Our tefl/tesol course in Nepal is situated in the capital city of Kathmandu. This city is the largest and most stylish in Nepal and is home to half a million friendly and welcoming people. Within Kathmandu you will find many ethnicities, including the Newars who are Nepal’s world famous craftsmen and traders. For more than a millennium Nepal has controlled the vital trade route between India and Tibet and this is one reason why this fabulous country has become a popular tourist destination.
According to ancient folklore, Kathmandu was built in the shape of the khukuri knife which is a traditional weapon and tool famously used by the fearless Gurkha warriors. Durbar Square, situated at the ‘handle of the knife’, is a continuous carnival surrounded by temples, monuments and the Royal Palace. The oldest areas of the city stretch northeast and southwest from here. There are two areas in the centre of Kathmandu where you will find inexpensive hotels, north of Dunbar Square is the area of Thamel and south of the square is the area of Jhochhen (also called Freak Street!).
The suburban area of Kathmandu is mainly situated east of Kantipath, the principle north-south conduit that runs through the city and is recognised by its landmarks, particularly the Tundikhel or parade ground and the Royal Palace. The area of Durbar Marg, a wide, main street stretching south of the palace gates is the main location for the city’s premium restaurants, hotels and airline offices. One of Kathmandu’s other sights to look out for is the Temple of Swayambhu which is situated on the top of a hill, west of the Bishnumati River and can be easily climbed on foot.Apply now & get certified to teach english abroad!
