What You Can Expect

Kathmandu Evening Tour by Rickshaw Including Durbar Square

Kathmandu at Night

Get a true local’s perspective on Kathmandu during this 2- to 3-hour guided tour by rickshaw through the vibrant streets of this colorful Nepalese capital. It’s the perfect chance to take in the explosion of sights, sounds and smells that characterize this fascinating urban area at at a laid back pace.

Start your trip in the evening in the tourist district of Thamel, where you’ll meet up with your driver and guide for the trip. Climb aboard your personal rickshaw, and set off, as your driver deftly winds his way through the labyrinthine streets of Kathmandu and through throngs of pedestrians. As you pedal take time to observe the area’s range of local storefronts, hawking everything from scarves to sweet baked goods. Your elevated rickshaw seat provides just the right angle of view to observe the hustle and bustle down below.

Travel by rickshaw past Asan, the oldest food market in Kathmandu, specializing in spices and vegetables, before arriving at the ancient shrines, temples and palaces of Durbar Square. Then a break from your rickshaw ride to stroll through this centuries-old area on foot. Grab a seat on a bench for some quality people-watching, or relive the hippie heyday of the 1960s on Freak Street inside the various pie shops lining the area. If you’re feeling thirsty, warm yourself up with a cup of chai tea, or take things up a notch with a belly-warming glass of rakshi (a local Nepalase drink similar to sake) from a local food vendor or pub.

At the end of your exploration of Durbar Square, hop back aboard your rickshaw, winding once again through the cacophony of vendors, motorbikes and rickshaw horns, as you make your way back to your original departure point.

It was OK. As it was night and we had ypto make our way back to our hotel after and the lighting is not so good in Katmandu our guide organized for rickshaw rider to take us back. Make sure you agree to a price before you depart otherwise you will get ripped off.
