Many people who living in the main cities to name a few find themselves with a short period of holiday time & no idea where to spend it. The thriving Himalayan city of Kathmandu is a short flight of most of the cities & is an affordable, exciting & culturally rich holiday awaiting you in Kathmandu.
Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal & the central tourist hub that acts as the gateway to the mighty Himalaya. If you don`t know what to do & where to go you could easily waste your precious time of the tourist traps, being hassled by touts & wasting money on expensive non-local arranged sightseeing tours. Kathmandu has a charm hidden underneath all the “tourist tinsel” & the best way to find it by going local. Though doing it rough & ready is not an ideal of most people traveling with young families or the elders, a little bit of preplanning & a good balance of organized it yourself touring can give you an amazing holiday in Kathmandu. Chitwan jungle safari tour is one of the most exciting trip and getting around is much easier that you think. It`s a good chance to get out of the city, see the country /jungle side & best of all the kids will absolutely love bathing the elephants, riding them & playing with baby elephants at the elephant breeding center. Interaction with these gentle giants will be a highlight talked about by them for years to come.
Return to Kathmandu after visiting Pokhara including a full day city tours in and arond the Pokhara valley & get yourself to Nagarkot known as the city fort, one of the premier hill stations. The big attraction to Nagarkot is what everyone comes to Nepal to see, the mountains. From this hilltop town, views can be seen right from Annapurna in the west all the way down of Everest in the east. If you are lucky a guide will be able to point out the distant peak of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world. Everest is seen most clearly at sunrise. The best time of year to see impressive views of the mountains is from September through November.
After an overnight stay in Nagarkot you can return to the vehicle for Kathmandu or if you are have an active family, take the time to trek down through the hillside Tamang villages to Changunarayan temple, the oldest & one of the loveliest temples in the whole of Kathmandu valley. It is certainly worth a visit. Then after drive down to Bhaktapur, the ancient walled city & spend a good amount of time exploring the cobbled lane ways of Bhaktapur which at one time was a kingdom, the oldest kingdom in the Kathmandu valley. Tucked away behind the main square, you can find potters square which is where the locals still make by hand all forms of pottery for everyday & temple usage.

Most of the teahouses/lodges are either double bed rooms or twin sharing rooms. Some of the majors trekking destinations, there are deluxe comfortable hotels & Resorts is also available.

Porter Care
We are tremendously concern over the rights of the porters who facilitate traveler`s adventure dreams in the Himalayas. Without porters hard working, your dream to go to mountains will not be certain/guaranteed. It is our serious concern that the porters should be well paid, make sure their warm clothing, well equipped and treated equally even in the harsh situation in the remote Himalayas. In case of emergency situations, we give equal to rescue facilities as other team members get in the adverse situation in the higher altitude including rescue services by Helicopter. Besides this, we too are concern about International Porter Protection Group (IPPG) which works in the field of trekking porter/s by protecting the rights of porter, basic language training to express their problems, make sure for enough warm clothing & other equipment, compulsory Insurance facility. In doing so, we recommend all our trekkers in the Himalayas just to keep their luggage under 30 kg so that it can be handled by porters smoothly in the higher mountains. If possible, try to make about 25 Kg. over 4,000 m & high passes.

Environmental Concerns
Being human beings, it is our responsibility to protect natural & cultural order, to conserve environment and to love nature. Himalayan region is ecologically very much fragile and hence we try to practice “to leave just footprints and take photos” so that future generation will to have chances to experience the beauty of Himalayan region. Respecting natural balance and being sensible towards local environment yields into protecting local cultures as well. Hence, our trip operations tremendously focus on environmental issues in the Himalayas and thereby eco-tourism.

Trekking Group Arrangement
Experience Treks generally provides one trek guide/trekking leaders for the trip operation and porter/s for luggage carrying. It means if there are 4 trekkers, there will be one trek guide & two porters. In the case of porter/s arrangements, there will be one porter for each two paying trekker. This arrangements helps to carry out the trip smoothly even in the adverse situation. Our trips generally accommodate the group of 10 people at a time. Despite this arrangement, we can adjust or run the trips over than 10 people at a time as well as.

Best Seasons
The best seasons of travelling/trekking in the Himalayas are autumn season (September-November) and spring season (March-May). Apart from these two seasons, there is a possibility of trekking in the Himalayas even in the winter and summer seasons which is called off-seasons. In the winter season, cold, snowing & flight delay or cancellation slightly affects the trips & high passes could be closed. But, travelling/trekking in the summer season comes with tremendous rewards for a passionate botanist despite of rainy days, flooding, landslides, flight delay or cancellation like winter season. It will be great in the least rain fall regions & high passes, where are lots of wild orchid blooming.
