Kathmandu

Kathmandu is the capital and largest city in Nepal. Set on an elevation of 1,337 metres above sea level, with a population of over around 800,000, Kathmandu is the the most modern city in the country - which isn't necessarily saying much. In Kathmandu, modern development encounters a laid-back, devoutly Hindu society.
