Kathmandu Valley Trek provides you the opportunity to enjoy the panoramic views of snow-capped peaks, explore the cultural richness and natural diversity, and experience the sense of adventure without going far too quickly from the Kathmandu valley. For the trekkers and explorers who shy from ascending to a higher altitude and traveling to remote destinations for wilderness and scenery, Kathmandu Valley Trek is a perfect option. In this adventure outside the urban sprawl of this valley listed in UNESCO World Heritage Site List, you can have panoramic views of Himalayas (from Everest and Numbur Peaks in the east to the Annapurna and Manaslu in the west), diverse flora and fauna, historical and religious sites, heritages with excellent architecture and raw natural wilderness. Kathmandu Valley Trek is one of it’s kinds.

Kathmandu Valley Trek begins the exotic adventure in the rim of Kathmandu valley with an exploration of the heritage within the Kathmandu city. From the religious heritages of Pashupatinath Temple, Swoyambhunath (the Monkey Temple) and Boudhanath Stupa to the royal palaces, temples, museums and intricate architecture of the Durbar Squares, Kathmandu valley has a lot to boast of. Ahead in our adventure, we shall begin the exploration of surrounding destinations with the traverse through the Shivapuri National Park and explore its rich biodiversity from the trail head of Sundarijal and head to Chisapani. Leaving this beautiful settlement with the view of wide stretched mountains, next day we continue to Nagarkot, the most popular hilltop around Kathmandu with incredible sunrise and sunset view, and a delightful panorama of Himalayas. We then explore the lush terrains, rural settlements with ochre thatched farmhouses, thick forest with colorful rhododendron, magnolia and Sal trees, bird watching spots, ancient temples and monasteries as we traverse through the settlements of Namobuddha, Balthali, and Dhulikhel. Completing this circuit at Panauti, we drive back to Kathmandu and call it a day. From the coexistence of tradition and modernity in Kathmandu to typical Nepalese countryside in Balthali and Panauti, Kathmandu Valley Trek provides you contrast and diversity.

Kathmandu Valley Trek is a short and easy trekking experience without ascent to high altitude until about 2500m and thereby almost nil chances of altitude sickness for you. Trekkers like you are required to have average fitness level and a passion to explore the unknown for better enjoyment. For the best of this trekking trail, you are advised to embark on this journey in the months of February to March and from October to December. Contact soon to Himalayan Holyland Treks and Expedition to get the best experience of Kathmandu Valley Trek.
