While visiting Nepal, you’re likely to be making a stopover in Kathmandu. Nepal’s capital features sacred religious sites, stunning valleys and rivers, and of course the Himalayas range. Kathmandu itself is a flurry of activities as locals go about their daily lives as tourists jostle for the best photographs of the iconic temples and stupas even as cows cross the road to hold up traffic. The outskirts of Kathmandu and the regions beyond are the polar opposite. These places are cocooned in some of the most beautiful natural sceneries you’ll ever see. Here, all your everyday worries and stress will give way to a sense of wonder. Before leaving, don’t forget to visit the shopping districts to buy souvenirs. The list below features some of the top Airbnbs in Kathmandu, Nepal.
This cozy, well lit private room is perfect for a pair of travelers visiting Kathmandu. From the cheerful apricot walls to the tidy twin beds and comforting cotton quilts, you’ll feel at ease and right at home. As a safety precaution, your host has also installed earthquake alarms. Apart from the spacious room, you’ll also have access to the shared kitchen, breezy rooftop garden, and a toilet with hot water supply. Your hosts stay in the same building and are more than happy to introduce you to their culture, including sharing with you their authentic Nepali homemade dishes.
