We're not talking about Kathmandu, the camping goods retailer, here. This is the capital of Nepal, a colourful, engrossing city that was a stop along the Hippie Trail in the 1970s.

Many visitors will arrive on flights to Kathmandu and use the city as a jumping-off point for trekking adventures in the Himalayas.

Kathmandu sits at the heart of an oval-shaped valley surrounded by four snow-topped mountains - Shivapuri, Phulchoki, Nagarjun and Chandragiri. Travellers planning on taking cheap flights to Kathmandu should make sure they have enough time to take in all the sights and sounds of this colourful, otherworldly place.

In the Kathmandu Valley there are no fewer than seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Several of them are in the city. These are: Durbar Square, where the courtyards feature ancient temples and palaces and where the Living Goddess resides; the Hindu temples of Pashupatinath and Changunarayan and the Buddha stupas of Swayambu (known also as the Monkey Temple) and Boudhanath (that flag-festooned, gold-roofed temple with the arresting faces).

Freak Street was once Kathmandu's wildest street. It's no longer the magnet for enlightenment-seeking travellers that it once was. It's still worth a wander, although Thamel is now the backpacker part of town.
