Kathmandu Valley

The Kathmandu Valley has seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites and lies at the crossroads of Asia's ancient civilizations. It has several sites that are places of pilgrimage for both Hindus and Buddhists and is home to Nepal's capital Kathmandu.

Explore the bustling city of Kathmandu, or go further out and hike through the jungles and hills throughout the valley. Whatever you do, don’t forget to sample a momo, a type of Nepalese dumpling - you won't regret it!
