For most visitors to Nepal, the Kathmandu Valley is the arrival point and the focus of the visit. The valley is the historical center of Nepal, palaces and temples were built and rebuilt and Nepali art and culture were developed and refined. Rivers and streams interlace the landscape, with brick-red villages clinging to ridges to preserve precious land. Even from the bustling centers of the cities, it is possible to catch a glimpse of the snow-capped peaks of the majestic Himalayas against the intense blue skies.
Kathmandu offers activities such as visiting numerous Stupas, temples, National Parks, white-water rafting and mountain flights, bungee-jumping and white water rafting.
