Great Experience Trekking Near Kathmandu!

12th March, 2018

Me and my friend Rob had a wonderful day trekking and visiting some locations near Kathmandu. We left in the early hours of the morning to catch the sun rising at Nagarkot Hill, which was a beautiful sight to behold. We then hiked the surrounding valley and eventually Dev, our great guide, took us to the Namobuddha Monastery for a look around. Dev was helpful, knowledgeable, humourous, and made sure our experience went without any issues. Highly recommended, hoping to reconnect on my new trip :)

Great Experience Trekking Near Kathmandu!

12th March, 2018

Me and my friend Rob had a wonderful day trekking and visiting some locations near Kathmandu. We left in the early hours of the morning to catch the sun rising at Nagarkot Hill, which was a beautiful sight to behold. We then hiked the surrounding valley and eventually Dev, our great guide, took us to the Namobuddha Monastery for a look around. Dev was helpful, knowledgeable, humourous, and made sure our experience went without any issues. Highly recommended, hoping to reconnect on my new trip :)
