Kathmandu is often called the Gateway to the Himalayas and has a rich cultural history which dates back about two thousand years. Yet it is also the cosmopolitan heart of the Himalayan Region.
It is believed that the name is derived from the Sanskrit term, 'Kastha-Mandap' meaning the temple made of wood, an imposing pagoda near Hanuman Dhoka Palace. It was built in 1596 out of a single tree by King Laxmi Narashingha Malla.
Nepal is also home to endless amounts of wildlife, such as tigers, rhinoceros, monkeys, bears, yaks, leopards and a myriad of insects and birds, boasting almost 10 percent of the world's bird species among which 500 species are found in the Kathmandu Valley.
Mountains, hills, valleys and plains dominate the landscape of Nepal that extends from the Himalayan range in the north to the Indo-Gangetic lowlands in the south, spanning about 147,181 sq.km. To the south, west and east, is India, and to the North, China. The capital city of Nepal is Kathmandu. With eight of the worlds ten highest peaks, Nepal is glittered with spectacular mountains vistas
Because of its elevation, Nepal can be divided into three zones - the high mountains, the mid-hills and the flat plains called the Terai. The Everest, Langtang and Annpurna trekking destinations in the mountains are cool throughout the year. The mid-hills, including Kathmandu and Pokhara, are cool except in the summer months from May to July. Temperatures in these cities during the summer remain much cooler than in many cities of the region. Lumbini, Chitwan and Janakpur in the Terai plains are hot in summer (March - July) but cold in winter (December-February)
Nepal has four seasons.
(a) Spring: March - May
