Welcome To My Yard’s City Walk

Amongst these bustling lanes lies the real magic of Kathmandu and a walk with a difference.

Come on a City Walk with us to discover stories of Gods and Goddesses, Kings, ceremonies and rituals, the shop keepers, musicians and the beautifully diverse communities whose thousands of tales are woven into the fabric of this incredible maze of houses, shops, temples and markets.

Welcome To My Yard’s City Walk is an exciting ‘not for profit’ city tour where you will experience the history, culture and communities of ancient & modern Nepal. You will also hear about our skills training programme for the street young people you are supporting simply by walking with us.

Take part in this amazing City Walk and you will also be donating to a great cause.

Experience the culture and communities of ancient and modern Kathmandu as we weave through the hustle and bustle in the backstreets of Thamel.
