Kathmandu Valley Rim

Many visitors to Nepal leave for the mountains far too quickly and never get the opportunity to enjoy what is closer at hand in the Kathmandu valley.

This trip includes a five day trek around the hills surrounding the Kathmandu valley visiting places with superb panoramic views of the Himalaya mountains. The vista stretches from Manaslu and Annapurnas in the west to the distant pyramid of Mt. Everest, Numbur and Karyolung in the east. The views are different from each point on the trek each providing a unique angle and perspective on the Himalayan mountain range in Nepal.

You will also visit the most important religious and cultural sites of the Kathmandu valley and walk to less visited rural areas with ochre coloured farmhouses through rice terraces, orange orchards and forests. Your wonderful six day trek finishes off with a downhill trail to the old capital city of Bhaktapur in Kathmandu valley.

For every night of the trek you stay at mid-level hotels or resorts and we will transport your luggage to the next hotel by private car. You can also use our vehicle if you prefer to drive sections of the trail rather than walk the whole way each day.

Baltali village on Day 5 and 6 of this trek itinerary was recently included as one of Lonely Planet’s Top Five “World’s best multi-day treks…without high altitude”.
