Kathmandu, Baktapur, Pokhara, Patan, Jomson, Muktinath, Annapurna Circle, Everest, All these places are dignat enough to touch heaven!

Back streets

Get lost in a maze or back street courtyards and meet friendly locals.

Mythical, i longed for, dreamed.

Mythical, longed, dreamed. I arrived by bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara, after an exciting four-day trek through the Annapurna. It had been two months traveling with my backpack in tow. He had traveled the north of India, and even though the trip had been amazing, had left the capital of Nepal for last. As dessert, like chocolate that bit of reserve in the bag to sweeten the mouth, like that glass of wine for the end of the party. Set in the mythical Valley of Kathmandu, the city where it coexists with Buddhism Hinduism exiled from Tibet, where it mixes some of the incredible variety of ethnic groups living in Nepal, whose origins date back to the second century, is a maze where looming temples and palaces built mostly in the seventeenth century. Kathmandu is not big and just have a million and a half people. But it is a universe, a blow to the senses, a site packed with unique places, a city that seduces and unravel challenges. Instant by instant, block by block, the urban landscape changes and hypnotize you. Among the places you can not miss are Durbar Square, Kathesimblu Stupa, Tahiti Tole, Asan Tole, Indra Chowk, The Garden of Dreams, Thamel, Bouddhanath Tibetan neighborhood, and the shocking Pashupatinath. Kathmandu is a magical and mysterious. Unravel is a fascinating adventure.

Mítico, ansiado, soñado.

Mítico, ansiado, soñado. Llegué a Kathmandu en bus desde Pokhara, luego de un apasionante trek de cuatro días por el Annapurna. Hacía ya dos meses que viajaba con mi mochila a cuestas. Había recorrido el norte de la India, y a pesar de que todo el viaje había sido increíble, había dejado la capital de Nepal para el final. Como el postre, como ese pedacito de chocolate que reservamos en la mochila para endulzar la boca, como esa copa de buen vino para el final de fiesta.
Enclavada en el mítico Valle de Kathmandu, la ciudad donde convive el hinduismo con el budismo exiliado del Tibet, donde se mezcla una parte de la increíble variedad de grupos étnicos que habitan Nepal, y cuyos orígenes se remontan al siglo II, es un laberinto a donde asoman templos y palacios construidos en su mayoría en el siglo XVII. Kathmandu no es grande y apenas tiene un millón y medio de habitantes. Pero es un universo, un golpe a los sentidos, un sitio atiborrado de rincones únicos, una ciudad que seduce y desafía a desentrañarla. Instante a instante, cuadra a cuadra, el paisaje urbano cambia y te hipnotiza. Entre los sitios que no puedes perderte están Durbar Square, Kathesimblu Stupa, Tahiti Tole, Asan Tole, Indra Chowk, El Jardín de los Sueños, Thamel, el barrio tibetano de Bodhnath, y la impactante Pashupatinath. Kathmandu es un mundo mágico y misterioso. Desentrañarlo es una aventura fascinante.

The old medieval kathmand

The old and narrow streets running through the area around the original nucleus Kastahamandap constitute around which developed the medieval Kathmandu. The area around the old town developed radially and so in subsequent years saw the light of the Royal Palace and Durbar Square. Walking slowly along the diagonal that starts from Kastahamandap and crosses AsanTole, old Katamandú runs a rural distilling that is intoxicating if known breathe slowly. Notables palatial buildings accompany us on our walk, while here and there occur beautiful facades richly decorated with carved windows, squares where fountains, monuments and small temples compete in unique beauty. After the maze of narrow streets, open doors of some houses glimpse spacious patios in looming statues and temples. The urban structure of old Kathmandu as complex and beautiful at the same time, conceals a labyrinth, crowded world whose population offered daily a colorful spectacle that takes place in the best possible scenario, the old streets of Kathmandu. At any time of day, doubling every corner, dark courtyards penetrate inside which opens a new miniature city astonished observe countless vendors who roam the city with their bikes crowded gender, small shopkeepers whose premises hypnotize us with their special color and enchant us with odors, from hairdressers whose business barely fit a single customer, which blacksmiths forge opens at street level of storytelling around which crowded tadpoles chubby painted eyes of mystical and holy men with pose distracted or just we look at the people running the district. If you have time enough, not limitéis to visit the famous sights of the city, wander through its historic center, thousands of years of history contemplate you ....

