Around Kathmandu Valley

8 Day/s Hiking in Nepal

The hills surrounding Kathmandu valley offers an excellent opportunity for easy hiking and to observe village life, plus superb mountain views without having to go too far or climb too high. Beautiful verdant hills and traditional Newari villages encircle the valley of Kathmandu. Despite the city's urban life being just a drive away, the villages remain untouched by modernity and have retained their old world charm. We hike around hills and villages covered by terraced farms, verdant forests and shrines dedicated to Hindu & Buddhist deities. This hike is for every group and for all seasons.
