Marvel at the beautiful palaces, temples, ancient bazaars and local lifestyle as your driver pedals through the old, narrow streets of Kathmandu. Rickshaws are a popular mode of transportation for anyone who wishes to explore the intricate gullies spread across the Kathmandu Durbar Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its nearby areas. While exploring Kathmandu on a rickshaw we also pass through Ason, the busiest bazaar in the city that sells anything from dried buffalo meat to a variety of spices, electronics and textiles. The bazaar is also one of the two legendary India-Tibet trade routes that pass through Kathmandu. A part of this journey also includes visiting the Hanumandhoka Museum located in the durbar square which highlights the life of King Tribhuvan (1906-1955) who helped free the country from the Rana regime.
Join us for a rickshaw tour if you wish to savor foreign history and cultural traditions in a ride that is as much a part of a tradition as the places you visit and the lifestyle you will admire.
