I did a one day hiking from Kakani to Gurje Bhanjyangwith Birendra Duwadi as a guide. We had a wonderful experience during our hiking in Phulchowki. Gurje Bhanjyang Birendra had arranged transport from Kathmandu and it all went very smoothly. The scenery was very lovely. Birendra is a guide with very knowledgeable about Nepal, the culture, nature. Thank you for giving us a memorable experience.
