We had amazing time in Nepal doing this tour. It took us to rustic area on the vicinity of Kathmandu where we visited the Dakshinkali mandir. We got to learn so many stuff about Nepali people, their culture and religious belief. Our tour guide was amazing person with wealth of knowledge. We did Nagarkot tour after completing this tour on recommendation of Naba.
