Dhulikhel Nagarkot Chagunarayan Hiking reviews

Dan Pear

Having been to Nepal twice over the past few years, and spent time with Chandra on both occasions, I would highly recommend him as a guide and a friend. He is a lovely bloke who makes sure his clients are well catered for in every sense. We had a really nice short trek with Chandra in the Kathmandu Valley, walking for a few days from Nagarkot to Dhulikhel. He was always willing to share stories and experiences from his past as well as his views on Nepal and the wider world.

Once back in Kathmandu he was available to give us advice about what to do and where to go, as well as taking us to a restaurant for a Nepali meal! If I ever (fingers crossed) make it back to Nepal, I would definitely get in touch with him again. Thanks for all yours help mate, stay in touch.
