What to wear in Kathmandu depends on what attractions you wish to see, what activities you wish to experience and during what season you are visiting. The capital city of mystical Nepal has plenty to offer its visitors, which is why this is a leading tourist attraction in Asia.
Kathmandu is the center of Nepal tourism, economy and urban living. It is the largest and busiest city with about one million inhabitants. It is not uncommon to see Western and Asian tourists walking around and bathing in the city’s mystic charm and religiosity. The city is the urban center of bowl-shaped Kathmandu Valley in the Himalayas. It is home to a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, most prominent of which is the Kathmandu Durbar Square, which is a complex that contains ancient temples, palaces, structures and streets. It is located at the heart of Thamel, the tourism center of the capital city. Kathmandu is bordered by its two sister cities, Patan (Lalitpur) and Bhaktapur, while Nepal is locked between India and China. The country is serviced by major airlines from Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Travelers coming from the United States and Australia typically pass by London, Bangkok, Hong Kong or Singapore.
