Around Kathmandu Valley

If you just arrived in Nepal or if you have a couple of down days before departing on your next adventure let us show you around the city of Kathmandu. Don’t try to brave the city by yourself and get lost in the maze of streets, people, vendors and markets; Let us take you on a site seeing tour of Kathmandu where you will get to experience all of the magic that this city has to offer. Tour the oldest Buddhist stupa in the world, Syambhunath (justly nicknamed the Monkey Temple); go shopping in some of the hard to find local markets; learn about the fascinating history of this city; and feel the power of local stupas being dimly lit by oil lamps as the sun sets. Let us show you the experience of real Kathmandu.

Alternatively, if you are tired of the big city life and want to escape into the mountains but do not have time for an extended trip before departing from Kathmandu; talk to us about exploring Shivapuri National Park and Nagarjun Nature Reserve. Only a short bus ride from our hotel we can take you on a day hike to the Buddhist stupa where you can look down on the entire Kathmandu valley. Or if you prefer a little more adrenaline we can take you on a mountain bike tour around the park.

And you thought you had to get out of Kathmandu to experience the true Nepal!
