most parts of the valley. This is a good place to catch panoramic views of the city. The site itself has stood as a hallmark of faith and harmony for centuries. The glory of Kathmandu Valley is said to have started from this point. ”

“A buzzing, visitor-friendly area, Thamel is the city’s main nightlife zone. Bars blast out live music by cover bands, and lively eateries serve Nepalese and international dishes. Designed in 1920, the stately Garden of Dreams is dotted with pavilions, fountains, and urns. Markets and stores sell metal handicrafts, colorful jewelry, and trekking gear, while pedestrianized Mandala Street has upmarket shops and spas.”

“Built in the 5th century and later renovated by Malla kings, the site itself is said to have existed from the beginning of the millennium when a Shiva lingam was discovered here. Pashupatinath Temple is one of the 8 UNESCO Cultural Heritage Sites of the Kathmandu Valley. It is also a cremation site where the last rites of Hindus are performed. The site and events at cremation is not for the faint hearted; still visitors are seen watching curiously from across the river from the hill. Visit Pashupatinath Temple for an out-of-this-world experience. ”

“It is really worth visiting. The architecture of the royal palace, the garden and the exhibitions (a collection of religious art and displays of Newari architecture) are amazing. Don’t forget to stop for /coffee or lunch at the museum’s restaurant (the beautiful garden in the 3rd courtyard of the museum). Your ticket also allows you the access to “Sundari Chowk and Mul chowk” (other entrance on Durbar Square - right side of the museum) ”

“Boudhanath (Nepali: बौद्ध स्तुपा, also called the Khāsa Chaitya, Nepal Bhasa Khāsti, Prachalit Nepal alphabet , Standard Tibetan Jarung Khashor, Wylie: bya rung kha shor) is a stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal.[2] Located about 11 km (6.8 mi) from the center and northeastern outskirts of Kathmandu, the stupa's massive mandala makes it one of the largest spherical stupas in Nepal. The Buddhist stupa of Boudha Stupa dominates the skyline; it is one of the largest unique structure's stupas in the world. The influx of large populations of refugees from Tibet has seen the construction of over 50 gompas (Tibetan convent) around Boudha. As of 1979, Boudha Stupa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Along with Swayambhu, it is one of the most popular tourist sites in the Kathmandu area. The Stupa is on the ancient trade route from Tibet which enters the Kathmandu Valley by the village of Sankhu in the northeast corner, passes by Boudha Stupa to the ancient and smaller stupa of Chā-bahī named Charumati Stupa (often called "Little Boudhanath"). It then turns directly south, heading over the Bagmati River to Lalitpur – thus bypassing the main city of Kathmandu (which was a later foundation).[2] Tibetan merchants have rested and offered prayers here for many centuries. When refugees entered Nepal from Tibet in the 1950s, many decided to live around Boudhanath. The Stupa is said to entomb the remains of Kassapa Buddha.”

“If you are around the Sanepa/Jhamsikhel area, go to Café Soma for breakfast or lunch. Good burgers and sandwiches, soups, salads, Panini, fresh juice, original teas, homemade cakes etc... Soma is also a good spot to work on the computer as it provides customers with a reliable wifi connection. Closes at 7pm.”

“Honacha is the real Bara place! It’s been favored by the locals for 50 years and as such delivers proper Newari Food: "bara and egg barra" (lentils crepes), "alu" (potatoes), "kerao" (chickpeas), “ sekuwa” (cured meat)... Watch out, there’s no menu so just order a mix: ‘’Ali ali sabaï dinus”! Drink home-made Chang or Rakshi to go with (local rice alcohol) The place is located just behind Krishna Temple on Durbar Square . It’s a dark ground floor- part of the experience- or a small terrace on the 1st floor with a view on Durbar Square – Opened only during day time.”
