This morning I went on the exiting and comprehensive walking tour of magical Kathmandu with eloquent and engaging local expert Shiva. This was the morning of wonderful discoveries of major attractions along with hidden places out of the beaten path that I would have never mastered to find on my own if not guided by Shiva.
Many thanks to Shiva whom Inhighly recommned!
Contact him the first thing once you are in Kathmandu and you will hit the ground running!

Himkala Adventure organizes Free Walking Tours around Kathmandu every day. It is a fantastic concept since it allows travellers to get an idea of the real Nepali people in their habitat. I found it really fascinating because not only is it free but it also takes you through the busy local markets, allowing interaction with the locals. If you are visiting Nepal for the first or even the 10th time, you will find that this trip is really informative and enjoyable for all, children and adults alike. There is an option for you to either walk all the way or take the bus. Shiva is very flexible with his timings. Would definitely recommend as a must-do activity if you wish to experience the real Nepali culture and everyday life.

I did a 15 days holiday in Nepal. First I experienced the Katmandu Walking Tour and I loved it, so I did two other tours more with Himkala Adventure during this time: A Day Hiking (Namobuddha Hiking, 2 days) and the Langtang Trek (6 days)
All of them were amazing experiences, Shiva takes care of everything so you can enjoy a high quality experience (hard to find in Nepal), with the proper accommodations, guides, meals and transports, so you dont have to worry about anything
It was a real great choice as he devotes himself to make you understand and learn the culture, history and way of living of the nepali people

A walking tour with Shiva was a great experience for me. He took us around the city of Kathmandu covering Thamel area, the Durbar Square (we didnt want to enter it) and Swayambhunath Temple. The tour was informative. Shiva is knowledgeable and has good English. After the tour, I decided to engage him as my tour guide for the rest of my trip (4 more days), which was also nice. Overall, Id recommend anyone visiting Kathmandu to do this tour with Shiva. Two thumbs up.

We had an amazing time with Shiva! Nepal would not have been the same without him as a guide. He is so knowledgeable and you feel safe and at ease when walking around Nepal with him. He took us everywhere we wanted to go and showed us so many amazing sites. We had such a good time that we hired him for a full day tour the next day!
