Kathmandu Valley and Nagarkot tour are Lots of the history of dates back to ancient times. Traced between the period 167 BC and 1 AD, archaeological explorations indicate that Kathmandu and the two other sister towns in the valley are the oldest towns. Excavations conducted at Hadaigaon and Lubhu in the southern part of the valley, in Kathmandu, have unearthed brick walls and Stone Age tools. The geological setting of the valley points to the existence of a lake near Chobar gorge on the Bagmati River, below the present Pashupatinath Temple, which was a pilgrimage place during the period of the Buddha. Manjushree Bodhisattva, a Buddhist Saint, drained this lake by cutting open an outlet in the southern rim of the valley. People started cultivating here and building their homes as the valley that was created was fertile. Manjushree is also said to have worshipped the Swayambhunath on the hillock where the present Swayambhunath temple is located. He is also the founder of the city of Manjupatan, which today falls within the present Kathmandu Metropolitan area, located between Swayambhunath and Gujeswari near the airport. Dharmakara a disciple of Manjushree was declared the ruler of that city by him. It is also said that Krakuchanda Budhha, Kanak Muni Buddha and Kashyapa Buddha visited the Kathmandu valley to worship Swayambhu and Gujeshwari, following the establishment of this city. The king of Gaur, Prachanda Deva built the Swayambhu stupa encasing the eternal flame and his nephew Gunakadeva was anointed as the king of Nepal. Singhakhetu, the last ruler of his dynasty brought prosperity to the kingdom. Subsequent to the rule of the Gunakadeva dynasty, rulers from India, particularly from Bengal and then Madras province ruled Kathmandu. Dharma Dutta of Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu is cited as the builder of Pashupatinath Temple. This was followed by the reign of Abhir dynasty of eighth rulers and Kiratis said to be originally of the  North Eastern hill region of India. Their succession of 29 rulers reigned here until the Lichavis came into power.s of tourists to Nepal have often likened the country’s scenery to postcard pictures. It’s not an exaggeration, not by any means. What’s more, you don’t need to go too far from the busy city of Kathmandu either to see such scenery. One of the best places for this is undoubtedly Nagarkot. There are many who wish to have a retreat here, so magnificent are the views all around. In fact, a surefire method to impress visitors fast is to take them to Nagarkot, a mere 32-km east of the capital. The road starts climbing from Bhaktapur and just keeps on climbing through verdant forests on the hillsides. A lovely drive, even if a bit scary sometimes, especially when a big tourist bus is coming your way, blocking most of the narrow road. Otherwise, it’s a drive that will make tourists exclaim, “At last! This is what I came to Nepal for.” And, once they experience the joy of sunrise from Nagarkot, they’ll be returning with memories to last a lifetime. It’s a sight that can leave you mesmerized—the color of the sky changes rapidly from black to purple to different hues of red and orange behind the magnificent Himalayan peaks.

Pokhara is a city of close to 2,500,000 inhabitants in central Nepal located at 28.25°N, 83.99°E, and 198 km west of Kathmandu. It is the third largest city of Nepal after Kathmandu & Biratnagar. It is the Headquarters of Kaski District, Gandaki Zone, and the Western Development Region. Pokhara is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal. It is also known as the Tourist capital of Nepal, noted for its tranquil atmosphere and the beauty of the surrounding countryside. Three out of the ten highest mountains in the world can be viewed very closely from Pokhara. It is also a base for trekkers undertaking the Annapurna Circuit.

Don’t hesitate to choose Pokhara for your holiday tour trip. It’s really a feeling of peace and beautiful place and can have spiritually relaxation. Pokhara there are so many beautiful things like Lake, Mountain, White Mountain, Rafting, Boating, Cave, Underground Waterfall, Museums, River Gorge, Sunrise, Paragliding, Trekking etc. The climate is sub-tropical but due to the elevation, the temperatures are moderate: the summers usually have a bearable 30-35oC, the winter’s averages around 15oC and only 800m above from sea level.

The sleepy lakeside town of Pokhara is encircled by the spectacular mountain scenery of the Annapurna Range (including Machhapuchare (Fishtail Mountain) and enjoys a lazy and relaxed atmosphere.

It is the main starting point for day walks or longer forays amongst the mountains.

Alternatively, wandering up and down the main street, boating on Phewa Lake, browsing in the many book shops or enjoying a meal in one of the many restaurants is a less energetic option.

  • Dammaru Niraula was our guide and confidant for our recent visit to Nepal. We went on a humanitarian visit to build a hothouse in the village of Phortse in the Khumbu region of Nepal but also included some trekking on a personal level before and after our project. Dammaru was a vital link in getting the project off the ground and then as a support person in Nepal before, during and after. He completed the following tasks with the utmost professionalism and patience. Arranged transfer of a large number of funds from Australian bank account to Nepalese bank account. Communications with the village before we arrived to ensure the walls were built. Organized our itinerary and necessary bookings for the trekking part of our journey for 8 adults. Once we arrived in Nepal he then assisted us in purchasing all the gear we needed for the finishing of the hothouse. e.g. Polycarbonate roof sheeting and the many other bits of hardware necessary. Transport of the roofing etc to Phortse village via helicopter, plane, yak, and porter. As well as being a part of the project Dammaru also was our trekking guide for the duration of our trip of 5 weeks. He organized everything for us from the hotel, in Kathmandu and everything in between our trek to base camp. He is honest, reliable and always puts the customer first. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dammaru to anyone who is considering a trip to Nepal.

