Leisure time during your adventure travel in Nepal

The day before your actual trekking trip starts can be spent exploring the city of Kathmandu. During the trip there will be two resting days which you can use for relaxing. On “hiking days” you usually reach the next camp at 4pm so you can spend the rest of the day sitting with your fellow course participants, talking about the adventures of the day or exploring the surrounding area.
