Kathmandu is the capital and largest city of Nepal. This city of 3.2 million people is located in the Kathmandu Valley in central Nepal, near the Vishnumati River. Kathmandu is believed to have been built by king Gun Kamdev in 723. According to legend, the area was once a lake. Still, Manjushri, a follower of Shakyamuni Buddha's teachings, split a hill in the South to make it easier for water to flow and make the area suitable for habitation. This old city is famous for its large number of Buddhist and Hindu temples and palaces, most of which were built in the 17th century. The earthquake destroyed many of these buildings. In this valley, there are seven UNESCO World Heritage. Kathmandu has been a popular destination for Western tourists since the 1960s when it was the main hippie trail stop.
The peak and busiest times of Kathmandu are in April followed by May and June. Hotel prices, as well as flight tickets, will be higher than any other months. However, you can still get great deals if you book a flight or accommodation ticket earlier. The lesser month with travellers is in October.
