Nepal is a beautiful country with stunning landscapes, old age culture, and epic trekking trails good for the adventure travelers. Sad to say, we didn’t do the trail, we had limited days to spend, and for we know, hiking needs more preparation, both physically and emotionally.
Since we landed first in Kathmandu, we tour around to see the majestic temples and palaces, the old-world streets and the crumbling structures. A city that never hides the flaws, but never failed to show the beauty and charm.
So here are the top sights.
- Durbar (Palace) Square
2. Swayambhunath (Temple Monkeys)
This is also a home to hundreds of monkeys considered holy to Tibetan Buddhists and Hindus.
3. Boudhanath Stupa
Street life in Kathmandu
Our favorite, Momos!, a bite-size dumplings with a meat or vegetable filling, wrapped in a dough accompanied by spicy dipping sauce. It’s a simple but delicious meal in Nepal.
We enjoyed staying in Kathmandu for days. Our next trip will be in Phokara, known as a gateway to the Annapurna Circuit, a popular trail in the Himalayas, there we mostly have a good time.
