Pokhara—Nepal’s capital city Kathmandu has been selected among the 10 best travel destinations for 2019. The world famous travel site lonely planet has listed Kathmandu in number 5 of the list.

Lonely Planet writes about Kathmandu in its site- In the aftermath of the 2015 earthquake, news reports from Kathmandu showed a city broken and in mourning, but today the narrative is all about reconstruction and rejuvenation.

Sure, there’s work to do restoring the magnificent monuments that crumbled during the disaster, but historic sites are being returned to their former glory, and moves to calm the city’s infamous traffic, smog and noise have made Kathmandu more liveable than it has been in decades. There’s even reliable electricity and wi-fi as bonus creature comforts in the atmospheric and maze-like alleyways of the old city.

Similarly, Copenhagen of Denmark, Shenzhen of China, Novi Sad of Serbia, Miami of USA, Mexico City of Mexico, Dakar of Senegal, Seattle of USA, Zadar of Croatia and Meknes of Morocco are also included in the list.
