Want to go on a nature hike away from the chaos of city life to enjoy panoramic views of Kathmandu? Join an expert local guide for a scenic hike and make your way through local settlements and community forests to enjoy uninterrupted views of Kathmandu Valley.

This hiking tour offers you panoramic views of the capital city from forests at the north end of Kathmandu. After getting to know your guide, jump on local transport for a 30-minute ride to Budhanilkantha Temple, the site of a statue of Lord Vishnu - the Hindu God of preservation. Admire the beautifully carved stone idol and observe how locals start their day by offering prayers to their deity. Then, it's time to start the hike through semi-rural settlements. You'll be surprised to see concrete, modern buildings alongside traditional houses, and goats walking alongside motorbikes.

The higher you go, the more beautiful the views will be. At the end of your hike, you'll visit the beautiful Pullahari Monastery where you can stroll around as you hear about Buddhist beliefs and symbolisms. You will free relaxed and peaceful and ready to go back to the hustle and bustle of the city.
