Exploring and sightseeing around Kathmandu valley can be one of the exotic scenic and pleasant experience of Nepal that can be organized throughout the year. The area lies in a transition zone between subtropical and temperate climate that is harboring the wild animals like sloth bear, leopard, barking deer, wild boar, common langur-the white monkey and wide variety of birds. The heart alluring panoramic views of Himalayas like Mt. Everest (8848m), Manaslu Himal (8163m), Cho Oyu Himal(8153m), Gauri-Shankar Himal(7145m), Bauddha Himal(6672m), Langtang Lirung(7246m), Dorje Lakpa(6990m), Ganesh Himal(7249m), Purbi Chyachu etc and meandering river valleys to the north east and bowl shaped populated valley to the south west add the more attraction in the natural beauty.

Shivapuri Watershed and Wildlife Reserve area is one of the main sources of drinking water for densely populated Kathmandu that was previously the main source of fuel-wood. Due to the easy access, comfortable, pleasant and short duration trip with unique views, many foreign and domestic tourists do this trek.

No prior hiking experience is needed for this trek because the trails are wide, mostly motorable, very close to the Kathmandu City and the highest point of the trek is 2732m only. We also save the time for Pokhara (the Lakeside City with magnificent view of Fishtail Mountain, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri) and Chitwan listed in Wo'''''''' rld Heritage Site (the famous National Park of Nepal for unique flora and fauna). We have the special trek package for our guests, which includes all costs except the alcoholic drink.

It lies 29km north west of Kathmandu that is also a popular picnic spot of the valley people. The best view of Ganesh Himal and Langtang Lirung is seen from there.

It is the only one place in the world from where it can be seen the Himalayas very closely having a cold drink in the low land city. A Japanese monk-Ekai Kawaguchi came to Nepal in 1900AD, he was the 1st trekker visited Pokhara. There are many side places and things to see in and around Pokhara valley. This is one of the scenic, popular and important tourist destinations of Nepal.
