At first we'll get to the highest point of Kathmandu valley (2700m) - Phulchowki (translated as "Hill of Flowers" from Nepalese). There is a military base, but at the very top of the hill - an ancient sanctuary. We will ask for permission to enter and explore this sacred place along with spectacular view over Kathmandu valley and its surroundings. If weather allows, we will have midblowing view over Himalayas!

From here we will follow an ancient path through rhododendron forest and head to Tamang village - native folk, inhabiting this area. They live a simple lifestyle and are always welcoming to their guests. When we reach the village we'll have lunch with one of the families, learn their traditions, try local delicacies cooked on a hearth - a centerpiece of the house. It's a unique opportunity to see rural Nepal with its traditions and culture.

After a hearty meal we'll go down a country road to the river. Our path lies through small villages and gardens, where we could observe Tamagan's life, habits and traditional clothes. On the way back to Kathmandu we will stop at Panauti - ancient town that is currently listed as a UNESCO tentative site since 1996.
