Kathmandu is the arrival point for most of the visitors in Nepal. This small mountain sheltered valley is the historic center and the Capital of Nepal. This is the place where kingdoms rose and fell, palaces and temples are built and rebuilt, art and cultures are refined and protected. Kathmandu city is the largest in Nepal and is surrounded by green hills all over. Scattered around the valley are hundreds of temples and shrines, traditional villages and agriculture scenes of timeless beauty. You can see all these places by taxi, cycle, bus and by foot

                     
                                       Kathmandu Durbar Square

History
The Newars are regarded as the original inhabitants of this majestic valley, but their origins are shrouded in mystery. They speak Newari language and their physical features range from distinctively Mongoloid. Kathmandu Valley has long been a cultural and racial melting pot with people coming from both east and west. This fusion has resulted in the unique Newari culture that is responsible for the valley's superb art and architecture. Kathmandu was once run and ruled by Malla Kings during 1600s and 1700s. The unification of Nepal in 1768 by Gorkhas King Prithivi Narayan Shah singled the end of the Kathmandu Valleys fragmentation. Nepali language spoken by the Khas of western Nepal, replaced Newari as the country's language of administration.

Geography
Surrounded by the green hills, Kathmandu Valley is about 25 km from east to west and 20km from north to south. It lies at the height of 1300m. You can see Kathmandu Valley clearly while you are fly in. This valley is specially known for growing rice corn, wheat and vegetables. However, nowadays this valley is increasingly dependent on imported food and fuels. All the rivers drain towards the center of the valley and join the Bagmati river. Geologist have confirmed ancient myths that claim the valley once lay under water.

Climate
The Kathmandu Valley has the pleasant climate most of the year. Although there are forests, snow is unheard of and the monsoons are nowhere near. Between October and March it can become quite cold at night and the days become short, although its sunny and warm between mid-morning and afternoon. In April things start to heat up and there are often storm in the afternoon.

People
Still today, Newars form the largest single group in the valley as well as in smaller towns and villages. Bahuns, Tamangs and Chettris live on the surrounding hills. People living in Kathmandu Valley are mostly Hindus and Buddhist and they are very much related to each others religion. People living here speak Newari and Nepali mostly.

Religion
In Kathmandu Valley majority of people are Hindu and fall under a caste system, although there are still second majority of Buddhists. This valley is full of temples, shrines and stupas where both Buddhists and Hindus go for their regular praying. Nepal is the only country where people worship Gods of all religion.

Namche Bazaar (नाम्चे बजार−also Nemche Bazaar or Namche Bazar) is a village in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Namche is located at 3,440 metres (11,286 ft) (the low point that is), populating the sides of a hill. Namche is the main trading center for the Khumbu region so there are many Nepalese officials, a police check, post and a bank.

If the thought of trekking to Everest Base Camp (EBC) leaves you dripping with sweat and reaching for the nearest cigarette and doughnut then please just consider going as far as Namche. Namche is the last town on the trek before you get to Base Camp. If you were silly enough to not get your supplies from kathmandu (or ate all your mars bars) then this is the cheapest place en route. It also has the most options en route. Namche is a stunning 3440m above sea level and is the gateway to so many paths in history. Great explorers, great losses, friendships made and broken, the place has a magic... you can almost taste the atmosphere in the air, the taste of hope, joy and wonder! Namche is a days walk from Lukla (or 2 days if you smoke 20-a-day). This is a sometimes bustling town , teaming with Sherpa life. Yaks roam the streets like dogs waking you gently with the sounds of their bells. Food here is plentyful, bakeries, small convience stores and every hotel has it's focal point.. the dining room. Crammed with people from all over the globe either on their way up or coming back down. Whether you are leaving the trek or just starting it then you have to pass by Namche.

Favourite spots:
Namche is a working town. Even though their sole industry is tourism, you always get the feeling that culture and daily life override everything. There are lots of walks to do from here if you need to adjust to the altitude or just see the sights. Namche is surrounded by mountains, snow capped with icy waterfalls running down their sides into the valley and river below. Looking back down the trail you can see meandering paths, cris crossing the mountain side. There is a museum here if you fancy a small trek. It's not very detailed but neither is the majority of things like this in Nepal. You can use the internet here too! Obviously a lot more expensive than in Kathmandu but they can give you the option of writing it offline for a lesser charge. Twice a week there is a market in Namche. It's a great opportunity to see Sherpa life in action.. and you can even buy yourself a yak!!

Those pictures are convincing enough for tourists to travel Nepal. Nepal is an underrated country when it comes to mystic and beauty.
