Kathmandu is the ancient royal city and capital of Nepal. The city is situated in the Kathmandu valley and its many palaces, temples and monasteries mirror the centuries-old traditions and history of the Nepalese kingdom and its people. The Old Town is alive with people, carts, bicycles, rickshaws and cars negotiating their way through the narrow streets and alleys. Buddhist and Hindu temples and shrines are everywhere. Kathmandu was once thought to have been the fabled Shangri-La.
