Rickshaw Ride around Kathmandu Durbar Square
Discover Kathmandu like a local as you explore the city on a laid back rickshaw ride through the ancient city. You are for sure, to love this short trip as you visit the beautiful palaces, medieval temples, ancient markets, unique shops along with the traditional human settlements of the native people and witness their life style as your driver pedals through the old, narrow streets of Kathmandu. Rickshaws are an ideal 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. You shall start from the most colorful tourist hub i.e. Thamel and pass through Ason, the oldest and the busiest bazaar in the city that sells anything from dried buffalo meat to variety of spices, to electronics, textiles and many more and finally arrive at Durbar Square filled with centuries-old temples, palaces and shrines. On reaching there, you might hop off your rickshaw and stroll through the square, find a spot on a bench for sightseeing or hang out in hippie-era pie shops on Freak Street. Sip some warm tea or if you’re feeling bold, sample fiery rakshi (a local brew similar to sake) at any of the local food stalls or taverns (at your own expense). There’s never a dull moment in this area. After some quality time spent here, you hop back on the rickshaw for your return ride to Thamel.
