This trek is required to arrange the trek on full board camping (tented camp), bring along with camping equipments and food from Kathmandu.
The Kathmandu valley (1350m) hiking area is surrounded by tier of green mountain walls above which tower mighty snow-capped peaks. This is the best trek to see, enjoy, view and experience the life around the Kathmandu valley.
Kakani is 24 kilometers northwest of Kathmandu from where we start the trekking. We highly recommend this trek for those having very limited time in Nepal but want to do a short camping trek in the mountain. If weather permits, one can see the blossoming of rhododendrons along the ridge of the Shivapuri National Park and Phulchowki Hill area so it is one of the most beautiful hiking trails in terms of vegetation in Kathmandu valley.
