I've pretty much walked everywhere. I've seen most of the temples, (furthest away one's are only about an hour and a half) stayed in Thamel a lot of the time and walked to just about everything:)
In any case I've never paid more than 15 rupees to get anywhere (except the airport that put me back 120 rupee's!). Just take the nice and easy mini vans...they're pretty much all white in colour. I don't know people here and don't speak the language and in my first 3 days managed to see a fair bit. Also single, white, blonde female had relatively no problems walking the streets at night. Definitely a solo traveller friendly kind of place. Oh if you don't travel much, maybe you would feel safer travelling like most of the other Westerners in taxi's...they charge loads (300-700 rupee's for most things)...but can get you around fine safely, if you like to travel in more comfort :)

Have fun,
Louise :)

To be frank....a life time is not even enough to enjoy living in Nepal...
anywayz since you are going for a 3 day visit to kathmandu.....Visit couple of places as a must visit- Basantpur, Thamel, Syambhunath temple, Bhaktapur, Lalitpur...n these are the places you can easily travel wid in 3 days...

Do some street shoppin in d evenin u wud love it to d core n hell ye enjoy the nepali food and delicious.......

By d way I am a born nepali living in New Delhi, India.

Dear all ,

Thanks for your kind advise.was wondering for few days.
I decided to go only India for this coming trip,was thinking 3days touch and go for Nepal is a bit meaningless.
Will want to plan another trip for Nepal only in the future =) will see Nepal again.

Thanks!
