More About This Experience

So you're the type who needs a good breakfast to get the day started eh? Well, you've come to the right place. As this boisterous city awakes at the break of dawn, we will skillfully navigate through narrow alleyways, temples and crowded bazaars to find you that perfect cup of chia (nepali tea) and Nepali breakfast wonders! Before the crazy Kathmandu honky-traffic kicks up dust clouds, before the resident cows begin their tour of the city and before roadside touts begin their day, we'll start the tour at 7am through the meandering alleys of Thamel and wind up in the ancient Durbar Square of Basantapur. Along the way we will also visit ancient temples and shrines where you can partake in some of the morning rituals of the locals like feeding pigeons, lighting butter lamps and even make offerings to the gods. If you're wondering whether momos and dal bhat are part of this tour, we'll have to disappoint you as Kathmanduites have a something else in store for you. Here are some of the food items you will sample on this tour: 1. Sel Roti (Nepali doughnut) 2. Malpuwa 3. Aloo Puri set 4. Gwara Mari 5. Haluwa 6. As many cups of chia as you can drink ;) Bet you've never heard of these dishes before, and for good reason, as these dishes are rarely sold outside morning hours and even if you do find them it's probably not as fresh. If you have children under the age of 12, then please select the add-ons below for discounted price. For children under or equal to the age of 5 it is free. Please note that if you have selected an add on for pick up then we use local taxis.

Loved my guide, Aayam! He made great conversation and gave me what felt like a more authentic experience. He even cleaned the pigeon poo out of my hair. Ha!

It was awesome to see Kathmandu in the early morning. All the food we had disappeared later in the day so it was special to sit around with the locals on the street and enjoy delicious food. I don’t even like tea but the chai we had from a street stall was amazing! I haven’t been able to find it that good again the rest of my time here.
