Itinerary Information

Ten days hiking in Kathmandu’s region to discover and enjoy the best cultural and natural sites it has to offer.

So close to the city yet, the villages already resemble those in the Annapurna region. Ploughing is done with an ox plow and two animals led by a man. The harvested crop is carried by women from the fields to their homes.
From Nagarkot and Namo Buddha you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Himalyas.

Cultural visits of the most important sites of the valley ; Boudha’s Stupa, Bhaktapur part of the the UNESCO heritage sites, Namo Buddha’s monastery which welcomes monks and nuns for their retreats, and Patan’s lively streets.
