Traveling to Kathmandu
As one of those exotic names we have all heard and few have actually visited, I had no idea what to expect when I flew into Kathmandu. Its a large international city with challenging traffic and friendly people. The history and sightseeing is plentiful with Buddhist and Hindu temples, shopping bazaars, and trekking into the Himalayas. In some ways it is an ancient city with timeless festivals and in others its as modern as a jet flight around the world's tallest mountain.
Insider Tip:The visa process was very confusing at the airport with no one speaking English but with English signs instructing visitors. You need a passport photo for the visa and they have a photo booth for that then get in the correct line for the length of stay you are planning on.
