Welcome to the Kathmandu photo gallery. Here you'll find Kathmandu pictures I took in on a trip in December 1999, while visiting my brother. I spent a total of three or four days in Kathmandu staying in a guesthouse in the Thamel area - the budget travel area of Kathmandu. The pictures you see here are of the main attractions of Kathmandu: Swayambhunath, the old town, the temples, the Bodnath stupa and the Pashupatinath temple area.
Kathmandu is a relatively relaxed town, if compared to Indian towns, meaning that it is reasonably comfortable to stay there for a few days. The air however was very polluted during my stay in December 1999.
