Kathmandu Valley Hiking Tour
The Kathmandu Valley has many enjoyable day hikes or mini- treks that offer the rewards if wandering further afield serenity, an introduction to Nepalese hill life and dramatic mountain views. A Schneider valley map is helpful for navigating the trails and hills that ring the perimeter of the valley. A guide can be valuable where trails evaporate or multiply, and you may consider porters if you want to hike without gear on your back.
Nagarkot is a good place to begin several days or a longer hiking. Clings to a 1985metere hilltop, far removed from nois and traffic pollution. A one – hour drive up the winding road from bhaktapur greets the fresh hill breezes and valley views east and west, eclipsed by one of the best close- range Himalayan vantage points from anywhere on the Kathmandu Valley.
