This is my first time on the Kathmandu forum, I am very much looking forward to spending a week there on the way back from Australia in August (rainy season, but I'm sure I will enjoy it none the less!).
I'm looking do a short 3D2N hike around the region, and have found one which includes the following at a very reasonable price. Would you kindly let me know whether this is a decent route as a taster and not too strenuous? I intend to go back one day to do the Everest base camp trek (when I have the physical capacity to do so :-P)
Kathmandu- Chisapani. Drive from Kathmandu to Sundrijal for an hour, trek to Chisapani. Overnight at Chisapani.
Chisapani – Nagarkot: trek to Nagarkot. Overnight at Nagarkot.
Trek down to Changunarayan and visit old Hindu temple Changunaraya and drive back to Kathmandu.
Any advice would be much appreciated. I'm young and reasonably fit so I'm not looking for "easy easy" but I'd like to be able to enjoy it rather than feel embarassed for not being able to keep up with the pensioners haha!
I'm looking to do it at the start of my stay so I can then have a few days to explore Kathmandu city and recover!
