Tours – Trips – Activities


Cooking Class

Nepalese cuisine is simple, but delicious. You may have tried “dal bhat” or momos and may be wondering how it is prepared. The cooking class provides hands-on training, so that you will be able to prepare real Nepalese dishes when you return. After cooking it, you can eat what you have prepared.

Kathmandu Valley day hike

Tired of the chaos of the city? Then it’s time to visit the rural outskirts of the valley. The valley rim offers many interesting hiking opportunities depending on your fitness level, interests and the time of year you want to visit Nepal. Let ‘s choose a day hike that suits you from the following options: Jhule – Nagarkot – Nala / Dhulikhel – Namobuddha / Hattiban to Champa Devi / Shivapuri park – Nagi Gomba – Shivapuri peak – Kopan / Gurje bhanjyang-Shivapuri-Tarebhir / Nagarkot-Dhulikhel /Gurje bhanjyang – Kakani / Jamacho peak / Ranikot to Pulchowki. We’ll arrange a guide, transportation and a picnic.

Mountainbiking

After picking up the mountain bikes we make our way to the edge of the valley, where we find hills, smaller villages and many unpaved roads. In addition to the daily activities of Nepalese villagers, we will see many Buddhist monasteries and Hindu temples. If you are lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the Himalayas.

          

Trail running

We start with a short drive to reach the northern edge of the valley, where there is less traffic and beautiful hiking trails. The route from Kopan Monastery towards Fullbari Gompa and Rastryia Shahid Park in Gokarna is really beautiful and guarantees good views over the valley.

The valley rim tour

Just 2.5 km from ViaVia, the Kopan Monastery sits on a hill on the northern edge of the Kathmandu Valley. From here we continue to the foothills of Shivapuri Park, Gokarna Sahid Smarak Park and Gokarna Mahadev Temple. From the temple you can then continue walking towards an orphanage or return to ViaVia.

UNESCO sites

From ViaVia we walk through small alleys and lesser- known monasteries towards the Bouddhanath Stupa. We will visit a thangka school, and make the kora around the stupa. After the visit, we continue on foot to the holy temple of Pashupatinath, 1,5 km from the stupa. We will see many monkeys and many holy Saddhu men near the river. After visiting Pashupathinath, we return to ViaVia, with a short detour to the Charumati Stupa.

Himalaya from Nagarkot + Bhaktapur

The best place to enjoy the sunrise over the Himalayas is Nagarkot at an altitude of 2140 m. You set off early in the hope of experiencing a beautiful 180-degree perspective of the Himalayas, including Mt. Everest. After breakfast in Nagarkot, hike to one of the older temples in Kathmandu Valley: Changu Narayan. In the afternoon you will visit the former royal city of Bhaktapur and it’s many beautiful squares before returning to ViaVia.

Kathmandu valley heritage tour

A treasure trove of cultural wonders, Nepal’s rich diversity requires travelers to prioritize and focus on specific sites. In Kathmandu Valley you could easily spend a week immersing yourself in the countless well-known and lesser- known sites. We recommend that you reserve three days for the following UNESCO World Heritage Sites : : Boudhanath, Pashupatinath, Changu Narayan, Swayumbunath, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, and Kathmandu Durbar Square. Choose three per day and let us organize a guide and transport!
