Best things to do in Kathmandu

Backstreet Academy recommends the best things to do in Kathmandu, outside of its main attractions, available only through its charming little backstreets. Here is our list of best tours and things to do in Kathmandu, ensuring you will get a meaningful travel experience whichever tour or activity in Kathmandu you might choose to take. 

Whether you choose to explore Kathmandu's street food with a local, carve stone with a local artisan, or even learn to cook Nepali momos and Dal Bhat in the friendly hospitality of a local in his warm home, Backstreet Academy ensures that you have the most unique and authentic experience that no one else will be able to replicate. Connecting with a local through experiencing his craft in an authentic location, that's priceless, as many of our customers have said, even when comparing us to all the big name Kathmandu attractions! But dont take our word for it, check out what they say on our tripadvisor page.
