I went on two day tours with Himalayan Planet, which were both excellent. Nabaraj, the owner of the company, is quick to communicate and incredibly accommodating. He was in constant communication via WhatsApp to ensure my schedule was full of great experiences.
I did the Nagarkot Sunrise & Day Hike, which turned out to be a wonderful day. While the visibility was not great (to see Everest or the rest of the Himalayas), it was still very worthwhile. The people inhabiting this region were very different from those staying in Kathmandu and it was interesting to see a different side of the culture. The breakfast was fantastic and Changu Narayan was a treat. It is a very old village at the end of the hike with a temple where the people were so friendly. I did the hike solo with just the guide, Bidur, who was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about the culture and the region. I highly recommend this day hike tour. If you get a glimpse of Everest, that will make it even more special!
I did the Kathmandu day tour the next day, exploring sites like the Bouddha, Pashupati and Bhaktapur. All were great experiences and our guide gave us excellent information about the cultures behind these sites. Bhaktapur was the highlight for me! It’s a very cool, old city with a great vibe and it is not as crowded or hectic as Thamel or any of the areas in Kathmandu. The sites all charge entrance fees anyways, and these were covered by the tour, so I found it to be an excellent value.
Thanks Naba, Bidur and team for an excellent experience in Nepal. See you soon for EBC!
