Thamel, Nepal
Our rooftop view in Thamel

The roof of the world, that is! Standing atop a rooftop in busy Thamel, Kathmandu, looking out across the circle of mountains surrounding the city. On top of a roof, the smog isn’t so bad, the sounds of the city echo through alleys below, and you can scan for monkeys while relaxing in the sun. Up on the roof: the place to be in Nepal.
