Review

I had been to Kathmandu several times in Nepal but haven't got a chance for a trekking journey and exploration here. The last time I arrive here was with my fiancee and she asked me to explore the Kathmandu Valley so I contact My Everest Trip. We had provided with 3 days of itinerary to explore the Kathmandu valley. Although it was a short trek it was worthy enough. The morning view of Nagarkot, the cultural and historical sites, the Shivapuri national park, and the charming village is still in our heart. The most recommended exploration trek is for those with limited time but who want to explore Kathmandu.

I am the kind of introvert person who loves peace and nature when I arrive in Nepal last time I honestly didn't like the crowd of Kathmandu Valley so I decided to go to a peaceful place near but not away from the city facilities. My Everest Trip help me organize my trip according to my choice. The guide was very friendly and helped me with a lot of things. Even though I went on a solo trek I didn’t go through a lot of trouble. Not away from city facilities but calm and peaceful along with nature's beauty the Kathmandu Valley trek gave me the best experience.
