It costs 1000 rupees to enter the Durbar Sq complex and I am in two minds whether it is worth it or not. It is a chaotic area with lots to see but very hard to make any sense of. There are numerous temples and...More

When i visited it was packed with worshipers. Located in the heart of durbar square . Busy area and if you need to venarate,vendors at your hand. You could buy flowers insence and all you need in one place.
A lot of history, art and culture to see in this place. In Nepal, religion brings people together across boundaries such as Hinduism and Buddhism. Many Hindu and Buddhist temples sit cheek-to-jowl here. In India, Hindu temples are usually built in the Sikhara style, while...More

We did Pashupatinath first thing in the morning, then travelled out to Bakhtapur over lunchtime, coming back to Budhanath in the afternoon. You can cover Pashupatinath in about an hour but will need much longer for Budhanath. I'd also suggest a guide here as it's vast but very interesting. There's a good lunch spot right in the middle but try to get a table on the balcony upstairs. Budhanath takes around a couple of hours to appreciate properly. Next day we did Durbar Square in the morning, then Swayamvbhunath (allow a couple of hours) followed by Pathan city. Each day we had a guide with a private car which was really worth it if you can afford it, as not only will you get taken to out of the way places of interest but you're not wasting time finding taxis. Also, being English, we needed the background detail!
We stayed in Thamel which seemed safe, if a bit chaotic. In fact, although we were travelling as a couple, I'd imagine the whole of Kathmandu is safe as we only ever encountered really nice people in the whole of Nepal.
Hope this is helpful and have a wonderful trip.
