hey hjortur,

I think you should try to see the city from local perspective to experience authentic Kathmandu.

Experience local food, culture, traditions , festivals and lifestyles.
Kathmandu owes its name from Kasthamandap Temple(aka Pavilion of Wood), the oldest building in the entire valley, constructed around the 12th century.
So, don't forget to visit Patan Durbar Square.
Kathmandu is also surrunded by many Temples note Shree Pashupatinath Temple and Swayambhu.
If you want to see Kathmandu from the top of the hills don't forget to see White Gumba. People also say it is a Paradise on Earth. Situated at the top, white gumba is located at very beautiful place from where nice scenery of Kathmandu valley can be seen.
Enjoy your time.

To see authentic Kathmandu you can stay at Bhaktapur inside Bhaktapur Durbar Square which is dotted with budget hotels & nice restaurants. If you wish to stay inside Kathmandu then better book at Thamel area and explore restaurant. If looking for nice dinning then Garden Of Dreams can be your option. For live music, disco & all Thamel will be best option.
