Is Kathmandu Safe for Solo Female Travelers?

Kathmandu is generally safe for female travelers, however, it is important to take the necessary precautions to ensure your safety. Women should dress modestly, avoid walking alone at night, and be aware of their surroundings. It is also recommended to travel with a group or with a local guide who can provide advice on the safest areas to visit. Additionally, it is important to be aware of local customs and laws, and to respect the culture of the country.

Solo travel experience

Nepal is absolutely magical. I was in Kathmandu three years ago and loved wandering around the Durbar Squares around sunset when the street vendors came out and the spaces came alive. Patan Durbar Square is a personal favorite; cardamom-spiced chai is a must. Otherwise, my friends there took me to the ancient capital of Bhaktapur outside Kathmandu for a day trip โ€“ which comes highly recommended too.

Solo travel experience

I was in Nepal on my Everest Base Camp trek. I highly recommend doing some type of guided city tour. Some of the main sites are pretty far out from each other and it was really nice to have a driver and a guide.

Solo travel experience

Nepal is incredible, but Kathmandu can be a bit overwhelming at first. My tip is don't let anyone help you with your luggage or put it on a baggage cart at the airport. It's a well-known scam. My guide told me most of the people doing this aren't even airport employees.
