Kathmandu, the city of temples, as well as the capital of Nepal, where the dusty road is its part, will give you a big surprise of your life, and it has more, such as the features of the most developed city of Nepal, as well as alleys, narrow lanes, and road pit holes, including unseen events, which you have not seen in your country, last but not the least, the breaking of the traffic rules by the people, which might become a thing of interest to you, and which you probably want to capture in your camera, above all, this biggest city of Nepal has its own story – the present story, the past story, and the unheard story. Some of the stories that you hear mingle gods and goddesses with human-beings. To the tourists, Kathmandu is wild because people are crossing the streets from everywhere, but what you see in Kathmandu is pretty entertaining. 

Kathmandu itself is one of the prominent valleys of Asia, which has impressive temples, including busy trading areas and of course, palaces, courtyards, and ponds. Most of the time, Kathmandu has perfect weather, and its area called Thamel has a unique atmosphere for the tourists in terms of restaurants, bars, hotels, and food. Sometimes, these tourists might call the human activities that they see in Kathmandu or in other parts of Nepal as crazy, but that is how Kathmandu goes, and that is also the reason why Kathmandu tour becomes a memorable tour for you. As a tourist, you will always be satisfied with the heritages of Kathmandu, and all these heritages are UNESCO WORLD HERITAGES.

According to the geographers and myth, Kathmandu was a lake, but what the myth says is there were lotuses floating in this lake, and Boodhsattiva Manjushree saw a flame coming out of lotus that seemed to be planted on a hill. He wanted to have a closer look, so with a strike from his sword of wisdom, he cut a gorge, and the water from this lake drained out to form what is known today as Kathmandu.
