Discover authentic Kathmandu on an evening cycle rickshaw ride through town. Start in the colorful tourist hub of Thamel and head towards Durbar Square. Pass by buzzing night bazaars and through lively market squares. Sit back and be enchanted as silhouetted temples take on timeless hues as the sun sinks. This Kathmandu tour will not easily be forgotten.

As the sun goes down, discover the myriad sights, sounds and smells of night time Kathmandu on an evening rickshaw ride through the city. Sit back and relax as your cycle rickshaw is expertly navigated through the buzzing backstreets and atmospheric laneways of this energetic place.

Start the adventure in the touristic heart of the city, Thamel. The streets here are lined with shops selling everything from pastries to pashminas and your rickshaw seat provides the perfect spot to window-shop along the way. Soak up the hive of activity taking place as you zip through this popular part of town.

Leaving Thamel behind, head towards Durbar Square. Be sure to keep an eye out en route for many of the bustling local markets including Asan, a vegetable and spice market. This is also the oldest market square in all of Kathmandu.

Continue on to Durbar Square filled with age-old temples, palaces and shrines that are bound to enchant. Why not park yourself in one of the temple squares to witness the world go by? A truly special experience! Or perhaps sip on some local Chai, be bold and taste fiery Rakshi (a local brew) at one of the local stalls or taverns, or simply hang out in one of the hippie era pie shops on Freak Street. It will never be a dull moment here.

After the sights and sounds of this magical place have been absorbed, climb up onto your 'street helicopter' (Cycle Rickshaw) for the return ride back to Thamel. By the end of the tour you'll be sure to agree that getting around the city on a rickshaw, through its backstreets and laneways, is one of the best ways to discover authentic Kathmandu. Come and be entranced!
