Moves to calm the city’s infamous traffic, smog and noise have made Kathmandu more liveable than it has been in decades. There’s even reliable electricity and Wi-Fi as bonus creature comforts in the atmospheric and maze-like alleyways of the old city. – Lonely Planet

Experience the blend of Religions and cultures: Both Buddhists and Hindus own the valley with their own version of the origin story. It is not strange to see a Hindu visiting Buddhist Monasteries and Shrines, and vice-versa. Hindus worship the Buddhist deity as their own and the Buddhists do the same. There are also a significant amount of Islam and Christian Believers and the presence of mosques and churches if you know where to look.

Many Buddhists in Nepal consider the Hindu trinity of Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu to be earthly incarnations of the Buddha: and Hindus believe Gautama Buddha is the incarnation of their deity Vishnu.

 

Accessibility: Nagarkot, a quiet hill providing incredible hiking, cycling and the spectacular view of mountains and sunrise, is just an hour drive from Kathmandu. A 4-hour bus ride will take you to the world’s second-highest natural bungee-jumping spot.
