Now, Kathmandu is the hustling and bustling capital and the most developed and populated city of Nepal. It has at least 130 important monuments, including several pilgrimage sites for Hindus and Buddhists which come under the World Heritage Sites.
At one of the top places in the valley, there is a place called Nagarkot, which is famous for hiking among the tourists. The view of the mountains from there, including that of Everest, is spectacular.
