Short Treks Around Kathmandu and Pokhara

Short trekking is a special activity providing those people, who do not have long period for trekking and hiking but really want to take the taste of trekking. The treks are at low altitude based and easier in comparison with other treks in Nepal. We believe these treks provide a wonderful experience of trekking including spectacular and magnificent view of Mountains and Himalaya. Next fact is that these short treks allow an opportunity to observe culture and religion of the tropical Nepali society insight the village. These treks are appropriate for elderly people, short time Nepal visitors, physical fitness seekers, village/culture tourism seekers etc. Such treks bring you to close proximity to Nepalese diverse cultural richness.
