    Have a good view of Kathmandu from the rooftop. Since Kathmandu does not have many tall buildings, you can go up to the rooftop level of your hotel to have a good view of the city and surrounding hills. The best time is in the early morning during and after sunrise.

    Shops along the streets of Kathmandu, Nepal

    There are plenty of local handicrafts and other interesting stuff to buy along the streets of Kathmandu, and they are at a very cheap price too. Of course you need to bargain to get the price even lower :)

    Temples in Patan

    A bell

    When you have been in Kathmandu and Bhaktapur and you want to see more temples you can go to Patan.

    Interesting in Patan are, of course, the many temples. Round the Durbar Square you can find a lot of temples and they are built close to each other.

    Bhaktapur

    If impressed with Kathmandu then take a taxi or local bus to neighbouring villages. They are equally fascinating and beautiful.

    Kathmandu Valley

    From the temple of Swayambunath on a hill near Kathmandu you have a wonderful view of Kathmandu Valley. And maybe one of the snowcapped mountains over there is Mt. Everest.
