When I am in the mountain, I crave for solitude and quiet. Sharing the space with loads of tourists is not my scene. That’s the reason why I steer clear of most of the popular trails. When I enquired for a trek with TRA this was my major requirement - a trail which is not crowded and places which is not in the average tourist’s itinerary. Naba was quick to recommend me the Khopra Ridge Trek. The timeframe was ideal for my holiday and the trek looked like what I had in mind. Moreover it felt good to know that I would be helping the local communities and the needy porters by booking this trip. The highlight of this trek was of course the hike to Khayer Lake. Being a sacred lake, there was certain energy around the lake which was calming and soothing. This is such a great place to meditate if you are into meditation. Depak, our guide was experienced enough to manage the pace according to our speed. He was knowledgeable and gave us time to take in the views without interrupting or hurrying us. The views throughout the trek are great. If you are looking for a trek to unwind and be at one with nature this is a great trek. And yes this company is highly recommended!
Newari people and their daily lifestyle allured me. I was in Patan a week ago with Third Rock. This one day tour to Patan is amazing. I explored the beautiful city of Patan in just a day. Thanks to Third rock, for creating this day tour, I was exactly looking for this trip. I had few days before I could resume my work and had to explore Patan. I wanted to shoot some fantastic shot of Patan city and the amazing people living there. Patan Durbar Sqaure was calling me ever since I happened to see some pictures on Instagram and finally did it. I am coming to Nepal in few months with my best friends again, and this time, it will be a week vacation in Kathmandu and the Himalayas of Nepal. See You Soon Nepal!
Spent a day in Kathmandu valley... exploring Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Changu Narayan Temple. While my husband was on a trip with his college friends, I wanted to skip my work-day and visit Nepal. I had heard alot about Kathmandu and Nepal, always wanting to go there and finally I did it. It kinda feels amazing traveling far from home but what keeps you excited is the trust-worthy Travel Agency, who would work for you and your satisfaction and Third Rock rocked here. I am surprised how they operate trips and I could feel every team member who was connected with me for my trip to Kathmandu. And for this I am thankful for them for making my one-day tour a fantastic tour. If I have to talk about Kathmandu, it is chaotic but a must-visit city. You can literally spot temples and monasteries around every corner- how amazing! I wandered around the corner Patan and Bhaktapur, people called them ancient cities, and loved to see everything coming to surprise me. People were ever smiling and greeting namaste! Loved it. I am pretty sure I will visit Kathmandu again with my husband.
I was in KTM for a day to explore the beauty of Patan Durbar Square and Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Strolled around the ancient city of Patan and Bhaktapur brimming with histories and culture around every corners. People there wore traditional newari attire and I loved to see them. Namaste and Namaste were heard every time I greeted them with the same word. I love the word, Namaste. My day-tour guide was fantastic, she explained every little details of the tour, the city and the people. I could capture hundreds of never-seen religious stuff. In a nutshell, this trip was awesone. A day well spent in the heart of Nepal.
