Chisapani Nagarkot Trek
Two friends of mine and I took this 3 day trek, led by Dipak Pande! I would recommend to everyone who loves hikes through a variety of landscapes. You get taken through a national park, along peaks/ through the villages up there and through farm land. The accommodation always had an amazing view from the top and Dipak was well organised and was great company.
Definitely one of my favourite memories of being in Nepal!
