    We were a group of 16 people and we had a great experience. Our Guide Milan was super knowledgable and took great care of us. This is the experience of a lifetime!

    Once I booked the tour, the Himalayan Planet contacted me and confirmed the pick up arrangement. The day before the tour, they advised me the temperature difference between morning and daytime, asked me to prepare my hiking clothes accordingly.

    My tour guide, Mr.Shishir Thapa showed up on time. He and the deiver were very polite and friendly.

    During the Hiking, Mr.Thapa never rushed me anyrhing, he always gave me extra time to take pictures and enjoy the beautiful view. He was also very knowledgeable. Whatever question I asked, he had an answer.
    He explained what's crops local farmer were growing winter season, name of the flowers and fruits by roadside, local customs, history and religion of Nepal, all were very interesting.
    Since he was a very experienced mountain guide, he shared some story of trekking trips.

    If you have not enough time to go for a long trekking but want see mountain, I highly recommend this tour with Mr.Shishir Thapa.

    Som is a fantastic guide with a genuine passion for guiding and an absolute wealth of knowledge. I learnt a lot from him.
    Guide and drivers were punctual, and communication with the tour company was good. The trail itself is beautiful and I can only imagine how spectacular it would be if it wasn’t a cloudy day, as we couldn’t see any of the big mountains and mountain ranges surrounding us. Som can communicate in both English and Chinese, is also extremely interested in Chinese culture and language so I would recommend him to anybody looking for a guide who can speak Chinese.

    Break at the tea house was lovely, and picnic lunch was a simple but delicious takeaway at a scenic spot.

    Lots of steps so would NOT recommend for anybody with knee problems. Some slippery and muddy sections, hiking poles might be helpful. Trail is not too difficult but moderate fitness required, you get quite huffy puffy going uphill!

    The only thing I was disappointed with was all the rubbish. Nothing to do with the tour or company, but it was an absolute eyesore. Nepal is blessed with so much natural beauty, I wish the government and local people would take more initiative in taking care of the land!

    Thank you for a great day.

    We enjoyed our hike and the experience all in all was fantastic. Our guide Shishir was very knowledgeable and we’re pleased that he was patient with us. Loved the views of the Himalayas and the village people were so kind and welcoming.

    I didn't know what to expect from this tour as I never went bird watching before. It was a fun and peaceful experience. The guide was very friendly, knew his birds, and had a professional camera with him, resulting in stunning pictures of the spotted birds. If you want to hike for a day in Kathmandu valley instead of multi-day trekking, this is a great option. Awesome breakfast and lunch as well.

    My tour was very good. Krishna is a good safe driver.
    Dipesh is 5 star quality. He is very informative and interesting.
    I was traveling solo and felt very safe and respected throughout the trip. He led the tour very well at my pace. I had explained that I could not walk the full distance. He very kindly had the driver be waiting after we had walked one hour in case I was not good to do more. But I managed another hour.
    He then brought me by car to the Changu Nayrayon Temple site where again he was full of great information
    I would definitely recommend this trip.

    Great tour. Krishna was very kind, knowledgeable and talkative and I felt safe with our driver. The views from the hike were exceptional and the length was just right. I would recommend this tour for people that don't have several days to devote to trekking but want to see the countryside.

  • We had a great time doing this sunrise view and hike, we got a great view of the sun rising over the Himalayas! The hike itself was pretty easy, you have the option to stop after about an hour or 2 or push on all the way to the temple (more like 4 hours) which we did and very much enjoyed. Our only negative was it felt like our guide was surprised we wanted to do the whole hike and we felt a little awkward saying we did (even though that was advertised on the tour). Otherwise Ram was a great guide, we really enjoyed talking with him and learning more about life in Nepal! This tour is definitely worth it, it feels like the same quality as others offered but for a much lower price.

    5+ stars. Great way to get out of Kathmandu and do a scenic walk and lunch. I am 57 male and a bit overweight. Found the hike challenging in a great way. Not all downhill but it was definitely get dropped off near top and walk down. Guide with25+ years experience was excellent. Recommend good walking boots or shoes. Cloudy in September so don’t expect great views of Himalayas but you will be happy to see Kathmandu so well. For pick up, guide, driver, hike, lunch and tour it was a SUPER deal. Highly recommended.

    I booked this day hike to Nagarkot. I was picked up at my hotel. I was alone and had a private guide, Shekhar Thapa. We were driven to Nagarkot, then hiked all day, had lunch and ended at a temple. I was then driven back to my hotel.
    What makes the day so memorable is my guide, Shekhar. He was the perfect mix of talkative and quiet. I learned so much from him about animals. nature, eco systems. He also treks to Base Camp and told me all about Everest.
    I felt so comfortable with him. We had good talks about our families and our lives. It was just the kind of experience you would want to have as a lifetime memory. I'm thankful for the day and the friendship.

    One of my favorite activities from my trip to Kathmandu.

    From the moment that we were picked up at our hotel Shishir made sure that all of our needs were met. We didn't have cash and forgot to bring waters to the hike, so he made sure to stop at a nearby ATM and also purchased waters for us.

    When they hike began Shishir pointed out every important landmark and was very thorough at explaining each mountain range seen from afar. He is very knowledgeable about the Kathmandu Valley.

    The hike was gorgeous. Pictures truly do not give it justice.

    This is something that every person visiting Kathmandu should experience for themselves

    During the hike we mentioned to Shishir that we wanted to purchase some souvenirs before leaving Kathmandu . He then offered to take us to Thamel where we found local shops that gave us incredible deals.

    Shishir was the best guide during our stay in Kathmandu.
