The R&K Guide To Kathmandu

The pot at the end of the rainbow for 18th-century hill kings, flower children, and Maoist rebels alike, the Kathmandu Valley retains a fascination for travelers dreaming of the East as well as Nepalis seeking the West. The city is a still-untidy mashup of three city-states from the golden age of Newar civilization. But for every chaotic intersection or slick shopping mall, there are a dozen moss-lined courtyards and shrines to explore. Modern Kathmandu turns out bibimbap and baba ganoush with as much panache as it does momo and curries, but the allure of the valley of temples is unchanged. Let us guide you there.
