Nagarkot day hiking tour

Travelling Year: 2020

Refreshing and informative hiking tour

This tour was a hiking tour which was very interesting in several aspects. We visited temples and especially villages outside Kathmandu. It was a great experience to see the local people doing their daily things and at the same time doing a refreshing hiking with an informative conversation with the guide. I learned a lot about the Napelese culture and also practical information about the life of the normal people in Nepal.
