Trip Reviews

Panorama Nagarkot Trek
Erin & Friends
5 - Excellent
03/12/2013

The day tour we did with Discovery World Trekking was well worth the early morning rise and great value for money. The view from the top of the mountain was spectacular and we were above the mist! The trek back down offered many sights including small villages and houses resting on the mountainside. Our guide was great and we went at our own pace. we would highly reccomend a day tour with Discovery World Trekking!
