        Nagarkot Trek

        I was busy working before my departure and did not make any other firm plans for my visit in Nepal. I also did not have a lot of time to spend in Nepal, but I had three days free and I wanted to go on a hike.

        They took me on a three day trek through the low laying mountains and countryside.

        It was the best way to see the Nepali culture and take in the beautiful views. My guide’s name is Amrit and he was wonderful.

        I am a woman traveling alone and I felt very safe and well taken care of.

        I did not have a lot of time to spend in Nepal and he made my trip an absolutely memorable one.
