Hiking and trekking around Kathmandu
The verdant hills around Kathmandu make a ground for a beautiful day hikes and short trek around Kathmandu. The hill top reaches the altitude of about 3,000 m and offers the view of Ganesh Himal, Langtang and Jugal Himal ranges. Walking through the charming Tamang villages, one can get the close insight of the countryside lifestyle. Tamang people pursue shamanistic and animistic practices along with Buddhism. From our homestay the Shivapuri national park in the north is just about 8 km and the Nagarjuna hill is about 2.5 km. Here are the lists of day hike and short treks you can do from our homestay.
