Lonely Planet has yet again listed Kathmandu as one of the top cities to visit in 2019.
Kathmandu lies in fourth spot after Miami, USA. Copenhagen of Denmark lies in the first position followed by Shenzen, China.
According to the lonely planet, In the aftermath of the 2015 earthquake, news reports from Kathmandu showed a city broken and in mourning, but today the narrative is all about reconstruction and rejuvenation. Sure, there’s work to do restoring the magnificent monuments that crumbled during the disaster, but historic sites are being returned to their former glory, and moves to calm the city’s infamous traffic, smog and noise have made Kathmandu more liveable than it has been in decades. There’s even reliable electricity and wi-fi as bonus creature comforts in the atmospheric and maze-like alleyways of the old city.
