Day hike to nagarkot(short hike)

I recently had the pleasure to experience Adventure A One Treks' day hiking to Nagarkot with an amazing tour guide, Dhrubba. Right from the pick-up from the hotel, he was so friendly and welcoming that made us feel so comfortable throughout the hike. Ramesh is unbelievably knowledgeable and went out of his way to make sure we had a safe and memorable experience. He also provided us with a great historical overview of the various sights that we visited. The views of the Himalayan Range, Kathmandu Valley and rolling green hills were beautiful and breathtaking! Overall, this was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend Adventure A One Treks for embarking on a day-hike adventure! Five stars!
