For generations of travellers, the experience of arriving in Kathmandu has been something of a rude awakening from pre-arrival perceptions of Nepal as a land of mantras, mountain winds and chiming temple bells. The mantras, mountains and monasteries are there, and in abundance, but life in Kathmandu has been long been blighted by its chaotic road network, and the knock-on effects of traffic jams, vehicle noise and pollution.
Kathmandu, Nepal's capital, is set in a valley surrounded by the Himalayan mountains. At the heart of the old city’s mazelike alleys is Durbar Square, which becomes frenetic during Indra Jatra, a religious festival featuring masked dances. Many of the city's historic sites were damaged or destroyed by a 2015 earthquake. Durbar Square's palace, Hanuman Dhoka, and Kasthamandap, a wooden Hindu temple, are being rebuilt.
