Firstly we explore the exhilarating city of Kathmandu.  Watch the sunrise from Swayambhu, the ancient religious complex, witness cremations at The Hindu Temple of Pashupatinath and visit Boudhanath Stupa  the most ancient and historical landmark in Kathmandu.  This city is unlike anywhere I have ever been before – I love it and could spend days just watching people go about their everyday lives.
We then leave all the hustle and bustle behind us and head towards Bhimkhori where we hike up to a remote village beneath the foothills of the Himalayas.  If peace and solidarity is what you are after, this is the place.  This is not a tourist area but the locals will welcome us into their lives, cook traditional meals for us, allow us to run through their villages and then play their homemade instruments as we dance Nepali style under the stars.  You will fit so much into a few days.  It will blow your mind.
