Kathmandu is an intricate maze of narrow streets, great for exploring and observing the traditional culture and Nepalese way of life. There’s a fascinating diversity of things to see here, including the Durbar Squares of Kathmandu and Patan, the medieval town of Bhaktapur, the Hindu temple at Pashupatinath and the Buddhist stupa at Bodnath.
Hindus and Buddhists live side by side here, along ancients trade routes in a valley of extraordinary beauty. There are many excellent restaurants in Kathmandu, serving a wide range of cuisines including traditional Nepalese; and the local markets are worth spending some time browsing, too.
Dwarika's Hotel in Kathmandu is a stunning example of meticulous preservation of local architecture and is a fantastic opportunity to stay in a luxurious heritage property in the heart of Kathmandu, and is simply a Scott Dunn's favourite.
The Inn Patan
The Inn Patan is a beautifully restored traditional boutique hotel located close to Patan Durbar Square in Kathmandu, Nepal. With just 10 rooms, the Inn Patan provides a fantastic bolt-hole from which to explore this secret corner of Kathmandu.
