Trekking through Nepal doesn't need to be a huge investment in your travel schedule, budget, or cardiovascular endurance. This five-day trek travels through lower altitudes, making this once-in-a-lifetime activity more approachable. Hike alongside rhododendron and oak forests in Chisopani, capture sunset at Nagarkot, and visit Namo Buddha, one of the most sacred Buddhist sites in the country. Cross a Nepal trekking experience off your travel to-do list — without scaling the heights of Everest.
Transfer to Budhanilkantha and visit the 5m long stone image of Vishnu, followed by a short hike to the Shiavpuri conservation area. From here, begin the four hour hike towards Nagi Gompa and beyond the monastery. Spend the night in the guesthouse of a local monastery.
