City of Temples- Kathmandu
Five Aussies Ross, Gill, Gail, Marlene and Graeme arrived at the Friendship Bridge on October 20, 2012 after the most adventurous highland tour on the roof of the world; Tibet. They boarded the bus to Dhulikhel after the completion of immigration formalities. Dhulikhel lies 32km east to the Nepalese capital Kathmandu. The city is a real small town which is very popular for the majestic mountain views and as a starting point for the short treks. The city is full of temples and culturally rich with major Newari inhabitants. After the lunch in an exotic resort at Dhulikhel, the Aussies headed towards the heritage city Kathmandu.
Durbar Square- Kathmandu during night.
Kathmandu, is the city of temples, monasteries, shrines and deities. The ancient city offers the wide range of cultural and historical heritages of the different eras which played the significant role in the Nepalese history. Narayanhiti Palace, Singha Durbar, Darhara, Ghanta-ghar, Rani Pokhari are the major ancient monuments. However, apart from these historically important monuments the cultural and religious displays of the ancient Nepal could be majorly viewed at Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pahupatinath Temple and the ancient monateries like Swayambhunath and Boudhanath. Besides, the Kathmandu city the valley shares two other historically and culturally important cities Bhaktapur and Patan. These two cities are equally appealing for once in a life time visit. The Aussies made the tour around the Kathmandu city. Due to the lack of time they were unable to visit Patan and Bhaktapur. However, they managed the time to wonder around the typical Thamel. Thamel is in the heart of Kathmandu. The narrow streets with abundant hotels, bars and restaurants, musics, traditional cultural outlets, cosmopolitan environment, cyber cafes, travel agencies and many more; Thamel is the place where every visitor in Nepal makes his presence at least once.
The exodus of the Aussie lineup happened on 23rd October 2012.

I highly recommend Explore Himalaya for anyone seeking an unforgettable trekking experience in the Himalayas. Thank you to all the the staff, for making our journey truly exceptional!
13 Day Manaslu Circuit Trek Nov 2018 We have just returned to Kathmandu after a wonderful trek around the Manaslu circuit, starting in Soti Khola and finishing in Jaget. The trek and transport out and back to Kathmandu were very well organized. Our guide, Bharet Rana was excellent, arranging our tea-house accomodation and meals each day, without hitch. He was always good humoured and provided an interesting commentary on sights along the way.
Our Everest Base Camp trek was a wonderful and memorable one. Everything was very well organised. Thank you Explore Himalaya and the staffs for such an excellent service. We were taken care of from the moment we landed in Ktm till the day we left. The Guides and the Porters team of Explore Himalaya are very friendly and helpful. They took care of every little things during our trek. Some walked faster, some slowly and few could not but No one was left behind. They walk with your pace and motivates you until you get up. Anuj Pandey, MD of Explore Himalaya was available 24 hours a day when anybody was in need, he even flew to Namche to check if everything was going well and if everybody was doing good. The Guides Bibek Pandey, Bhuwan Tamang and Ram Rajbhandari along with their 5 Porters were the main pillars who made our mission accomplished. I'd highly recommend anybody who wants to travel to Nepal to contact Explore Himalaya and get themselves spoilt and entertained with their excellent service.
