3. Mirror Maze

The mirror maze is a unique concept offering entertainment packages in the Kathmandu Valley. The mirror maze location is not in Kathmandu but near its neighbour, Lalitpur. While it may not be in the capital, it is worth a little commute to get this one-of-a-kind experience.

Mirror Maze - Lalitpur


The mirror maze features a labyrinth; the only twist is that it’s full of mirrors. Yes, from right to left, the walls are replaced by mirrors making your escape even more difficult.
