      I was in Nepal for a short while for work, and during that short time, I had wanted to look at the cultural sites the city had. For that, I had contacted Nepal Hiking Team to see if they had the option of arranging short trips like I wanted. And, sure enough, they did. Not only that, they made sure I got the most for my experience as well. We started off with cultural sites around the valley that were listed on the UNESCO list. First was the excursion to the temple of Pashupatinath. Looking at the temples and the people gathered there, it was very enjoyable. Visiting the Bouddhanath Stupa, I rotated the prayer circles and sat and observed the religious atmosphere of the stupa. It was serene and lovely. The guide who was assigned to me seems to know a whole lot about the destinations and told me stories and history of the places. For a short trip of the destinations, I sure did end up learning and knowing a whole lot. Because of this, I really appreciate the services of Nepal Hiking Team. They truly outdid themselves at a short trip around the valley. This excursion to destinations and cultural sites made my short trip at Nepal a lot more than what I was expecting from a short conference for my work. The country is really beautiful, and even though the city is loud and crowded at times, the historical sites and cultural destinations must be well-preserved. After all, the excursion to these sites should be done by all. Nepal Hiking Team is a good travel agency who delivered on their service. For this, I now have a good impression of them and would definitely choose NHT for further travel needs of mine.
