In a competition with snowcapped peaks, a dirty and smelly city will never win – and Kathmandu is definitely dirty and smelly.Still, many people only use Kathmandu as a transit hub for trekking. You can't go to Kathmandu without going to Thamel neighborhood. Really, you can't – packed with hotels and restaurants, Thamel is almost definitely where you'll have to stay. The Monkey Temple towers over Kathmandu.But one of the most interesting places in Kathmandu isn't technically in the city at all. Patan is a separate city, but just barely; it's right next door to Kathmandu, and in the short cab ride between them, you won't even notice that you're leaving one municipality and entering another. For less well-heeled travelers, Trekkers Home is one of the best cheap hotels in the city at about $30 a night.
