Travel with Children

Because of the pollution and traffic, Kathmandu is not an easy place to travel with children. Kids will probably enjoy the zoo in nearby Patan and older kids will get a thrill from spotting the monkeys at Swayambhunath.

Away from the tourist areas, highchairs are virtually nonexistent, but finding non-spicy food that children will eat isn’t a problem.

Pilgrims Book House has a fine collection of kids’ books, including colouring books.
