Kathmandu Valley Trek Independent Adventure

Trekking through Nepal doesn't need to be a huge investment in your travel schedule, budget, or cardiovascular endurance. This five-day trek travels through lower altitudes, making this once-in-a-lifetime activity more approachable. Hike alongside rhododendron and oak forests in Chisopani, capture sunset at Nagarkot, and visit Namo Buddha, one of the most sacred Buddhist sites in the country. Cross a Nepal trekking experience off your travel to-do list — without scaling the heights of Everest.
