Trip Descriptions

A Walk to Remember: Kathmandu Valley Cultural and Nature Tour– move footloose and fancy free…you’re born free, as free as the wind blows…

We explore the heavily vibrant, howling souks of this ancient city, where the olden and the modern battle it out for survival, both separated by a thin red line. City dwellers, young and old, hit temple bells rusted with time which ring the whole day and late into the night, calling on the gods to hear their pleas and petitions and medieval towns that include Patan and Bhaktapur and the famous stupa at Bodhnath where many Tibetans live and find solace attract curious visitors in hordes. After waltzing through this literal museum of culture, heritage and history that we all know as a gripping ‘Katmandu’’ [ancient name Kasthamandap] We drive down to the serene Balthali Village Resort on the rims of the Kathmandu Valley where we could enjoy some day hikes in the gentle wild with heart warming sunset views of the Himalaya. And we can wrap up our trip with a mind blowing Everest Mountain Flight at the beginning of our trip or on day 4 at an extra cost that’s soft on the pockets, and you will have enjoyed a vacation that can become a story for the loved ones at home, with nostalgic captivating pictures donning the walls of that intimate place we all call ‘home sweet home’’.

If you come to Nepal and have a flexible schedule, then take the time to visit these places.  Nepal always has something to offer its guests.  During the peak season (October to December) and (mid of February to May), the stunning panorama of the Himalayas is at its crisp-beautiful-best, but there is really no season in which Nepal is not a beautiful or pleasant place to visit.
