Welcome to the Kathmandu LocalWiki!

A website about Kathmandu that anyone can edit

I want to make a page about

Kathmandu (काठमाण्डु) is the largest city and capital of Nepal and the namesake of the Kathmandu Valley. Once thought to be the fabled and inaccessible Shangri-La, Kathmandu is now a hub for independent travellers as well as a growing vacation spot catering to all budgets. As a result of considerable urban growth in recent decades, it is now part of one continuous urban area together with Patan or Lalitpur 5 km to the south and Bhaktapur 14 km to the east. The city is at an elevation of approximately 1400 metres in a bowl-shaped valley in central Nepal surrounded by four major mountains, namely: Shivapuri, Phulchowki, Nagarjun and Chandragiri.
