Nowhere in the world is there a more fascinating city than Kathmandu, capital of the unique and magical mountain kingdom of Nepal – ancient shrines, Hindu temples, Buddhist Stupas, sacred sites, remarkable stone sculptures, richly decorated wooden pagodas, exotic festivals, and some of the most colourful and friendly people on earth. Remember that Kathmandu, with the rest of Nepal, was effectively closed to the outside world before 1951, and to this day it is as though time has stood still.
