Top 10 Best Cities In Nepal

The Top Ten
1 Pokhara

Kathmandu is more well known, and historically more attractive, with the malla temples and whatnot. But it's lost its appeal. It's crowded, dirty, and you can't see the mountains that much anymore. Butwal, Chitwan, Dharan is way too hot, Terai cities like Birgunj are just worse. 30C is hot weather in pokhara and 35C+ never happens. It is right in front of Macchapuchharre (mt fishtail) and within 50 aerial miles of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Manaslu, which are 10th, 8th, and 7th tallest mountains in the WORLD. And yet it never drops below -2C. Absolutely everything about this city is so appealing

I have been to 20+ cities of Nepal and all are pretty good but I think Pokhara is the best city of Nepal. It is nature blessed city, I have no words to explain about its beauty. Very clean and safe for all foreign and domestic tourists.

Y is kathmandu #1? It's the biggest city, with hundreds of temples but it is dirty, crowded and too many riots. But pokhara? This city is so much mor green, has over 4 square km of clean water, the lake Fewa Tal and Seti river. Machapuchre (mt. Fishtail) is amazing and very close. Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Manaslu, the 10th,7th and 8th tallest mountains in the WORLD are within 100 kms of this city, but you never get snow. Its never been colder than -2C (29F) in the city. It's the best.

Pokhara is most beautiful city in the world.
If you are not been there, you must go once then once is not enough for you because of its natural beauty excellent.

2 Kathmandu

The Kathmandu valley has many nicknames like " K-Town", "City Of Event", "Cherry On The Cake". It is the most developed and populated place in Nepal. The majority of offices and headquarters are located in the valley making it the economic hub of Nepal. It is popular with tourists for its unique, rich, culture and architecture; including the highest number of jatras in Nepal. The valley itself was referred to as "Nepal Proper" by British historians.

Kathmandu known as city of temples different devotees visit Kathmandu from India to South Korea.
City with enormous opportunities of travel agents and hotels.
One of the oldest and most important place of the world.
Gateway of India and China.
Kathmandu a place where tourist can enjoy it's dirty wonderful smell..

Kathmandu is best for daily life, where pokhara, chitwan,these are best for visit purpose.
you can find anything in kathmandu, and it's a place where dreams comes true, where k-town will provide so many good opportunities to all the peoples of NEPAL.

Kathmandu is a great place. It is Nepal's capital and it is the place where you see all kinds of people. It has got the greatest palaces of Nepal and temples etc..

3 Butwal

Butwal is the 1st business center in Nepal. It is a business hub of Nepal.
It is safe from many natural disaster. It is worthy to invest in Butwal rather then investing on other places.

Well Butwal is number 1 place to live in Nepal. siddha baba temple,gitgadi killa,global peace park etc is also an attraction of Butwal which let the world know that the Butwal is also one of the finest city all across Nepal. Butwal also became one of bones of contention leading to the Gurkha War.

Very clean city, way cleaner than dirty Kathmandu. Well planned roads and planned city. Nepali city built to almost western standards. Cultural mosaic of traditional Tharu people, Bahun-Chhetri as well as Magar from Palpa and other districts, and Madhesi people from the south, and Newar from Kathmandu. Very close to Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha. Near the highway, very good connections to Bhairahawa, and the Nepal India border at Sunauli, road connection to many places in western Nepal. No mountains :( but the Palpa hills are visible. Just a really nice place, u must visit Batauli!

Butwal is number 1 city of Nepal to live in...

4 Bharatpur

In Nepal I think Bhartpur is best in all way to live...it's also known as medical city...education centre for all faculty...it's a heart of Nepal...gifted with Narayani and rapti river...good transport facility...connection with major cities of Nepal by roadways,airways and very soon Nepal's first ship is going to start on Narayani river...in agriculture sector I think chitwan Bharatpur is a supplier to all parts of Nepal...so in future definitely it will beats every other city of Nepal...Many tourist place for visit...Many holy place to visit...etc etc

A possible alternate for capital city. Better Medical education and health facilities, best drinking water supply, best land topography, well managed and planned city, better education, not very near the border, nearest sub-metro from kathmandu. Many tourist destinations:

The Food Basket of Nepal, the Medical City of Nepal, the educated city of Nepal! Better landforms! Advanced Facilities! 1 UNESCO's World Heritage Site (Chitwan National Park) is located here. And it's my birthplace and the place where I live now.

It's quiet a small city compared to others but probably the best in terms of facilities outside kathmandu. The life style seems a bit standard and the best city to live in nepal.

5 Lalitpur

Patan is the third largest city of Nepal after Kathmandu and Pokhara. This city is known for its tradition, heritage, architectural monument, Jatras and people they live in.

Lovely greenery environment, rich in culture, different kinds of culture heritage, friendly people, best place for trekking

19 Siddharthanagar (formerly Bhairahawa)

One of the major economic and trade centres of the country. The only international airport outside the capital is under construction in this rapidly growing city. The city has a lot of future prospects. Big companies and entrepreneurs are eyeing here to make huge investments. Experts have assumed that if the development here goes in the expected manner without any interruptions, the city might well even overtake Kathmandu in the upcoming one decade!

I was stationed there as member of USA Action Peace Corps, 1974-75. Mission was to feed people in manner acceptable to religious restrictions: raised Common and Chinese Carps in ponds dug or in fallow rice fields. Developed many successful projects in local area. Enjoyed friendly villagers and spectacular scenery. Area appears ripe for expansions in culture, society and business.

It is best to live with all the facilities and low population.
