Weekend Hiking Tour - 6 Days

The 6-days of Nepal tour has been designed to cater to the needs of those who wish to make a cultural tour of the valley, or those who are on a pilgrimage tour in Nepal. The Kathmandu valley boasts of a considerably high number of cultural sites recognized by UNESCO as the World Heritage Sites. All these sites in the Kathmandu Valley are related to the spiritual traditions practiced in the region. The valley blends different culture and lifestyle practiced in the region in its own way. The thousands of temples, stupas, pagodas and monuments inside the valley have made Kathmandu famous in the world as the City of Temples. The mountains encircling the valley surround three medieval cities – Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. Each city inside the valley has an artistic exposition of graceful temples, elegant palaces, brick-paved courtyards and quaint streets. Besides the three cities, there are also a number of other important sites in the periphery of the mountains. In this trip of Weekend Hiking Tour, we make a tour of some of the most important as well as interesting cultural and natural landscapes of Kathmandu Valley.

For those visitors who are inexperience in walking up and down on hills and who have little time to experience the high mountains of Majestic Himalayas and Nepalese culture they can choose these short and easy hiking trips around Nagarkot and Nala /Dhulikhel. Here are the collected of opportunities for short lowland hiking trip and walking tours in Nepal. Here is not much difference between Hiking and Trekking in Nepal. Hiking is an initial part of trekking and relatively easier that still involve up and down on rural hilly areas below 3000 meters but offers glimpse of High Mountains view. Nagarkot and Dhulikhel Hill stations of Nepal are very popular for hiking tours and as well as cultural and historical tours.

  1. We did only two days hiking in Kathmandu Valley but the service from Base Camp Adventures was perfect: Excellent advice and perfect service for both days, very professional and friendly. Thank Shree and Prakash. We era looking forward to next year trek with Base Camp Adventures
  2. Did a short 3 day trek during the monsoon season, despite the mega hot and wet weather it was still a brilliant trek, my guide was excellent and spoke great english...will definitely be heading back at some point to do a base camp or much longer trek!
  3. I used base camp adventures for a 3 day trek from Kathmandu and it was awesome! The guide Prakash was wonderful, so knowledgable and friendly and a pleasure to walk with. I would recommend him to anyone and the company Base camp adventures too. Very professional and cater for everyone's needs and a very good price. When I go back to beautiful Nepal I will definitely use their services again and hopefully for some longer trekking next time! Zoe UK