El viejo kathmandú medieval

Las viejas y estrechas callejuelas que recorren el área entorno a Kastahamandap constituyen el núcleo primigenio entorno al cual se desarrolló el Katmandú medieval. Entorno a esta zona la vieja ciudad se fue desarrollando de forma radial y así en años sucesivos vieron la luz el Palacio Real y la plaza Durbar.

Paseando sin prisa por la diagonal que arranca de Kastahamandap y atraviesa AsanTole, el viejo Katamandú discurre destilando un aire rural que resulta embriagador si se sabe respirar sin prisa. Notables edificios de aire palaciego nos acompañan en nuestro paseo, mientras aquí y allá se suceden bellas fachadas adornadas con ventanales profusamente labrados, plazas en las que fuentes, monumentos y pequeños templos compiten en singular belleza.

Tras el laberinto de estrechas callejas, las puertas abiertas de algunas casas dejan entrever amplios patios en los que se vislumbran estatuas y templetes.

La estructura urbana del viejo Katmandú tan compleja y bella a la vez, esconde un mundo laberíntico y abarrotado cuya población ofrece a diario un colorido espectáculo que se desarrolla en el mejor escenario posible, las viejas calles de Katmandú.

A cualquier hora del día, al doblar cualquier esquina, al penetrar en oscuros patios en cuyo interior se abre una nueva ciudad en miniatura observaremos atónitos un sin fin de vendedores ambulantes que recorren la ciudad con sus bicicletas atestadas de género, de pequeños comerciantes cuyos locales nos hipnotizan con su especial colorido y nos hechizan con olores penetrantes, de peluqueros en cuyo negocio apenas si cabe un único cliente, de herreros cuya fragua se abre a pie de calle, de cuenta cuentos cuyo alrededor se agolpan mofletudos renacuajos de ojos pintados, de santones con pose mística y distraída o simplemente nos fijaremos en las gentes corrientes del barrio.

Si disponéis de tiempo suficiente, no os limitéis a visitar los preciosos monumentos de la ciudad, perderos por su centro histórico, miles de años de historia os contemplarán….

What about kathmandu? this city is pr...

What about Kathmandu? This city is probably not the most representative of Nepal, as Paris is not fully representative of France ... But it has its charm, his interests, his soul! As introduction, arriving in the country, it can be a bit violent: Traffic chaos, palpable pollution (at least at the time when I went there), horn at all costs ... But we eventually get used to it! The tourist district, Thamel, is a huge mess mixing restaurants, shops and tourist objects, clothing, trekking equipment, exchange offices, guesthouses and street vendors! Around the city is great and its streets, which do not always have names, are numerous and intertwined. We soon learned to locate a minimum, but even a cursory plan will be welcome. Public transport are a real charm, including tuk tuk, embarking on their plate even more people than they should, history of profitable routes. Rickshaws also often driven by rural came to make a little money in town. You can not walk down the street without being honked at least once by a "squeaker" childish but insisting! Do not forget to get lost in centuries of history at Durbar Square of the city and its old center, dotted with innumerable temples with bold architecture (wood and brick without mortar) and delicate carvings. From the city, you can easily find (a guide to help) buses to many destinations: Pokhara, Chitwan, Bhaktapur, etc..

Que dire de Katmandou ?! Cette ville n'est sans doute pas la plus représentative du Népal, tout comme Paris n'est pas totalement représentative de la France... Mais elle a son charme, ses centres d'intérêts, son âme !

