New age travellers listen up. There is a whole new side to Kathmandu that awaits discovery. And much has been happening in this Himalayan city which has witnessed the devastation wrought on Nepal with the great earthquake in 2015. What’s interesting is its comeback recovery which has beautifully transformed the face of its art and culture. It’s not just the Malla-era old Nepali art that defines the Nepalese Renaissance age, it’s the contemporary street art scene which is making heads turn on the streets of Kathmandu now. Discover the background to this relatively new movement of artistic expression and the stories behind the artists and their street art. Accompanied by an expert whilst travelling on-board a vintage Vespa through Kathmandu you will find that urban streetscapes are the new canvases, and artists are writing exciting stories with their paintbrushes, in projects such as Kolor Kathmandu and Prasad. The expert facilitator will tell you everything you need to know about street art in Kathmandu. In true Nepali -style you will stop for tea and a snack along the way and of course, you will be taken through the back streets and past ‘real-life’ Kathmandu. Another major highpoint of the tour that it is organised not on a bicycle or a bike but scooters – the vintage Vespa
On face value, Kathmandu is a bustling city of colours, sights and smells. Take a trip past what you already know about Kathmandu and delve into its world of contemporary street art! Were you even aware that there is a thriving street art scene in Kathmandu? That you will find everything from graffiti to organized community art events to city-wide art projects. On this tour, you will discover how this relatively new movement got started. It’s all there for everyone to see, but not necessarily easy to find, so join us on our speedy Vespas around the city and uncover the stories of the artists and their art.
