At 1400 meters above sea level in the bowl-shaped Kathmandu Valley, Nepal’s capital is a great place for running. According to legend, Buddhist Saint Manjushree created the valley by slashing a passage through the surrounding hills, draining out the primordial waters and making it habitable. Over the centuries, a refined urban civilisation emerged, built on a unique synthesis of Hinduism and Buddhism. Dynasties came and went. Trade and the arts flourished.
Its deeply religious Newar inhabitants built fabulous cities and artistic temples that attracted devout pilgrims as well as rampaging invaders. In the late 18th century, following the founding of modern Nepal within more or less the present boundaries, Kathmandu was made the capital. On our running tours in Kathmandu, your local guide will take you through the city’s history and show you what makes the locals tick today.
The political, commercial and cultural hub of Nepal is the first stop for the majority of visitors to the country. Once a separate kingdom in itself, it contains three fabled cities: Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. Kathmandu Valley is home to seven of Nepal’s ten World Heritage Sites — a real feast of culture and history.
So why rely on guidebooks when you can get a friendly local to show you their city? Get a great workout as you see the city with our running tours in Kathmandu.