Comme entrée en matière, en arrivant dans le pays, ça peut être un peu violent : Circulation chaotique, pollution palpable (du moins à la période où j'y suis allé), klaxon à tout va... Mais on finit par s'y faire !

Le quartier touristique, Thamel, est un gigantesque bazar mêlant restaurants, boutiques d'objets pour touristes, de vêtements, de matériel de trekking, bureaux de change, guesthouses et marchands ambulants !
Autour la ville est grande et ses rues, qui n'ont pas toujours de nom, sont nombreuses et entremêlées. On apprend vite à s'y repérer un minimum, mais un plan même sommaire sera le bienvenu.

Les transports en commun y sont un vrai charme, notamment les tuk tuk, qui embarquent sous leur tôle bien plus de personnes qu'ils ne devraient, histoire de rentabiliser les trajets. Les rickshaws également, souvent conduit par des ruraux venus se faire un peu d'argent en ville. Vous ne pourrez pas marcher en ville sans vous faire klaxonner au moins une fois par un "pouet pouet" enfantin mais insistant !

N'oubliez pas d'aller vous perdre dans des siècles d'histoire au Durbar Square de la ville et dans son vieux centre, ponctués d'innombrables temples à l'architecture audacieuse (bois et brique, sans mortier) et aux gravures délicates.

De la ville, vous trouverez facilement (un guide aidant) des bus pour de nombreuses destinations : Pokhara, Chitwan, Bhaktapur, etc.

I am to return soon

A wonderful experience. Among Kathmad, Lalitpur (Patan), Pokhara. They come back soon. The people are wonderful, its gastronomy, its culture, customs. The Thamel neighborhood I love, the bustle, the sound of cars, bells, namaste, permanent smile on the face of all of them, children, kindness. Wonderful and unique experience

Se que volveré muy pronto

Una experiencia maravillosa. Entre Kathmadú, Lalitpur (Patan), Pokhara. Se que volveré muy pronto. La gente es maravillosa, su gastronomía, su cultura, costumbres. El barrio de El Thamel me encanta, el bullicio, el sonido de los coches, las campanillas, el NAMASTE, la sonrisa permanente en el rostro de todos ellos, los niños, la amabilidad. Maravillosa y única experiencia

Dconcertante capital

A very large bustling city, which launches in suburbs, its tentacles noisy polluted streets. But also charming neighborhoods with narrow streets. wonderful entertainment and what scenery! Religion is everywhere: offerings to every corner, affecting the cleanliness and certainly did multiply and pigeons ..? rats? Similarly, electrical son are unsightly to beautiful carved wooden facades. Rickshaw from another age and surprising shops. We walk into a huge bazaar open between Thamel, the tourist district and the historic center of Durbar Square.

Capitale déconcertante

Une très grande ville grouillante, qui lance, en grande banlieue, ses tentacules bruyantes aux rues polluées. Mais aussi des quartiers pleins de charme avec leurs ruelles étroites. animation formidable et quel dépaysement ! La religion est présente partout : offrandes à chaque coin de rue, ce qui nuit certes à la propreté et fait pulluler pigeons et ?.. rats ?
De même, les fils électriques sont inesthétiques devant de magnifiques façades de bois sculpté.
Cyclopousse d'un autre âge et boutiques surprenantes. On se promène dans un immense bazar à ciel ouvert entre Thamel, le quartier touristique, et le centre historique de Durbar Square.

This curious image mixing traditional and "modern". We see a monk praying with a traditional attire, while with his granny glasses to read his prayer book. Kathmandu is a beautiful place, very clean. The people are very friendly. I almost liked it better than India, but only stayed two days. But: A queue with a visa to enter ... Because it must be done at the airport, and of course, they get 200 people at the same time .... : (In the middle of the main square is this stupa. Monks walk around it, in the sense of clockwise. A small restaurant with a terrace from which you can make great pictures, and eat pretty well . It's a beautiful place, full of color.

