Kathmandu Valley :

Namaste ! welcome in Kathmandu valley. For most visitors to Nepal, the Kathmandu valley is their arrival point and focus of their visit.Geographically, the bowl-like valley is about 25 km from east to west, perhaps 20 km from north to south. Kathmandu lies at a height of around 1300 meters; which gives it a temperate climate, while the surrounding hills range from 1500 meters to 2800 meters in height. If you fly in, you are made forcibly aware how isolated and unusual the valley is embedded like a jewel in endless ranges of rugged mountains.This small mountains sheltered valley is the historical center of Nepal and the place were kingdoms rose and fell, pal- aces and Temples were built and rebuilt,and Nepalese art and culture were developed and refined.The three major towns - Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan- each has an artistic and architectural tradition that rivals anything you might find in the great cities of Europe or USA. Kathmandu is the capital and the largest city in the country. It also has the international airport and is where most visitors stay. Patan is the second largest city is separated from Kathmandu by a river but in other respects the two cities are virtually continuous Bhaktapur, the third largest city is towards the eastern end of the valley. Beyond the cities lie the hundreds of temples and shrines, Buddist monasteries, traditional villages and agricultural scenes of timeless beauty. A great deal is easily accessible by bicycle, bus ,Taxi and Car, but the more time you have the better.The Newaris are regarded as the original inhabitants of the Kathmandu valley. But their origins are shrouded in mystery.They speak a Tibeto Burmese language, which indicates they originated in the east, but their physical features range from distinctively Mongoloid. The valley`s visible history is inextricably entangled with the Malla kings. It was during their reign. Particularly in the 1600 Bs. and 1700 Bs., that many of valley`s finest temples and palaces were built. The valley is phenomenally fertile capable of growing grains and a wide range of fruits and vegetables, however, during these days the population is continuing to grow and urban development is rapidly encroaching on valuable agricultural lands. So, the valley is increasingly dependent on imported food and fossil fuels. a numbers of rivers drain towards the center of the valley and joined the holy Bagmati river, which then flows south through the Chobar Gorge to finally reach the Ganges river. Geologists have confirmed ancient myths that claim the valley once lay under water. ( in accordance with ancient myths,the Kathmandu valley once lay under the water. Same time an small island (present time`s Swoyambunath temple) was located in the center of the big lake. Like, the unusual persons could accessible over there for it`s worship, but, not usual persons. So, to accessible such persons over there for its worship. The Manjushree God had drained out the water from the valley through the Chobar Gorge, after cutting the Chobar hill with his unusual Sword. Then slowly valley was populated after its inhabitable)
