    Budget-Friendly Nagarkot and Chisapani Adventure

    The three-day hike to Chisapani and Nagarkot with Adventure Altitude Treks was a mind-blowing first experience of Nepal. It was my first trekking experience in the Himalayas region, and it was fantastic. The trail, ideal for a trekking beginner, had the most beautiful sight I have ever seen of the mountains. The simplicity of the guesthouses was my favourite thing. I am glad that I booked a helicopter trip to Everest Base Camp along with the Chisapani trek with Adventure Altitude Treks. Soaring above the mountain's peak with giants of the Himalayas gives a feeling that words cannot describe. Simply put, this trip was the perfect blend of adventure and tranquillity. I will certainly suggest it to a person who is desirous of experiencing the magical Nepal with a tinge of luxury.

    A Perfect Weekend on 3 Day Chisapani Nagarkot Route

    I was treated very well during my adventure Chisapani Nagarkot 3 Days Trek with Adventure Altitude Treks. We had some good accommodation at the guest houses, and the food was also nice. We had a guide that was both knowledgeable and kind. He used to say that all those intriguing plants and animals are worth exploring. This route for trekking seemed to have been the exact solution for me after a rather raucous journey. If you want a peaceful and picturesque journey outside Kathmandu, I recommend doing the Chisapani Nagarkot Trek with Adventure Altitude Treks.
