Departure onward journey
Me and my husband did a hiking trip from Dhulikhel to Nagarkot in October 2016. It was very easy to book and a good driver with a modern car took us from Kathmandu to Dhulikhel and from Nagarkot to Kathmandu. Our guide Kumar was a perfectly professional and friendly guide who not only guided us from Dhulikhel to Nagarkot but also knew a lot of things about the way of life in the area, agriculture, culture etc. With all this knowledge, his positive attitude and a very good level of English we definitely got the best out of this trip. We strongly recommend Adventure Nepal Eco Treks and especially this perfect guide Kumar for anyone who wants to do a short (or longer) hiking trip in Nepal!
“An amazing experience with a professional guide”
