Marvel at the beautiful palaces, old towns, alleys, temples, ancient bazaars and local lifestyle as the rickshaw is pedaled through the old, narrow streets of Kathmandu. Rickshaws are a trendy mode of convenient and easy transportation for anyone who yearns to explore the tricky gullies spread across the Kathmandu Durbar Square and its nearby areas. Kathmandu Durbar Square is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The rickshaws will pick you up in Thamel to begin your ride through Kathmandu. Thamel is a popular tourist spot where you can see numerous shops especially running for selling goods to the tourists. You can also do some accessories, herbal teas or Pashmina and Cashmere shopping in Thamel as per your wish.
While you explore Kathmandu on a rickshaw, you will also pass through Ason. It is the busiest market (bazaar) in the city and sells anything. Be it dried meats or a variety of spices, masalas, electronics, and textiles and various other offerings required while worshipping the Gods and Goddesses.
The bazaar is also famous as it is one of the two legendary India-Tibet trade routes that pass through Kathmandu. As you continue your journey, you will also be visiting the Hanumandhoka Museum located in the Durbar Square. It highlights the life of King Tribhuvan (1906-1955) who abolished the Rana regime from the autocratic ruling.
Get off your rickshaw and enjoy strolling through the Durbar Square area. Find yourself a spot on a bench to observe the bustling crowd and activities of the local people. Or you can also hang out in one of the hippie-era pie shops on Freak Street. Sip some warm chai tea, coffee or, even sample fiery local brew (rakshi) at one of the local food stalls or nightspot at your own expense. There’s never a dull moment in this area.
Your trip will start from your hotel. Our tour guide will come to pick you up and take a rickshaw. You will be exploring a part of Kathmandu valley and at about 3 PM he will transfer you to your hotel.

Breath taking Thorong la pass trekking - I was looking forward for the trip as this is my 2nd time trekking through Himalayan mountains range. It was such a great experience. Long beautiful trek. Our group led... read more by our guide Sumir, which I found him such an experience guy with lots of resources. There were few hiccups and he handled it very well. He was ready with his plan A,B, ...etc to make sure that we can continue on with our journey and well taken care off. We are all happy that we made it. I must thank Sumir and his team, Dharma, Suntos and the rest for making our adventure memorable. Hope we meet again in my next adventure in Nepal. Well done guys👍👍👍
Annapurna Circuit trekking and birding experience - I joined the Annapurna Circuit trek guided by guide Sumir and his team of porters. They were amazing , friendly and very helpful. The trek is challenging and the mountain... read more view awesome. I am grateful to my guide and his team of porters helping me spotting birds along the way for my photography. Great experience with the team and most important of all, I feel safe with them guiding me through the journey.
Disappointed - I am posting this very late but I have just come across my previous communication with the company which reminded me that I had forgotten to review.
I did so... read more much research before our trip, we travel a lot and understand the importance of choosing the right company to make the experience perfect but also to ensure that the company support the local community. Kisan and the company had such good reviews and we're also personally recommended by a friend that we chose them.
Right up until the day before the trip Kisan said that he would be our guide, we looked forward to learning so much from him as such an experienced guide. At the last minute he was unable to take us and we were sent with another guide. The guide we were sent instead was very nice, he was pleasant and helpful but it quickly became clear that he lacked the confidence and experience to bring the trip alive for us. We saw other guides chatting with their clients and pointing out interesting things. Our guide spent most of the time just chatting in Nepali with the porter and playing music on their phones, he often ignored us for hours at a time. We tried to engage him in conversation, he would answer our questions but then go back to chatting with the porter.
We felt that we missed out on learning about Nepali culture and nature. We wanted to hear about the locals who greeted us and find out the history behind the villages we were passing through,we know how a good guide makes a trip. We suspected that he was more used to being a second guide or a porter rather than the main guide. When we got back to Kathmandu this was confirmed by a quick check on TripAdvisor in which our guide was mentioned several times as a secondary guide or porter but never as the main guide. I challenged this with the company, I didn't expect anything and knew it wouldn't change anything but hoped they would perhaps just apologise and learn from my feedback. Messages went back and forth in which I was told he was a qualified guide, I asked several times how much experience he'd had but the question was avoided. This reaction was really disappointing, after a long exchange of messages I got some kind of apology but it was really too late and left a sour taste to be honest.
I'm sure that with one of the more experienced guides we would have had a different experience, as most other customers have, but we can only go on our experience. These types of holidays are once in a lifetime and I'm afraid that we felt that ours was a bit of a missed opportunity to be blown away by the beauty and culture.
Very refreshed trek after COVID-19 - This trip is the best trek i have ever done.The trekking guide was very helpful and informative.He gave us brief description about the location its speciality.I fully enjoyed it... read more and would like to highly recommend this trip and specially this company.
It's those pinch-me im dreaming moments that i'll remember forever. My Annapurna Tho rong La pass trekking experiences are certainly unforgettable.
