Home to a multitude of unique ethnicities, religions, languages, customs, costumes, and festivals, Nepal is culturally rich. Adventure Club Trek’s Kathmandu Cultural Tour-2 days introduces you to the lifestyle, religion, and culture of the different groups of Nepal as Kathmandu is home to Nepalese from all corners of the country. You will get acquainted with the city’s rich history and explore the unique architectural style of the two medieval cities, Kathmandu and Bhaktapur. The Kathmandu Valley is made up of three cities-Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan/Lalitpur.
Walk along the cobblestone paved roads of the Kathmandu Durbar Square as you explore the palaces of the Malla and Shah dynasty and the many temple complexes and monuments inside these palaces. Get to know more about the Buddhist culture as you make your way to the Boudhanath Stupa, one of world’s largest, and Swayambhunath Temple. The temple of Pashupatinath is the center of Hindu culture. You can pick a corner and observe the daily life of Kathmandu at Ason where you can see local vendors, their customers, passersby, animals, and vehicles add beauty to chaos surrounded by centuries-old temples and houses. Ason market is in close proximity to Kathmandu Durbar Square and Thamel.
Thamel is the ultimate tourist hub with bustling souvenir shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, hotels, vendors selling trekking gears and quaint alleyways. Enjoy strolling through the streets of Thamel in the evening. For those seeking a longer introduction to Nepalese culture, Adventure Trek Club also provides Nepal Explore tour-15 days, and Kathmandu and Pokhara Tour-7 Days packages.
Birendra, the man who helped us on every aspect of our journey, was so great! He and his crew helped us with literally everything, from the airport, finding a hotel, making our plan, to taking the actual journey. He is very knowledgeable, super friendly and made us feel right at home.
I recommend Adventure Club Treks fully I Will see you next year on our third trip to Nepal!
I came to volunteer in a small village and I only had a short amount of sightseeing time. Birendra arranged a wonderful tour for me. I had a marvelous young man for a Guide. He took me around and showed me the sites of Kathmandu, he was very knowledgeable, and he never rushed me. Not only did we talk about the historical aspects of the city, but the cultural ones as well. Our driver was very reliable and I requested him the next day when I went to Nagarkot. The car was very comfortable and the ride very pleasant. I felt safe and secure. The weather did not cooperate as well as I would've liked and the mountains were very hazy. Still, I did get to see them and the sunrise was magnificent. Birendra was prompt…, More prompt than I, and very patient. He was completely reliable. I loved Nepal and would really like to go back. I would definitely contact Birendra again to arrange my travel.
Birendra may be one of the best guides to get you al around nepal in comfort, efficiency, and good company. Highly recommended!

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
