There are only a handful of places on earth where a visitor can experience the beautiful and magical combination of nature and culture similar to what is found in the Kathmandu Valley. Once you decide to come to Nepal, most visitors will find that the Kathmandu Valley is their first destination in Nepal. Among the verdant rolling hills, and deep river valleys this unique place contains a myriad of temples and monasteries. These unique sites house as many Hindu gods and idols and Buddhist monasteries and stupas as there are people. At an altitude of 1336 m above sea level, the valley covers an area of 218 sq. miles. There are four major cities which house these great historic, artistic, and cultural interests. They are the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu, Patan, Bhaktapur, and Kirtipur. Nestled among green terraced hills and meandering river valleys, these cities are scattered throughout the Kathmandu Valley.
