  • 4000 rupees with a guide, 2000 rupees without a guide just to see a pollute valley below. 100% not worth it. There must be a better way to spend the day.

  • Best place for hiking, totally different than other places. This is absolutely inside jungle and rivers. The waterfall you'll see just after getting inside and the whole way. You'll have river by your side. That's mesmerising. I recommend to go with groups of friends.
  • One of the best place for hike lovers. Personally for me it's number 1 among near hiking places in Kathmandu. Needs tickets for entering the national park but you can avoid that by taking the tarebhir route but for first timers I recommend the main gate cause it's much safer and not confusing. Happy Hiking. 🤗
