9781466261143: Trekking The Kathmandu Valley Rim and Beyond

This trail is an attractive option for people with time to spare in Kathmandu, perhaps before a flight home or if a 'banda', a regional or national strike, brings vehicle transport to a standstill. Generally, it is a way to escape from the city, if only for a 3-4 day excursion. Sensational Himalayan panoramas complement the relatively fresher air once you reach the Shivapuri Ridge, to the northeast of the valley, and beyond. Lodging facilities are available along the route, with camping and home stay possibilities, too. Also included are descriptions to Kathmandu valley’s two highest summits, Shivapuri (8963 feet, 2732 m) to the north, considered a sacred hangout of the Hindu deity Shiva, and Phulchowki (9039 feet, 2755 m) to the south which means “Flower Fortress”. Both mountains are lavishly camouflaged in vegetation and offer magnificent vistas of the valley and the snowy Himalaya beyond. -COMPREHENSIVE, COMPACT AND EASY TO USE -PRACTICAL INFORMATION AND COUNTRY BACKGROUND -DETAILED ROUTE DESCRIPTIONS -EASY TO USE MAPS FOR KATHMANDU AND ALL NEPAL -VISA, PERMIT, HEALTH, AND GEAR DETAILS PLUS RECOMMENDATIONS -RESPONSIBLE TOURISM GUIDELINES -USEFUL WEB LINKS -COMPLETE TREK PLANNING REFERENCE -COVER PAINTING BY NICHOLAS ROERICH
