Taking this trip with Himkala Adventures was the highlight of my trip to Kathmandu! I had joined the free walking tour of Kathmandu the day before, and aver meeting Shiva and experiencing his endless kindness, knowledge, and professionalism, I decided to ask about other trips he offered, especially one that might get me out of the city for a day. He recommended this trip, and I couldn't have been more happy with the results! If I ever have the privileged of returning to Kathmandu, I will definitely be joining one of his many trips around the Kathmandu Valley again! Thank you Himkala Adventures for your amazing hospitality!

First of all Shiva is an excellent guide - friendly and very knowledgeable and of course has the local knowledge to take the group to places you would never think of in KTM.

The tour covers a lot of ground, probably around 10km but is at a reasonable pace and with options along the way e.g choice of heading up to the Monkey Temple with its 365 stairs, and then the choice to take a cab back to town.

Highly recommend.

Ive done “free walking tours” in many countries and Shiva’s tour was one of the best I’ve ever taken. He spent over four hours with us and the time flew by. He really went above and beyond based on the will and mood of the group. We learned things about the history of Kathmandu and about the present as well. He was also able to teach us so much about both Buddhism and Hinduism. Do yourself a favor and take Shiva’s tour. You won’t regret it.

Trekking to 3 passes on Everest with Himkala Adventure was one of the greatest lifetime experiences ever! Shiva organized our trek and it was very smooth, pleasant and absolutely remarkable. I've enjoyed the Sherpa land, the Namcha Bazaar, the great view from Tengboche Monastery, the Kalapatthar and the adjacent mountains, Everest basecamp, Gokyo Ri and so on...
Thank you very much for this awesome trekking, it was something that I will never forget.

After EBC trekking we still had some time left in Kathmandu and we wanted to explore the city. I think the best way to do so is with Shiva and his free walking tour. The tour was very interesting - he showed us also the local, hidden places of Kathmadu and some of the most important attrations. We learned a lot of new things. Thank you Shiva! We defenitely recommend this free walking tour! :)
