Kathmandu Valley Rim is a five-day trek around the hills surrounding the Kathmandu valley visiting places with superb panoramic views of the Himalaya mountains.
Many visitors to Nepal leave too soon for the mountains and do not visit the Kathmandu valley. During the Kathmandu Valley trek, you stay at mid-level hotels. We will transport your luggage to the next hotel by private car.
We visit the most important religious and cultural sites of Kathmandu. Over the nine days, we see five out of the seven World Heritage sites. On the second day, we have a day sightseeing in Kathmandu with a guide. We visit Patan Durbar Square, Boudhanath, and the Hindu shrine of Pashupatinath.
We start the walk at the World Heritage site of Changu Narayan located north of Bhaktapur. During the hike, we see rural areas with farmhouses in traditional villages. Along the way, we see a landscape of rice terraces, orange orchards, and forests. Every place we stay during the trek has views of the Himalayas. The views are different providing unique angles of the mountain range in Nepal. The vista on this trek stretches from Manaslu and Annapurnas in the West to the distant pyramid of Mount Everest, Numbur and Karyolung in the East.
Your wonderful journey ends in the old capital city of Bhaktapur in Kathmandu valley.
