If you’re coming to Nepal you’re pretty much guaranteed to pass through Kathmandu at the beginning and end of your trip. It’s a busy, dusty city, but also has some great food and a lot of character. I prepared for the worst as people told me it would be full of traffic, tons of people, and lots of touts trying to sell things, but it wasn’t actually as bad as I had imagined. For someone who’s never been to India, Vietnam or someone else that’s insane, Kathmandu will be a huge stock, but for me it was far less than imagined. People will still ask you to buy things, but luckily most touts won’t constantly hassle you, and will just ask once and usually leave you alone after that. The Kathmandu Airport (KTM – Tribhuvan International Airport) is just 20 minutes away from the city and a $5 cab ride.
The main area you’ll stay in is called Thamel and is where all of the backpackers and trekkers stay as it’s central, cheap, and has great restaurants. I stayed at Kathmandu Village House which is connected to Ande’s house. It’s hard to initially find as it’s down an alley, but it’s a great location and has really comfortable rooms. I stayed in both the private rooms as well as the dorms and they were both great and really well priced at around $8 for dorms and $13-$20 for private rooms. If you want a more social hostel, you’ll want to stay at Fireflies Hostel which is on the same street as Zostel and Wander Thirst Hostel but has the best common area I saw. The best cheap Indian food is at a place called Western Tandoori and is a must visit. Thakali Bhanchha Ghar is a local Nepalaise restaurant and had the best Dahl Bat I’ve had anywhere in Nepal in my six weeks there, and it’s refillable for free too. OR2K has decent food and is double the price local places, but is a nice place to sit around and read a book for hours. My favorite cafe to work from and have coffee was Pumpernickel Bakery, they had decent wifi, a few power plugs and was very relaxed about letting you stay there for hours at a time.
For sightseeing, Kathmandu Durbar Square is an easy walk so you might as well go, but it’s not really worth the $10 entrance. The money supposedly goes to rebuilding however and looks like it’s desperately needed. The one must see temple is Swayambhunath Stupa also known as Monkey Temple. It’s a bit of walk out of town so I opted for a 300 rupee ($3) taxi ride, which turned into a $5 round trip as the driver agreed to wait for me. 30 minutes was more than enough time to see the stupa, walk to the top, take photos and see the entire place. Don’t miss it.
