The best places for tours & travels in Kathmandu.

#1: THE GARDEN OF DREAMS

The hustle and bustle of Kathmandu will get you down, so we recommend stepping into the tranquil neo-classical oasis, Garden of Dreams. Located just outside of Thamel, the Garden of Dreams is filled with pavilions, verandahs, fountains and a relaxing amphitheatre where you can chill out on one of the pillows provided.

There’s also the Kaiser restaurant which does a damn fine hamburger if you’re craving a western delicacy!

Best Time to Travel:
The best thing about the Kathmandu Tour is that you can take it any time of the season. Monsoon is from June to August with 80 percent of the rainfall only during this period. Spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are the most pleasant seasons. Winters begin in December and last till February.

What to Eat in Kathmandu?
Many say Kathmandu has the most varied cuisine available in Asia. While you’re in Nepal, be sure to sample some local fare. We recommend you try daal (lentil soup), with bhat (rice), or a vegetable curry. Another staple is a Momo, which is a Tibetan style dumpling that uses Nepali spices.

WHERE TO STAY in Kathmandu
Kathmandu has a huge range of accommodation options to meet any budget. Most properties are located centrally, primarily around the Thamel district. Prices vary dramatically, depending on where you stay and when. The most common form of accommodation – guesthouses, will set charge between $5 – $60 per night and if you would like to stay in Luxury accommodation then will set charge between $200 – $360. If you’re travelling outside of high season, prices can drop, so always ask if any discount is applicable.

On the whole, accommodation in Nepal is pretty standard. Most places have a range of rooms, from budget to doubles with en suite. Beware, that cheaper accommodation is of a poor standard; if you’re backpacking, this might be okay, but otherwise, invest a few extra dollars for something nicer.
