      Emma katrin - December 05, 2019

      We spent 4 days touring Kathmandu City and Kathmandu Valley with Ashmita Trek and Tours. They were a wonderful group to see this city and area with.  After the hustle and bustle of the city it was wonderful to go out to Nagarkot day hike for the Sunrise view - we were lucky and had a lovely view of the Himalayas range of Annapurna though clouds kept Everest hidden! It was a beautiful view - especially watching the light change on the mountains. and later after our breakfast at Nagarkot we hiked 3-4 hours through the countryside and small towns to the UNESCO world heritage site Changu Narayan Temple. Like all the sites here - it was beautiful and a reward after a lovely hike ! We specifically want to commend our driver who kept our possessions safe while I toured and allowed me to feel safe in an area of thousands of hectic drivers!! absolutely no complaints whatsoever and I would recommend any clients interested in trekking around kathmandu valley.

      We start at 7 am after breakfast from our hotel kathamandu. The transportation will bring you to the highest point of nagarkot and from there walk downhill all the time (except 20min up, easy trek), passing by small villages and some temples. The guide was very friendly, acknowledged and adapted his walking speed to our condition. He also does longer treks in the Annapurna range, so he was great to talk to. We highly recommend this day trip to those keen for day trek in Kathmandu valley.
