The Kathmandu Urban Marathon is held every year on April 25th to commemorate the devastating earthquake of 2015. Participants of this marathon will contribute towards rebuilding and educational projects for the adults of the future!
The marathon route takes you to most of the spectacular sights of Kathmandu, some are still damaged as result of the earthquake but still worth seeing. You will pass Durbar Square in Patan, the center of Kathmandu and Swayambhunath also known as the Monkey temple because of all the monkeys that live there. You will cross Boudhanath and see Pashupatinath where the Nepali people hold cremations in the open air. The ashes are spread in the holy Bagmati river which you will also cross.
