Katmandu is a city in Nepal. Seger wrote this song in a humorous tone about his desire to disappear for a while after dealing with constant touring and record company politics. Katmandu is used to represent a place far away where no one will bother you.
This is one of the highlights of Seger's Live Bullet album, which was released the following year. Known for powerful concert performances, Seger's career took off after the album was released.
In the movie Mask, starring Cher and Sam Elliott, Eric Stoltz' character dreams of going to Katmandu with his good friend.
This was used in the movie Last Fling, with John Ritter and Connie Selecca. (thanks, Lewis, for above 2)
