Best day trip from Kath­mandu?

Crave - - TRAVEL -

The Shiva­puri hike, in the Shiva­puri Na­gar­jun Na­tional Park, is a nice one-day trek in the for­est, where there’s lots of flora and fauna. If the weather is nice, it’s the great­est feel­ing.

Best view­point to see the city?

For the best close-up views of Kath­mandu, go to Swayamb­hu­nath Stupa, also known as Mon­key Tem­ple, which sits atop a hill.

Most un­der­rated place?

Sankhu Vil­lage, a his­toric red-brick Ne­war vil­lage north­east of Kath­mandu.

The best sou­venir of Kath­mandu?

Thanka paint­ings, singing bowls and tra­di­tional wood and metal carv­ings.

One per­fect day in Kath­mandu?

One day is not enough for Kath­mandu. Spend the morn­ing in the pil­grim­age site of Boud­hanath, fol­lowed by break­fast. In the af­ter­noon, take a hike with a packed lunch for four to five hours, or a trip to Bhak­ta­pur Dur­bar Square, and in the evening, ex­plore Thamel and have din­ner.
