Trip Overview

Are you a photographer looking for a short photo tour far from your home country? Pack your bags and take an insightful tour of the historical land of Kathmandu valley.

Regarded as the “Land of Gods,” Kathmandu is a melting pot of cultures, lifestyles, religions, and communities. Kathmandu valley comprises three districts which were historically all different empires. You can find different shades of history and culture in almost every corner of the streets.

Kathmandu Photography Tour combines some of the best photogenic locations around the valley. In this tour, you’ll be exploring seven cultural monuments enlisted in the UNESCO Heritage Sites. Along with that, this tour takes you to a popular hill station of Nagarkot and two of the most traditional Newari towns — Khokana and Bungmati. You’ll be walking around some ancient temples, stupas, royal palaces, and rustic villages.

Highlights of Kathmandu Photography Tour

  • Visit the 7 UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Nepal
  • Dive deeper into the hub of ancient arts, language, and vivid culture of the capital Kathmandu and its neighboring towns
  • Enjoy the marvelous sunrise and mountain panorama from Nagarkot
  • Explore the ancient Newari town of Khokana and Bungmati
  • Understand the culture, tradition, and way of life of the local people
  • Photograph some of the world’s most spectacular destinations
  • Learn the foundation of photography and develop your unique style

Although we’ll have group discussions and presentations, it is not a typical photography workshop. Rather, it is a visual journey where you get to understand the foundation for photography and develop your own style, all while learning about the city.

Note: While photographing people in the street, it is better to take permission beforehand. Although most people in Nepal do not mind being photographed, it adds the right gesture and a sense of professionalism.

We had an unbelievable adventure completing the Mardi Himal Trek in January 2023. Our guide Rajendra (Raj), and porter Rajesh  were professional, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable about not only the trek we were on but about many others in the area.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.

I completed the 14 day Annapurna Circuit early December 2022, thank you so much to Surya and Rabin, who both went out of their way to make this trip, that I'd been planning so long,and  memorable. They were always checking in with me during the hike

We completed the 15-day Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team in late November 2022.

The scenery of the Manaslu region is stunning and far more beautiful than we had imagined. The weather was excellent!
