    What to Expect
    Once you are picked up at the appointed meeting point at 9 am, you will be transported to Sanga, the starting point of the hike, which is just on the eastern edge of the Kathmandu Valley - better renowned for the tallest Shiva statue [one of the third holy Gods in Hinduism] in the world.

    After a steep ascent for about half an hour, the hike mostly flattens out and takes walkers along ridgelines with steep drops below, views of rice fields and farmland, the beautiful sight of the town, Banepa, on the horizon and spectacular view of the Himalayan range, above.

    Tamang communities are the indigenous and guardian to this route. 'Tamang' which translates to 'Horse Warriors' in the Tibetan language, used to engage themselves as border patrol in the 8th century to protect Tibet, Tibetan monarchy, and its people. Followers of 'Bon' Dharma, an aspect of Tibetan Buddhism; a much-related culture to the ancient Tibet can be witnessed in this hilly trekking route.

    However, this hike ends in a completely different cultural destination, Panauti. During the hiking route, already you passed through the Braham's community, who is a member of the highest Hindu caste, but your hike takes a final rest in the Newar community. Renowned for being an artistically blessed ethnicity, Newars have decorated Panauti with the phenomena of master skills of handicraft and metalworks. Enjoy your short visit to the temples of the Panauti, and dine with the family members of the Panauti Community Homestay to call off your beautiful day.

    This was my first hiking experience in Nepal, and I highly recommend it. The guide was amazing, friendly and knowledgeable. You work up a good appetite on the hike, before being treated to an amazing lunch at a homestay. A real experience.

    Great trip! The hike is lovely, but having a few extra days to explore the Community Homestay program on my own at the end was incredibly special and gave me a slower, calmer perspective that was critical to my understanding and love of Nepal. I...More
