FAQs

The incidence of attacks on tourists is very low in Kathmandu. Basically, yes Kathmandu is safe to visit for all international travelers and Solo trekkers.

Is Kathmandu in India or Nepal?

Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal, a small landlocked country situated next to India. Since India is a huge country and it surrounds Nepal in three different sites i.e. South, East, and West, people assume that Kathmandu lies in India. However, to be true, Kathmandu lies in Nepal.

Can you see Mt. Everest from Kathmandu?

Kathmandu lies about 300kms away from Mt Everest, which is the tallest peak in the world. So, it’s not very close to each other. On a clear day, you might be able to witness the distant view of Mount Everest from Views points along with Kathmandu such as Nagarkot and Dhulikhel. But, it’s about chance and you can only get them in the morning. You can take Everest Short Trek to witness the majestic Everest from close. 

Is Kathmandu Worth Visiting?

Yes, Kathmandu and its beautiful architecture are worth visiting. Kathmandu might not be the cleanest and most peaceful city for a longer stay, but it’s great for a few days of sightseeing tour. Further, there are many great sightseeing destinations around the city such as Nagarkot, Sundarijal, Helmabu, etc that will take you to the proximity of Mother Nature.

Which is the Best Month to Visit Kathmandu? 

 

kathmandu valley tour is perfect in every season. Winter in Kathmandu is still very warm and pleasing. The temperature in the daytime is about 10 degrees Celsius and you can roam freely. Also, you might get to celebrate the Nepalese New Year (We already live in the late 2070s). Spring (March, May, and April) is very welcoming. With festivals like Holi and Shivaratri, everything about spring is fun. Autumn and Spring are also great times for treks in Nepal as the Everest Base Camp trek

Then we have summer when the temperature doesn’t cross 30 degrees Celsius. As long as there’s no rain, nothing is going to stop you from having a great time. And even if it’s rainy, all you need is a raincoat- the Kathmandu tour will still be prodigious in the monsoon. Lastly, we have Autumn when Kathmandu valley appears at its best. The views of the Mountains are clear from Swayambhunath and the entire city is vibrant with festivals such as Dashain and Tihar. 

So, the biggest question is “When will you be free?”. Just let us know when you plan to take this Kathmandu Tour and the MyEverestTrip will do the arrangements. 

 

Festivals of Kathmandu

The major festivals in Kathmandu are the Jatra celebrated by the Newari people. Ghode (horse) Jatra, Indra-Jatra, Gai Jatra, Bhote Jatra, and Bisket Jatra followed by a huge feast keep the city very vibrant. Similarly, people celebrate Dashain and Tihar in October and November. Pashupatinath temple is the center for the celebration of Teej and Shivaratri. Bouddhanath and Swayambhunath are especially crowded during Buddha Jayanti. Other festivals of the capital are Loshar, Holi, and Chaat, all celebrated by people of different ethnic groups.

All these festivals are celebrated on different dates as per the lunar calendar. Thus, if you plan to join the lives of people with one of these festivals on the Kathmandu tour, you must plan your trip accordingly. However, just a day of the visit is not enough to understand the culture and traditions of all people residing in the capital. 

Accommodation and Food in Kathmandu

kathmandu valley tour will be pretty luxurious. As you arrive, you shall drive to a 3-star hotel in Kathmandu. The rooms with private baths and hot showers are available on sharing basis for two.
