What you will experience

The walk is designed to showcase Kathmandu’s incredible cultural diversity and religious history and to lift the veil of mystery and offer insights into important historical and cultural events that have made the city what it is today. Our walking tour is much more than a slow walk through a bustling city, it is an opportunity to look, to listen, to learn and to feel something new.   The back streets by their nature are a constantly changing tapestry and Old Kathmandu holds the promise of many treasures, be it the traditional shops of great antiquity or the religious monuments, all to woven into one enchanting narrative by our tour guide. A bonus is the food tasting you will indulge in along the way during the walk. We will stop at a local tea stall for a bit of tea tasting; next, we pop into a spice shop and soak in its aromatic offerings. At another spot, we will tuck into a yummy samosa, a hot favourite amongst street food delights. Along the way, we will stop and feed the pigeons for some Karma merit boosting points. We will discover also a hidden temple, a place of falling fish and excitingly straddle the departure point of the ancient Tibetan caravan route. A thrilling rickshaw ride transports us back to Thamel.
