Kathmandu is Nepal’s capital city and is the largest metropolitan area in Nepal. The city stands in the Kathmandu Valley at an elevation of around 4,600 feet above sea level. Many travelers start their journey to Nepal in this busy, breath-taking city. While tourists travel to Nepal for a variety of reasons, one of the big draws of the country is no doubt the adventure of trekking in the Himalayan mountain region, and it is estimated that over 200,000 trekkers make their way to Nepal each year to take on a variety of challenges, from the fairly easy to the extreme.
