except Kathmandu, all of the other places of Nepal are far less polluted!

@Mr. Kathmandu, How is zimsmom's irrational? It is not like he is referring to the whole country. He has explicitly mentioned the word "city". By the way, he is right.
And, why would one go to other "cities" in Nepal when his/her business in Kathmandu?
#Mr. Kathmandu on Apr 25, 2016 :
@zimsmom, It seems you have not been to any other cities than Kathmandu and your comment is irrational and insane.

If you leave Kathmandu City.Other city and all Nepal has good rank against pollution. Kathmandu's air pollution is beyond the point of acceptance at dry season (Nov-FEB), If you move in any direction (E-W-S-N) in any season from Kathmandu valley you will get really good environment. 39.6 % (2012) of the total land area is covered by forest resource makes this country as a green garden. you will able to see magnificent mountain ranges, great waterfalls in the northern part of countryside.
