chisopani to nagarkot trek review

Fantastic day trek from Kathmandu

100% 5 star based on – 306 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.
