There's something about Kathmandu- something magical, and something mysterious. I am not sure of the exact reason why I love Kathmandu but I can actually confirm that I love Kathmandu for bountiful reasons. Maybe the street that I stroll through spellbinds me. Every nook and cranny of Kathmandu teems with medieval temples and shrines. And this has rewarded Kathmandu with the title "City of Temples." Maybe the beautiful people and their enticing culture captivate my soul. Or maybe the rustic charm of Kathmandu that allures me for a jaunt every other week. Or maybe just maybe, the timeless ambience of the city that I've grown with is mysterious and magical. Like I said earlier, something magical and something mysterious. Kathmandu is a paradise. At least for me!

Kathmandu is for sure one of the best destinations for a spiritual sojourn and religious rejuvenation. The culture that exists since long before is a call for get-up-and-go. Explore! The medieval temples, shrines, and stupas in Kathmandu is a powerhouse of matchless elegance. Kathmandu valley is home to 7 UNESCO World Heritage sites: Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath, Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Changunarayan and Boudha Stupa. These sites are the major attractions of Kathmandu. Every year thousands of traveler visit Nepal to explore these heritage sites in Kathmandu. Kathmandu is undoubtedly a photographer's paradise-the street, temples, stupas, shrines, Newari culture, and everything about Kathmandu offers photography opportunities at every bend. And there's more.

The hustle and bustle of Kathmandu is no more an amusement to many of us. The overcrowded city is now home to more than 3 million inhabitants. The capital city, Kathmandu is the largest metropolis in Nepal. Notwithstanding the overcrowded scenario of Kathmandu, you can spend days or even weeks in Kathmandu and still not get enough of it. I bet and you will agree. 

The honking of cars, congested streets and pollutions are something to overlook and let go. Trust me, you have to do it. But then, the magic and charm of Kathmandu outstrip them. For some inexplicable reason, Kathmandu is intoxicating. Along the busy streets are tourist-friendly restaurants, pubs, and hotels. Thamel is predominantly the one finest place for tourist- a backpacker's paradise. Thamel is crammed with gear-shops, money-exchange booths, travel agencies, pubs, lodges, restaurants, ATM lounge, and shops selling everything from Pashminas to jewelry to handicrafts. In a nutshell, you can find literally everything in Thamel for trekking to the Himalayas or souvenir back home.

I love strolling around popular places like Swayambhunath, Boudhanath, Pashupatinath, and Thamel. I guess these places are familiar to you. You have had heard of it many times. What I love about these places is the serenity and calmness they offer. A visit to these places instills peace and calmness in me. Every time I visit them, there is always new feelings, blissful feelings. And not to mention an obsession to visit them again at any time. 

Every day you will find the city mutated to a new one with a chain of festivals, trance-inducing music, and hum, colors, and celebration. The street, sounds, and smells of Kathmandu are ever-changing and there's always something to love about Kathmandu. And this is the reason why I love Kathmandu.
