After breakfast we board local bus and begin to head back to Kathmandu. The bus ride is nice after three days of trekking.  We watch the little villages pass by as we move toward the capital city. The local people are friendly on the bus. They are curious because they don’t get to see many visitors in this part of Nepal. 
It’s amazing just how much there is to do around Kathmandu and the surrounding Valley. As you return, you will no doubt with you could see some other amazing places in Nepal. The people at Himalayan Advisor will be happy to show you some more interesting places to see and visit in not only around the Kathmandu Valley, but throughout all of Nepal.
