Hiking around the Kathmandu Valley can be a best option for the tourists visiting Nepal for a short period of time. In case, if they don’t have much time or energy to trek further afield, they can still experience hiking for one or more days around Kathmandu’s hills and small settlements. The sub-alpine forests and quiet countryside make for a great short break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Most of the hikes can be carried out in a single day. They are suitable for children and older people as well.
