Short Trek : Chisapani nagarkot hiking

My few friends and I were looking for a short hike in the Kathmandu Valley and found Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd. Mr Kishor Suggest Chisapni Nagarkot hiking. He booked a guide and made arrangements in a short time. The next day we started our Chisapani Nagarkot hike. It was fun to experience the local culture, Tradition, local lifestyle, the mountain range a bit far away, but we enjoyed nature walks and saw a lot of local lifestyles and small farms. Along the way, we saw pets like goats, chickens, buffalo, cows, and lots of greenery that we enjoy and love.

Our guide was the best I met in Nepal. I will speak to him the next time I return to Nepal to visit Annapurna Circuit or Everest Base Camp. Thank you for the best service with very professional and with excellent knowledge of the traditions and cultural heritage of the country and simple conversations that make the tour a pleasure not only for our body but also for the Soul and mind.
