Trip Overview

Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal in itself is a city of wonders! The chaotic streets, crowds, people and narrow streets in the city will frighten you for a while but soon you will know that it is how life goes in here. The temples, stupas and other religious spots that you will encounter at each corner of every street will let you know why Kathmandu is called the city of temples. Amidst the crowded city lies an artistic palace built in ancient reign of Malla kings which is a must visit place of Kathmandu City Tour. Lying in the heart of Kathmandu city, the palace is a true demonstration of fine art, culture, architecture and designs. The beautifully sculptured designs in the stones, buildings, temples, pillars and windows are a true inspiration.

Kathmandu City Tour shares all the specialties of Kathmandu city with you; mainly the UNESCO listed heritage sites namely Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath stupa, Pashupatinath temple, Boudhanath stupa, Bhaktapur Durbar Square and Patan Durbar Square.  Swayambhunath stupa is a popular site for all the Buddhist pilgrims. Covering a large area, Swayambhunath consists of large Buddha statues, monasteries and the main part is a white dome and golden spire placed upon it that lies on a top of the hill. From the top, you can view whole Kathmandu city at once. Being a home to many monkeys, the stupa is also known as a monkey temple. Boudhanath stupa is another attraction that has similar white dome and golden spire like of Swayambhunath, however, the stupa of Boudhanath is considered as the largest stupa in the world. Similarly, Pashupatinath temple is the oldest temple of Lord Shiva that holds high value amongst the Hindu pilgrims.

Next on charts is Bhaktapur Durbar square which is also a grand palace built by Malla kings during their reign. The major attraction is the durbar square consists of fifty five windows palace, golden gate, Taleju temple, Nyatapol temple, national art gallery and many more. Moving on to next Durbar Square is Patan Durbar Square. The golden gate, the golden window, Taleju temple, Krishna Mandir, Bhangalamukhi temple and Sundari chowk are the major attractions here.

Apart from these UNESCO listed sites, magnificence of Himalayas is an important view that is not to be missed when it comes to your visit in Nepal. Therefore, Kathmandu valley city tour takes you to Nagarkot, a popular vantage point near Kathmandu for mountain views. Get the panoramic views of mountains like Annapurna range, Langtang range, Dhaulagiri Himal, Gaurishankar Himal, Ganesh Himal, etc. on a clear day as you stand tall on the view tower. Endeavour this awesome blend of culture and nature with Nepal hiking Team!

Reviews

Bogdan Ilie, USA My wife and I were lucky to have chosen Nepal Hiking Team to plan our trip. We opted for a private guide and had a porter as well. We waited at the airport, and we were dropped off there as well when we left Nepal. Our guide, Ram, made sure that our trip was organized flawlessly and that we were doing well and happy at all times. He chose the best available teahouses, and we were allowed to chose the food from the menu in all of them (there seem to be agencies that say you can either choose dal bhat or pay out of pocket). We were even served, during dinner, sliced apples carried by the porter. Ram was very knowledgeable, and he shared information related to mountain peaks, vegetation, and animals. As we saw, his English skills are excellent. Above all, he is friendly and has a positive attitude, so we enjoyed talking and interacting with him. The porter, Bhola, was also very friendly. He looked like he was 50 kg but carried 55-65 kg easily. Overall, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience to which Ram, Bhola, and Nepal Hiking Team contributed substantially. One of the owners, Ganga, even offered free rides to do the PCR tests or other purposes. We couldn't have hoped for better treatment from this agency.

Lucie H, UK In May this year - some friends and I joined the NHT For 16 days. Every fine detail was considered, with our guides and porters going above & beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Their knowledge and experience created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us all. I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Hiking Team to anyone! They made this experience perfect, thank you, guys.  
Mike, USA I went with my girlfriend to the Everest Base Camp with a guide and porter from Nepal Hiking Team. Right from the pick-up from the airport, we felt like valued clients, and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed in an otherwise hectic city. From the moment the trek started, our guide Bheg ensured we were comfortable and constantly checked on our physical state throughout each day and provided advice and assistance where we needed it. Overall, the experience was one I'll never forget, primarily because I proposed at the top and because the Nepal Hiking team made the experience as stress-free and as organized as possible, all with a smile on their face at all times. I highly recommend NHT.
Megan Y., China Ganga, Balaram, and the team were fantastic; even when we had a 24-hour flight delay, they re-scheduled everything without fuss or fee. We had an excellent driver for just us (and guide where we had them). We even changed things along the way, and whether the driver, guide, or agent, they were more than willing to help and be flexible. :) The trip took in some hiking, some sightseeing, some relaxing, the jungle, and for each occasion and location, we were provided a specialist guide for the event/location. The hotels they chose for us were precisely our requirements based on the activity we were experiencing on any given day. Balaram even met us many times in person to round off the experience and ensure all was well and take honest feedback in person - the personal touch makes you feel even more appreciated and welcome as a customer. We would recommend anyone contact the team if they are planning a trip to Nepal. Thank you, guys, for a memorable vacation.
Jonathan, USA The team NHT provided the best possible service. They were attentive in every aspect in the months leading up to the trek through emails and were responsive and thorough in addressing my questions and concerns. During our tour, Bheg (our guide) and our porter were there to take care of our (myself and one other trekker) needs and always smile and graciously. I have used other more expensive and well-known trekking teams in the Himalayas in the past and would rank NHT on an equal or higher plain. Bheg has many years of experience, as did our porter, and was very competent in their roles and Bheg in his knowledge of the area and the trek. Though our porter did not speak very much, Bheg was kind enough to translate when asked, and our porter was equally attentive in assisting Bheg and us to ensure a successful trek. Very competitive price and an excellent team and experience. I highly recommend them.
