Full description
On this special 3-hour guided walk in Kathmandu you’ll learn about the Hindu Living Goddess, one of the most fascinating aspects of Nepali culture. Your expert guide will take you on one of the Kumari routes, and you’ll be immersed in the sights and sounds of Kathmandu.

The Hindu goddess, born to Buddhist parents, is a young girl who is considered sacred as long as she has not reached menstruation. Every year, the Kumari makes just 3 public appearances, during which she is carried through the streets by a large chariot to ensure that she is not harmed.

You’ll follow one of the routes, heading south from Kathmandu’s Durbar Square, where her palace is located. The walk is a great opportunity to explore this culturally rich area, guided by an expert in the traditions of the Kumari Goddess.
