From the cultural splendor of the Kathmandu Valley’s historic towns to the stunning mountain views outside the cities, this tour shows two contrasting but equally fascinating sides of Nepal.
Starting from Kathmandu, we will explore the most significant cultural and religious sites found in Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur, the three former royal towns of the Kathmandu Valley. We break up the cultural sight-seeing with a trip into the Himalayan foothills to the town of Nagarkot, renowned for its spectacular sunrise and sunset views of snow-covered peaks, including Everest. This is a wonderful trip that brings to life the Kathmandu Valley’s rich history and culture while also letting you sample its great natural beauty.

Everything was great. Loved seeing the mountains! The trek was terrific. Really liked Bandipur and the tour of Durbar Squares in Katahmandu, Patan & Bhaktapur.
Everything was taken care of from the moment we were met by Sanjeev onward.
Pasang Sherpa was terrific. He kept the pace slow in the trek and had the most interesting stories of his mountaineering expeditions.
