Chisapani to nagarkot trek review

Fantastic day trek from Kathmandu

100% 5 star based on – 302 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

We had a wonderful trek with our guide Shreeram. He went above and beyond to provide a beautiful one day hike from Kakani to Bhanjyang, a short drive from Kathmandu. The walk itself was stunning – with regular, clear views of the Himalayas – and Shreeram was so helpful and friendly. It was also very easy to arrange the trek. Ammar, our point of contact, was clear and responsive. I would highly recommend Gokyo Treks & Expedition – Martha Mackenzie, California, USA.

Nagarkot Chisapani Hike 3 days (National Park)

100% 5 star based on – 153 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

We met Ammar searching a professional tour guide for our chisapani hikes. Luckily, he was a happy and free for guiding to us as we go on off season in Nepal. He made our chisapani Nagarkot journey a very memorable and great experience, although it was our first time hiking in Asia. He booked nice, clean and cozy places that we like and the view of the high mountains were just incredible. Experienced with the red panda and wild boar footprint fresh and some monkeys on the way to Nagarkot. Nagarkot sunrise and our way down to Changu Narayan was another interesting part of the hikes. Highly recommended Ammar and his agency for anyone who want to go for shivapuri hikes. Dr Jordanio and Judith william, Salzburg, Austria.
