Kathmandu Valley trek taking you along the rims of the Kathmandu Valley offering distant views of snowy mountains, and an idea of typical Nepali countryside life and ethnic culture. It is best suited for those who are traveling with children, enjoy outdoor camping but who do not have enough time for longer treks into the high mountains. We drive to a trail- head at Sundarijal, and gradually hike uphill to Mulkharka (1768m). The second day we walk along the valley rims with great views of mountains, then get to Chisapani (2194m) from where some superb views of Himalayas, and sunrise/sunset views can be observed. Then next day we make our camp at Chauki. Likewise, next day we trek along the way to Nagarkot(2020m), the best vantage points for mountains and sunrise views.
