Chandragiri Tour
My friend insisted that we do this tour instead of Poon Hill Trek because we had very few days in hand. Turned out it was the best decision. Every day was a beautiful day with a great climate and pleasant experience. Not much of a hassle and worry. It was truly a magical experience, and a perfect gift before heading back to normal life.

Chandragiri Trip
I had 6 days left in Kathmandu before I return to California. My friend Ramesh from Bhaktapur who volunteered with me in the rural areas of Nepal suggested I do a trip and not squander the remaining days. I loved the idea and contacted Third Rock Adventures whom I found from a travel blog. I called Naba and had talked at length for the trip. He suggested me this trip to Chandragiri Hills based on my preference and days. I liked the itinerary and headed for the trip the very next day. Although I had explored few parts of Bhaktapur city, this trip introduced me to the vast majority part of Bhaktapur including the Kathmandu and Patan areas. I also got a chance to drive to Chandragiri hills and enjoy the stunning views of the Himalayas from there. The trip was the best choice for me. The tour guide was really good and had a lot of insights into the cities explored. Thanks to Naba and his team for this memorable trip.
