Kathmandu Valley Rim Walks

A taste of trekking in Nepal

The Kathmandu valley rim land offers fine walks and short treks: plenty of easy, seldom-trekked trails through scenic countryside interspersed with multi-ethnic villages. Our Kathmandu valley walks are a refreshing break from the city to experience unspoiled rural Nepal. These easy to moderate grade walks are suitable for people of all ages, with 4 to 6 hours of walking each day and not exceeding 2,000m / 7,000' elevation. Southern Settlements, our classic day hike, offers unique cultural insights into the livelihood of the valley rim dwellers, particularly the Newars. The three-day Valley Vistas walk is a good sampling of trekking in Nepal, using lodge accommodations in Dhulikhel and Nagarkot, two of the most popular vantage points in the Kathmandu valley.