  • Dammaru Niraula Trekking Guide Trip Leader I have had an association with Dammaru over the last three years. My first trek with Dammaru was to the Solu Khumbu region where he tailored a trek to suit our request to climb some remote passes and stay off the main tourist routes where possible. His knowledge of the area was very impressive and his attention to our safety was always his major concern. The second trek I did with Dammaru two years later. This trip was the culmination of a long term project to build hothouses in a village deep into the Solu Khumbu region. www.himalyanhothouse.org To complete this project Dammaru had a pivotal role in developing contacts, sourcing materials helping to manage the project finances. During the preparations for the Hothouse project, we found Dammaru to be honest, prompt and very hardworking. He also showed a great understanding of our requests and needs for the project to be successful. During the trek, itself Dammaru co-ordinated seven of our group and six porters as well as an extra climbing guide. He also acted as a very effective interpreter and liaison with the people of the village of Phortse. On a personal level, Dammaru is the most genuine man with a big heart. He shared the passion for our project and its humanitarian ideals. Once again our safety during the whole trek was his main concern. A phrase often used by Dammaru sums up his professional work ethic. Service is most important. I would not hesitate to recommend the services of Dammaru Niraula if you plan to undertake a trek or similar activity in Nepal.

  • Dear Dammaru I have been trekking to Ghorepani poon hill on Jan 07 for 6 days with Mr. Dammaru. Poonhill is so beautiful, so all I can do is just taking pictures on poon hill. If you were planning to trek in Nepal, I would recommend you as one choice. His personality and professional guide skill makes me fun of Trekking and Nepal. so I am planning to go to Nepal again this August. He may meet all demand of you request on your trekking trip even though you join in the big group.  Because he has more over 10 years experience of  trekking guide for Many English and Japanese speaker. Actually, I have never met such a good Japanese speaker guide and I had no chance to speak in English with him. I can recommend him to all people who need great experience guide with English or Japanese. so you can get satisfaction for a great guide. Very Thanks,

  • I was a member of a group of nine friends from Northamptonshire in 204 from the UK, on a trek of the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal. Apart from one member, we were all approaching or over the age of 60 and were all well aware of the difficulties we could encounter at Thorong La which sits at an altitude of 5,416 meters (17,769 feet). Our group was led by Dammaru Niraula and we were most impressed by his leadership qualities. He introduced us gently to the lower altitudes and gradually encouraged us on longer and more arduous days of trekking. At Manang, he encouraged us to take a day trek up the lower slopes of Gangapurna and Annapurna III (see my photo below) and afterward to attend an altitude safety lecture in Manang. We are all convinced that, without his careful attention to altitude safety, we would not all have completed the trek over Thorong La and some of us at least would have joined the many trekkers who are forced to descend suffering from altitude sickness. We will always be eternally grateful to Dammaru and his team of Sherpas. Like many Nepalese, Dammaru has a very quiet and gentle nature with a keen sense of humor and fun. At first, he appears to be shy and reserved but is constantly attending to the needs of his guests, assessing their temperaments and abilities and adjusting the itinerary accordingly. After a few days in his care, you come to realize that you are in the hands of an experienced, competent and understanding mountain guide. I can recommend him too highly and know that he will continue to offer excellent trekking facilities in the Himalayas.

  • My husband and I embarked on a trip to Nepal in October 2006. We were hoping to avoid the large tour groups and were referred to Himalayan Holidays based in Kathmandu as a provider of customized tours. We had looked on the net to determine the tour we wanted to undertake and spoke to many people and eventually decided 6-day on Ghorepani Poon Hill trek. We live in a plain and therefore training for the trek was a challenge in itself. We spent our weekends climbing up and down a 700metre high hill that was regarded as sufficiently steep for our training needs. However, we were unsure of what to expect in Nepal and were concerned about our levels of fitness for the trek that we had in mind. We were introduced to our guide, Dammaru at the hotel we were staying in Kathmandu and our anxieties were quickly alleviated. This diminutive gentleman exuded confidence and assured us that he was able to accommodate our individual fitness levels and ensure that our time in his country was hassle free. And indeed he did! Without it being particularly noticeable, Dammaru controlled the tempo of our daily treks in order that the enjoyment factor always exceeded any physical discomfort. His relationship with the locals was both real & genuine which meant we never felt like intruders or uncomfortable in their presence. Dammaru's keen negotiation skills with the local tea house proprietors' meant the delay between arriving & unwinding from the challenges of our daily treks was minimal with the accommodation always being appropriate to our needs. His professionalism was faultless. He provided us with a wealth of information on all aspects of the history, culture, flora, and fauna of this remarkable country. Not only was he a fantastic guide, but his cheeky grin and sense of humor ensured Dammaru to be a fantastic traveling companion. Our dealings with Dammaru exceeded all expectations and we hope to make a return visit to this stunningly beautiful country.
