Discover the myriad sights, sounds and smells of nighttime Kathmandu on an evening rickshaw ride through the city for a truly special experience. 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 platform from which to do a spot of window-shopping 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!

You can even sip on some local chai, be bold and taste fiery rakshi (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 a cycle rickshaw for the return ride back to Thamel.

When packing be aware that dress standards are conservative throughout Asia, especially outside major cities. To respect this and for your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate. In many rural areas in Asia women will need to wear modest clothing even to swim. Singlets, tank tops and topless sun bathing are all unacceptable. When visiting religious sites men often need to wear long trousers and women a long skirt or sarong.

If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides a tip — though not compulsory — is appropriate.
