This tour includes 4 days, 3 nights. You start off meeting in Thamel, then driving about 45 mins to the hike start point. This morning is pretty much all uphill. Lunch was daal baat at a local restaurant. Overnight in Chisapani, which has beautiful views on both sides of the ridge. For Chisapani, we stayed at a basic guesthouse. Be sure to bring a towel, toilet paper, soap, and a sleeping bag liner or sleeping bag. They provide a modest blanket and pillow. Dinner was daal baat. The next morning you hike on the side of mountain to Nargokot. The morning is a long hike, a few hours, followed by another few hours. Lunch was at a guesthouse daal baat. Overnight in Nargokot at Hotel Country Villa, which overlooks a huge valley. It was super nice. Recommend purchasing the buffet dinner and breakfast. The next day is an easy hike out of Nargokot, where you will pass through several villages. Feel free to ask to stop and meet the villagers, buy some of their tea, or learn about locally brewed millet wine. I skipped the temple hike, which adds a few hours. We arrived in Bhaktapur around lunchtime. I was free to get lunch on my own. Bhaktapur is very in tune with the tourist industry. Thus, there are several Western style eateries usually at hotels. That afternoon, my guide showed me basic things in Bhaktapur, which reminded me of an ancient Italian bricked city. My guide then let me explore on my own. Be sure to venture off the tourist trail to see how life is really lived. Don't be afraid to get lost. Overnight was at a Bhaktapur hotel which overlooked Taumadhi Square. Bhaktapur is very touristy, so be sure to bargain for gifts. If you want a good gift for everyone back home, buy them an incense holder in the clay square, these run about 20 NR for one small one. The next day, I was free to explore on my own, then I met up for lunch with my guide and I was taken to the airport.

Other items: there is a porter until Bhaktapur, be sure to tip him.

Good for trekking enthusiasts. Around 6 hours daily of serious trekking through a good mix of national park, rural villages, farm land and mountaineous terrain. Average pace allowed adequate water/rest breaks and lunch to recharge. Stayed overnight in one teahouse and two hotels. Hotels were comfortable and more than expected. Teahouse was basic with attached bathroom but has no air-con and hot water, hence be prepared. Food was satisfactory. Guide and porter were knowledgable and helpful. Last day at Buktapur allowed tour of historical town and shopping. Overall a well planned itinerary.
