Welcome to Nepal!
Your tour commences in Kathmandu. Your hotel room will be available at around noon. You will also meet your tour leader at this time, in the hotel lobby.
It is contradictory how Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, at first appears unchanged since the Middle Ages and is also being developed. The colourful inhabitants of Kathmandu perform their daily routine, yet it is only fifty years since there were no real roads. The people had to travel on foot for a whole week to reach the plateau of Tibet.
After arriving at the hotel you may wish to explore the city. In the 'tourist mecca' Thamel you'll eat your first Nepalese meal. There is plenty of choice in Kathmandu. Choose a small restaurant on one of the rooftops or courtyards.
