    Perfect one day hike from Kathmandu

    While in Kathmandu for a short trip we decided last minute to do a one day hike within the Kathmandu area. I sent out a few requests to different trekking companies but Dipak was very quick to response and had one of the most reasonable prices. Dipak organized a great one day hike up from Nagarkot to Changunarayan. The walking is easy with gradual downhill and fairly leveled path. It will take about 4 hrs to reach Changunarayan.

    Narayan, our guide was very knowledgable and had a good sense of humor.

    It was a perfect day to get out of the noise and pollution of Kathmandu.

    Dipak also arranged a last minute bungy jump excursion for the following day. He met me at the restaurant we were eating supper to sign forms and make sure I got registered and then met me at 5:45 am the next morning to make sure I got to the correct location. Awesome customer service.
