Kathmandu is Lonely Planet’s 5th top city to visit in 2019

October 24, 2018: Kathmandu has made an entry as the 5th top travel destination in Lonely Planet’s "Top 10 cities to visit in 2019" list.
Lonely Planet writes:
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.