Esta curiosa imagen mezcla lo tradicional con lo "moderno". Vemos a un monje rezando con un atuendo tradicional, y al mismo tiempo con sus gafitas para leer su libro de oraciones. Kathmandú es un sitio precioso, muy limpio. La gente es muy amable. Y casi me gustó más que la India, aunque sólo estuvimos dos días.
Eso sí: Unas colas con el visado para entrar... Porque hay que hacerlo en el mismo aeropuerto, y claro, se ponen 200 personas a la vez a lo mismo.... :(

En medio de la plaza principal está esta estupa. Los monjes caminan alrededor de ella, en el sentido de las agujas del reloj. Hay un pequeño restaurante con una terraza desde la que se pueden hacer fotos muy buenas, y se come bastante bien. Es un lugar precioso, lleno de color.

A tale city

A city where lost in its ancient streets, beautiful architecture with endless color contrasts. Their flags waving throughout the city, its always friendly and smiling people, the beauty of its landscape, the chaotic but orderly life of this city, make your stay the best ever travel that can make

Una ciudad de cuento

Una ciudad donde perderse entre sus calles milenarias, de hermosa arquitectura con un sinfín de contrastes de colores. Sus banderillas ondean por toda la ciudad, sus gentes siempre amables y sonrientes, la belleza de su paisaje, la vida caotica pero ordenada de esta ciudad, convierten tu estancia, en el mejor de los viajes que jamás puedas realizar

Cozy and intense journey

We were 4 days in Nepal, where we took a tour of the capital and several towns in Nepal, Accompanied by a wonderful guide who explained all architectures detail, traditions, constumbres, and all he did so in a friendly and simptico mode. Despite the consequences of the earthquake suffered by the country, the locals are optimistic (I think by nature), and work hard to restore the situation that is lived in the country before the earthquake. There desire to return, looking forward ...

Acojedor e intenso viaje

Estuvimos 4 días en Nepal, donde hicimos un tour por la capital y varios pueblos del Nepal, acompañados de un maravilloso guía que nos explicaba con todo detalle aquitectura, tradiciones, constumbres, y todo lo hacía de un modo amable y simpático. A pesar de las consecuencias del terremoto que ha sufrido el país, la gente del lugar es optimista (creo que por naturaleza), y trabajan duro para recuperar la situación que se vivía en el país antes del terremoto.
Hay ganas de volver, muchas ganas...

The coffee of the temple is one of the many coffee we find little about the place of durbar square in Patan. Its advantage is its terrace is the highest of any dnne and a live view of the square and its monuments. However the prices are a bit expensive and average food; One has to stop for a drink without doutepas to eat, but the view is so amazing to do.

Le caf du temple est l'un des nombreux café que l'on peu trouver sur la place de durbar square a Patan. Son avantage est sa terrasse qui est la plus haute de toute et dnne une vue direct sur le square et ses monuments. En revanche les prix sont un peu cher et la nourriture moyenne; Il faut s'y arreter pour boire un verre, sans doutepas pour manger, mais la vue est imprenable donc a faire.

Viva la vida

I arrived in Kathmandu 10 days after the earthquake of May 2015, and the first day I met these children playing and laughing in front of the rubble of a house destroyed completely while their parents separating whole bricks. I asked if their house had been reached and they answered: - That was our home ... (laughs) ... but everything is fine, the children are well and happy, then we're good.

Viva la vida

Cheguei em Kathmandu 10 dias após os terremotos de maio de 2015, e logo no primeiro dia encontrei essas crianças brincando e rindo muito na frente dos escombros de uma casa totalmente destruída, enquanto seus pais separando tijolos inteiros.

Perguntei se a casa deles tinha sido atingida e eles responderam:
- Essa era nossa casa... (risos)... mas está tudo bem, as crianças estão bem e felizes, então estamos bem.
