Where was Doctor Strange filmed?

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the mysterious sorcerer, this new Marvel film will take Dr. Stephen Strange to the lands of the Kathmandu Valley to find a wizard, who can help him recovering from a car accident. Here he will be introduced to sorcery and mysticism by The Ancient One.

Doctor Strange has been filmed on location in Nepal, shortly after the catastrophic earthquake of 2015. The movie also takes place in England, Hong Kong and in the United States:

Doctor Strange Kathmandu
In this promotional image, Cumberbatch is standing near monuments of the popular and central Patan Durbar Square in Kathmandu. The area was damaged by the 2015 earthquake, and the team was filming the movie just a few months after the tragedy. Probably the scene was made with the help of some CGI, although the Krishna Mandir temple (in the front) and the tower in the background have survived the disaster.

Doctor Strange filming New York
The movie gets a bit trippy, with scenes like this one that reminds us the induced dreams of Inception (2010).
Filming in New York took place near Manhattan in Hell's Kitchen neighborhood and Flatiron District.
