The Kathmandu valley (1300 m) is surrounded by tier of green mountain walls above which tower mighty snowcapped peaks. A full picturesque view of the valley is received by this trek only. The route is comfortable full of green fields and settlements of the people who are apparently encroached by the modern urban life of the Kathmandu city but are unable to leave their way of traditional life of peasantry and self sustained economy. When there is talk of Nepal, we immediately think of Everest.
But life and civilization are mainly concentrated in the Katmandu valley where temples, palaces and monasteries abound. This trip combines a relaxing and easy trek with the cultural element. On little-frequented trails, it is fascinating to go from one village to another, along a river or on a hillside, through terraced rice-fields and woody areas and enjoy magnificent panoramas of the countryside set against a backdrop of snow-covered peaks. Every stage brings its own reward: the breath-taking scenery of the Himalayan peaks in Nagarkot, the visit of the medieval city of Bhaktapur, the fascinating Namo Buddha monastery and Panauti pagodas.
Entire route is fully conserved greenery and has very exciting flavor of both tradition and modernity. One does not have to miss the opportunity of seeing magnificent views of the Himalayas because this route also offers ample opportunities for viewing panoramic views of the Himalayan range from Gaurishankar to Langtang and Ganesh Himal to the perception of real proximity. During the season of late February to March, one can enjoy with the rhododendron flower. Also this area is famous to watch the wild animals as well as many specious of birds.
