Kathmandu - safe or not.

Wondering about safety for travellers in Kathmandu and Nepal. We are booked to arrive early June for 2 weeks and plan to tour with a private guide. We have been watching the unrest on the news.

I totally agree with the previous post. I was there just last weekend and it was my first time in Kathmandu. We walked from Durbar Square to Thamel through Indira Chowk and lots of small lanes and I felt really safe, no threat whatsoever. Maybe just some curious stares, that's all. A great smile helps a lot : )

I totally agree with the previous post about attitude because I met some really funny traveller/tourist/etc. I was there just last weekend and it was my first time in Kathmandu.
