Kathmandu Valley Trekking

Kathmandu Valley is considered the gateway to the Nepalese Himalayas and home to several World Heritage Sites. Kathmandu valley trekking is a beautiful trekking route around the Kathmandu Valley. We explore almost all tourist destinations near  Kathmandu and mountain views staying very close to the city. Kathmandu Valley trekking is suitable for travelers who have a very limited holiday as well as suitable for all age groups.

We start our journey from Sundarijal, Chisapani, Nagarkot, Dhulikhel, and Balthali. We also visit the Namo-Buddha and Panauti. Besides the beautiful trekking, we also get a chance to observe the typical cultural and historical environment.

Early in the morning, we can see a beautiful sunrise view from Nagarkot Hill station. This is the most fascinating and mesmerizing view of our lifetime. After Nagarkot, we start our trek towards Dhulikhel.  The trek offers an excellent view of the green rice paddy terraces and typical style of houses which make our journey more enjoyable. The main attractions of this hike are the fantastic panoramic mountain views and the many Buddhist stupas on the hilltops. Namo Budhha is also famous for growing rice, mustard, and millet so you can see beautiful hillside terraced farms throughout the walk. 

Panauti and Namo-Buddha are rich in their own traditional historical and cultural value. While trekking we get a chance to see beautiful mountain views that include: Mt. Manaslu 8163m, Mt. Langtang Lirung 7246m, Mt. Ganesh Himal 7604m, Mt. Dorje Lakpa 6988m, Mt. Gauri Shankar 7145m & Tibetan Himalayan range.
