More Fact Less fact

Our Balthali Village Trek is a condensed package of 8 days into the rural area, just 40km southeast from Kathmandu. The paramount significance of Balthali Village Treks can be jotted down by the very fact of Lonely Planet listing Balthali Village Treks as the world’s best multi- day trek without high altitudes.

Balthali is a pretty little Village nestled amid the confluence of roaring Roshi and Ladkhu Rivers at the plateau just on the other side of Panauti Village. Besides offering the countryside aura through terraced paddy fields and mud houses with thatched roof where cattle are kept adjoining to the house, Balthali Village is famed for the fascinating mountain views of Dorje Lakpa, Langtang and other several Mountain Ranges including Manaslu Mountain and Mount Everest towards the northern vista.

Balthali Village Treks at Adventure Himalayan Travels commences by taking a drive towards UNESCO enlisted World Heritage Site of Changunarayan which marks the initiation of trekking. The trek continues through Nagarkot, Dhulikhel and the marvellous Namobuddha Premises to the fabulous Balthali Village. While in Balthali, remember to try the fresh fish caught from Ladku Khola.

The contribution of Balthali Village towards promoting village tourism in Nepal cannot and must not go unnoticed.
