We visited famous places of the city. Every place we visited were beautiful with their own value. My favorite part of our excursion was Sunrise and Sunset View in Nagarkot. View of the different mountain! Wow truly amazing. I still got goose-bumps when I recollect that tremendous view. Tons of thanks Nepal Trek Adventure for arranging amazing Kathmandu City Tour and professional guide.

    Amazing Kathmandu City tour


    Spending some quality time in Kathmandu was like a dream came true for me. I was born in Nepal but I have never been there before. My parents were from Nepal but they are no more Nepalese citizen. I always wanted to visit my birthplace but never got an opportunity. A few months ago when I got my semester break I visited Kathmandu-the capital city of Nepal. My parents contact Binod Sapkota owner of Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition and arrange 5 days Kathmandu City tour for me. I was surprised by the beauty of the city. I got to know why Kathmandu city is called as a ‘city of the temple’ because in almost every street you can find small temples. Krishna Sapkota was my guide for Kathmandu City tour. He was a professional guide with a good sense of humor. He had good knowledge about the culture and tradition of many places. I visit the high spot of Kathmandu cities like Basantapur, Swayambhu, Pashupati, Bouddha and Patan. The city was amazing as my parents use to tell me. Huge thanks to Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition for this amazing Kathmandu City Tour.

    Binod and his crew were amazing. My fiance and I only had 3 days in Nepal and wanted to get the most out of the short time we were there. Binod custom-organized a three-day tour of the country, recommending great hotels within the budget that we wanted to spend. Everything was fantastic from the start-- Binod was fast at getting back with emails, he really listened to my interests, and they only organized things that we really wanted to do, unlike other tour companies where I feel like they recommend places that they have connections to. He had organized a great driver (driving there is a bit crazy!), a very informative tour guide that knew everything about the temples, and a very gracious trekking specialist. If you ever want to see Nepal to the fullest, especially in a short time, this is definitely the way to go!
