This tour is for those who want to have a taste of short, soft hiking to the Himalayan foot hills without much exertion and without losing comfort and/yet spend a couple of days in the arms of peaceful nature and beautiful mountain scenery.
The hike we choose for this tour is the hike to hill of Dhampus near Pokhara. Dhampus is a ethnic village at the top of a forested ridge offering a close view of a long range of Himalayan panorama including mt Fishtail, Annapurnas, Machapuchhare, Hiunchuli , Dhaulagiri etc. It is accessible after one hour of drive and three hours of hike , making it ideal destination even for family groups or elderly people. We keep you in clean , well run family inns with attached private bath in the mountain.
Before we do Dhampus, we would offer you a tour of heritage sites in Kathmandu and a tour in the relaxing lake town of Pokhara, where we take you for a visit to a waterfall and cave and boating on the Phewa lake and leave free for rest of the time to enjoy on your own.
