Beautiful Short Trek

Ama Yangri Trek is the best short trek from Kathmandu. I was not planning for this trek. My friend from Nepal suggested me this short trek and I couldn't say no. Doing this trek with Third Rock I absolutely enjoyed this trek. I customized it a bit. It was a great trek. Hopefully, this trek will be among the best trek in Nepal.

Beautiful Trek

My travel consultant recommended this recently introduced trek to Ama Yangri. My son and I headed to Kathamndu and ascended the yangri peak to enjoy mesmerizing views from up there. The trek took us to some beautiful village near Kathmandu valley. It's an easy trek and amazing as well.
