Streets of Silver, Streets of Gold
Ten easy walks among the Gods, Legends and Bazaars of Kathmandu
John Child's book of walks in the old cities of the Kathmandu Valley is much more than a description of the millennia of history and culture in Kathmandu, and much more comprehensive than a sightseeing guide. Child uses the format of a walking tour to tell the rich story of Nepal's high culture, weaving stories of the monuments and palaces together with history, myth and legend. It's as suitable for armchair travelers as for trekkers, visitors and residents of Kathmandu. Publication date: December 2006
