Short Hikes

Hiking could be a great, short get away from the polluted and dusty city for a while. Kathmandu, where the valley is surrounded by luscious green hills from all side, has got plenty of places where people could go for a short hike. You could not just get rid of the city life, but see the radical changes in the lifestyle and the environment, between the city and the places you will be discovering.



Cycling is a really good way to exercise your body and go around the city or into the luscious green forest to just free yourself. But make sure, you are well protected from the sun and dust, if your planning to go around inside the valley.

Short Spiritual Trip

Kathmandu is called city of temples, and there is a valid reason for it. In other terms, Kathmandu valley is filled with many temples, stupas and monasteries, where you could go and explore. Be enlightened with its beauty and the devotion you can see there. Pashupatinath temple, Swyombhunath, Boudhanath are some very visited sites here.
