hi Pierre and Mahesh. Very nice to hear from you. Great to hear that Pierre now you are in Kathmandu. We had a wonderful visit to Nepal, the weather was great during the Kali Gandaki trek. We did what wanted to do in Kathmandu and Pokhara and we even managed to do the mountain flight. What more could we ask for. Mahesh and Lhakpa looked after us very well and we came back with wonderful memories of Nepal, with a strong desire to return. Thanks for Frens Himalayan Treks and Expedition. Anu Mitra

Shivapuri trek

This is an easy route for people wanting to hike around the Kathmandu Valley. The highest point of the ridge, at 2732m provides stunning views of the city and its outskirts. Much of the trek is made through unspoiled old growth forests of oak, rhododendron and beech. Spotted deers, monkeys and jackals are seen along the trail. The trek goes through many beautiful villages. After Nagarkot, one of the most famous Everest view point of the valley we will continue until Panauti and Dhulikel  through medieval villages, rice fields, terrace hills and magnificent view points like Dhulikel or Namo Bouddha. This easy walk will provide you charming glimpse of rural life.
