Hosted by


Guided trip
Let’s go for a long trek in Nepal, and let’s go for Manaslu Circuit Trek which will take 17 days. In 17 days, you will see what you have never seen in your life in other countries and spend a night in a place where basic facilities are available, and where full facilities are available that will satisfy you that will give you something to move from one remote place to another with a feeling of acceptance. You will walk a trekking trail that takes you to the waterfalls, and rivers, uphill, and downhill, including a forest where you can hear only your footsteps and the chirping of birds. As the monkey jumps off the tree, you would look at it because this is not a common sight in your country. You will also be heading to the Larka La Pass, and when you reach the highest altitude, you will see the beautiful view of the mountains, hills, and valleys.

If you arrive in Kathmandu in our office time, then we would, of course, take you to our office; otherwise, we would take you to the hotel where there are attached bathrooms, TV, and phone to meet your expectations. Give us a call on our mobile no if you have any problems in such a place. Order tea or coffee and breakfast, all of them are free; just give a call from your hotel room.

Boudhanath Stupa When it comes to visiting one of the oldest Buddhist Stupas in the world, then there is nothing better than Boudhanath Stupa because the oldest thing always has something too valuable to be mentioned just by doing sightseeing. Pashupatinath It is the oldest temple and the most important temple of Lord Shiva, according to the Hindus. You can look at this temple as the head of Lord Shiva. When the head is in Nepal, all the Hindus of the world come to Nepal to visit this temple. Kathmandu Durbar Square It is the oldest famous palace in Nepal.

The road is a combination of both things, meaning tarred road and bumpy. The bumpy part of the vehicle road is dusty, Sotikhola if you translate this word into English, will be the Soti River. Sotikhola is a village by the river, and it is small and has few lodges.


Day 4-5
Day 4: Trek to Machha Khola (930m) Duration: 6 - 7 hours Walk a road built by the Nepalese Army on the side of the hill by the green river. The road tells you that you are trekking and does not give you a feeling that you are a part of the modern world. You will see the children in the road as well as you will see women and men, doing some sort of work to survive. They are friendly, meaning they will talk with you if you ask them any questions.
