Tour leaving from Kathmandu

Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal; it is an exuberant place full of sights, sounds, and smells that are captivating. Kathmandu’s name comes from a structure of the Durbar square which is called Kasthamandap; its origin goes back to the word ‘Kastha’ in sanskrit, which means wood, as well as the word ‘Mandap’ which means cover.
