5 Best Dating Places and Ideas in Kathmandu

| |

If you have ever got out on a date (which you most probably have), then you know it’s a process, a tough one rather. Here are 10 Dating Places and Ideas in Kathmandu to get you started.

Planning a date in Kathmandu is tough, not going to lie. That doesn’t mean you should back off from probably one of the best memories of your life. It can get challenging, especially when the date is the day after. But getting to know someone and to bond at an intimate level requires more than just a coffee meetup.

Regardless of how well you know the city, this article will help you broaden your options. Frankly, I’d pick a serene environment with fewer distractions. But there’s a problem. Kathmandu is the busiest city in Nepal. So, you always have a fear of bumping into someone you know in the back of your head. Keeping that in mind, we have curated some of the best dating places and ideas in Kathmandu. Take a look!

Chandragiri Hills

Famous for the incredible views from 2,551m, Chandragiri Hills is an experience worth trying out on your next date. The breathtaking panoramas of the Himalayas compliment the beautifully designed Bhaleshwor Mahadev Temple.

View Tower

Chandragiri Hills is approximately 10kms outside the ring road. If you enjoy sightseeing then Chandragiri Hills will not disappoint. Plus, the cable car to the hills makes the date that much more memorable.

  • Cable Car/ Entry Fee:
  • Location: Chandragiri, Kathmandu

Quick Tip: Arrive early to avoid traffic

Namobuddha

Namobuddha is yet another option for couples looking for a serene environment. However, it’s a bit further from the city. That means one needs a proper plan as a trip to Namobuddha could soak some a few hours out of your day.

Namobuddha

Moreover, Namobuddha is popular amongst locals as well. So, be prepared to encounter all sorts of people from all parts of Nepal. This also means very little privacy. The structures of Namobuddha with the backdrop of the Himalaya look mesmerizing and one should consider it.

  • Entry Fee: Free
  • Location: Namobuddha, Nepal

Quick Tip: Taking pictures is prohibited inside the structure.

Godawari Botanical Garden

If you’re from Nepal, then you probably have heard about Godawari. The garden just a few kilometers away from Kathmandu has been able to make it to the preferred dating spot for couples around town.

Godawari

Located in Lalitpur district i.e. south-east of Kathmandu. The garden extends up to 82 hectares. So, there’s a ton of space to stroll around with your loved one. Godawari is a botanical garden as well. More than 500 species of flora can be found here.

  • Entry Fee: NPR. 100 (About)
  • Location: Godawari, Lalitpur

Quick Tip:

Nagarkot

Approximately 32km north-east of Kathmandu, Nagarkot is one of the most attractive dating destinations in Nepal. One can scope out some of the breathtaking mountain range and the beautiful sunrise. I’d recommend you to stay for the night rather than rushing back to the city. Nagarkot is also known for its delightful food and restaurants. So, a day might not be enough.

  • Entry Fee: Free
  • Location: Nagarkot

Quick Tip: Plan for 1 night & 2 days trip

Manjushree Park

If you don’t intend to leave the city yet would want a serene environment among nature then Manjushree Park could be a better option. The park is located approximately 1km from Chovar Hill. It is a relatively closer dating spot also famous for the longest cave in Nepal.

Named after the great Buddhist monk, Manjushree Park is believed to be established after the monk sliced the gorge letting the water out of the Kathmandu valley. Regardless of its history, you will have one of the soothing experience with your significant other.

  • Entry Fee: NPR. 50 to NPR. 150
  • Location: Chovar, Kirtipur

Higly recommended I did the Langtang Valley trekk with Gosaikunda lakes included. The preparation and communication for that has been great all the time. Nim is an excellent and knowledgeable person. My Trekkingguide was Gorakh and i couldn't have hoped for a better one! I felt like i was in good hands throughout the trekk and he took care of my dietary needs. They also booked my bus ticket to Pokhara and asked the bus driver to pick me up at a place which was closer to my accommodation. Thank you so much Nim!! Next time i will do the Manaslu trekk with you :)

Trek to Rara Lake in Nepal with CoreTreks My wife and I had been planning to visit Nepal since like a year ago. We are really happy and satisfied with our trek to Rara Lake in Nepal. The place is really chilling with beautiful scenery all around. Luckily the weather was fantastic and we got a clear view of the mountains and the lake. We are really humbled to be able to experience such a rare privilege. Our guides informed us that the weather is often bad especially because of the altitude. The alpine vegetation surrounded by mountains was really special to observe. I would like to thank CoreTreks for helping us throughout our journey to Rara Lake.

Great service Beautiful temples and delicious food After touring around the Kathmandu valley, I’m inspired to explore more about Nepal. Unfortunately it will have to be during my next visit. The city is way busier than I expected it to be. As we drove outside the valley, we discovered some peaceful environment and beautiful temples. The Nepali cuisine in Kathmandu was something I would love to try again. They are spicy but delicious. I have to say that the people in Nepal are really friendly and welcoming. Everyone greeted us with love and treated us nicely. There was no fear for a lone traveler like me to get through the tour. Thanks to CoreTreks and the team for making this tour possible for me. I booked last minute but they helped me through everything. I really appreciate it. If you are looking to visit Nepal, I highly recommend that you book from CoreTreks they are the best.

Langtang Trekking 이제 돌아와서 한숨돌리고 적네요. 네팔이란 나라가 처음이고, 한국에서도 등산한번 하지 않았었는데, 갑자기 네팔이 가고 싶었습니다. 네팔에 가면 뭔가 꽉막힌 마음이 뚤릴것 같았고, 복잡한 머리가 정리가 될것 같았습니다. 다행이 CORE TREK 의 Nim을 만나 트레킹을 잘 마무리할 수 있었습니다. 랑탕 출발하기전 호텔 부킹이나 팀스 / 퍼밋 , 환전 및 준비물 구매 등 그리고 이런 일들을 하기위한 이동까지 꼼꼼하게 함께 챙겨 주어서 그나마 잘 준비하여 트레킹을 시작하였습니다. 그리고 트레킹 중간에 대부분이 3G를 사용하지 못해 가족들에게 연락이 되지 않았는데, 다행이 Nim과는 현지 폰으로 연락이 되어, 저 대신 가족들에게 연락도 가능하고, 중간 중간에 문제 있는지등 그리고 복귀 마지막날 뭔가를 잘못먹었는데 아파서 호텔에서만 누워 있었는데, 그래도 타국에 누군가 연락할 수 있다는게 많은 도움이 되더군요. 저는 포터 및 가이드 없이 혼자서 갔다왔고, 트레킹이야 혼자만의 싸움이였지만, 카트만두 출발전 / 복귀후에는 Nim이 많은 도움이 되었네요. 다음에 또 네팔에 오게되면 필히 Nim과 함께 하겠습니다.
