Kathmandu has often been claimed by many as an impeccable amalgamated cynosure of natural and cultural beauty. No other places in the world have such amalgamation of art and culture, and tradition that you come across in the Kathmandu valley lying at an altitude of 1300 meters. Kathmandu is the crossroads for many ethnic groups of Nepal and for visitors from all over the world every year. Nestled in the lap of the central hills of Nepal, Kathmandu is a city of the medieval and the modern cultures. The Kathmandu valley sprawls at the junction of two sacred rivers, the Bagmati and the Bishnumati. Across the Bagmati river to the south is Patan, an ancient city of temples, while Bhaktapur (Bhadgaun) with its thousands of indigenous homes and temple shrines lie only six miles to the east. More than two hundred years ago these three cities housed the Royal places of three different kingdoms that divided the valley palaces which are preserved and protected by the Government of Nepal.
They say there are more temples than houses in Kathmandu valley. Great temples with heavily curved exteriors, massive white-domed Buddhist stupas and hundreds of smaller Buddhist chaityas, small temples with low, ornate archways-and tiny temples containing once lone idol all are an integral pieces of the unique mosaic that is Kathmandu city. To really discover the Kathmandu valley you need to begin exploring from well beyond the city limits, and travel in from the outside of Nepal in order to touch its roots. Fortunately there are many very beautiful walks within the Kathmandu valley that combine cultural experience and natural heritage.
