You don't have enough stamina to trek the Himalayas? You can't go on a long trek to the remote areas of Nepal due to lack of time? Do not despair: You can still experience something uniquely Nepal!. Most visitors who come to Nepal leave for the Himalayas too quickly, without even getting a glimpse of the natural and cultural treasures that are close by. Yes, we are talking about Kathmandu Valley, which is the hub for any activity in Nepal. Kathmandu is blessed with rich cultural heritage and enchanting natural beauty, and has so many things that one can explore, including buildings, temples, monasteries, ancient squares, and the beautiful surrounding hills.
Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur, all lying in the Kathmandu valley, make up this beautiful and unique city. Most of the Nepal’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites are located here. One can spend their time exploring the medieval enclaves, ancient temples, beautiful Durbar Square and unique carvings in the old houses within an easy walk. One can enjoy the amazing view of Kathmandu from famous Swayambhunath, or visit the Hindu temple, Pashupatinath. Just two kilometers from Kathmandu centers Buddhanath, one of the biggest stupas in the world. Changunarayan, at two-hour walk from Bhaktapur, is a must see cultural experience. A quick hike to the hills near the valley leads you to a beautiful world of panoramic views of Himalayas, pristine forests, and amazing landscapes. Shivapuri, Nagarkot, Dhulikhel, Chisapani, Kakani are all located in the Kathmandu Valley.So next time you are thinking of going on a trek, don’t forget about Kathmandu!
Note: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are traveling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. We thank you for your understanding.
Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
