The Kathmandu Valley and the hills surrounding it provide plenty of fodder for the explorer. There are heritage sites, temples, monasteries and historical structures to see within the Valley. While the hills, with the views they offer and the weather, are perfect retreats from the city. In six days, you will have travelled to all the happening places in Kathmandu. The hills of Nagarkot and Dhulikhel will show you a panoramic view of the Himalayas and a bird’s-eye view of Kathmandu.
We will receive you at the airport and take you to you hotel.
We will take you on a guided tour to three iconic monuments in Kathmandu which are included in the Unesco’s World Heritage List. Our first stop will be the Pashupatinath Temple, one of the biggest and holiest shrines in the world of Hindu god Shiva.
We visit another World Heritage Site of Boudhanath Stupa, one of the largest Buddhist stupas in the country. It is believed that the Stupa is a tomb of an incarnation of Lord Buddha.
We then drive to Bhaktapur to visit the Bhaktapur Durbar Square. The square is a former royal courtyard where there are several ancient temples and monuments to visit. The place is rich in culture and preserves the traditional way of living.
In the evening, we will take a short drive to Nagarkot Hill Station. The weather and the scenic beauty of the place make Nagarkot the most popular hill surrounding the Kathmandu Valley.
You might want to wake up early to view the sunrise. Nagarkot is one of the best locations to watch the rising sun. Then we will drive to another popular hill station near Kathmandu – Dhulikhel. It takes about one hour to get there by a vehicle. At Dhulikhel, you can visit temples or local markets to spend your evening while the scenes of the Himalayas will always be there at the backdrop.
We will return to Kathmandu. You can spend the day by visiting some more landmarks here or just relax at your hotel. In the evening, Mountain Kick will host a farewell dinner to culminate your holiday.
We will drop you to the airport and bid you goodbye.
In Kathmandu, you will stay in a three-star hotel while you will be staying at standard guesthouses during your travel.

As one of the core guiding principles for Mountain Kick, we always give back to the mountain community in any way we can as a means of gratitude. The people who live in the Himalayas and share their homes with us deserve to have all their little problems fixed which seem very basic for outsiders but are commonplace in rural Nepal. The people lack proper access to healthcare, sanitation and education but a little effort from travellers goes on a long way to solve these issues. Mountain Kick has made it its corporate social responsibility to help improve the living standards of the local community. We make donations to their cause, organize social campaigns and programs and also have a few trips designed to mix a little volunteer work in your holiday.READ MORE ABOUT CSR
