Kathmandu - Nepal’s largest city - is the urban core of the Kathmandu Valley in the Himalayas. It contains two sister cities: Lalitpur (Patan), 5 kilometers to its south, and Bhaktapur or Bhadgaon, 12 kilometers to its east, and a number of smaller towns. It is also acronymed as "KTM" and named the "Tri-City." Kathmandu, and particularly the tourist area Thamel, has a large variety of Western food, shopping, guest houses and internet cafes. However, even this area can have an old world feel with its labyrinth of small restaurants and shops.
