We had a wonderful time on our gap year in Nepal. The Total 48 days in Nepal on our career break trip was meaningful and memorable. Kathmandu city is amazing and vibrant with different cultures of Temples, Stupas and also Mosque. Monkey Temple, Pashupati Crematory Kathmandu Durbar square, Bauddha Nath very famous historical-cultural-heritage sites in Kathmandu. We have visit less-visited local places in Kathmandu and lived with a local family in Bhaktapur for two weeks. Bhaktapur is a completely deep traditional and diverse city on the basis of culture and language. JWAJULAPA PASA :P)After Bhaktapur, we went to trekking to Kalo and Seto kunda.  It was major with two holy lakes  of Nepal which helps to shows the Himalayan beauty of Ganesh Himal. The one who offers for trekking in Kalo and Seto Kunda got a great opportunity to learn and experience typical Tamang and Gurung culture. The trek of Kalo and Seto Kunda was with the guide and he had arranged of vehicles from Kathmandu to Syabrubeshi which takes 8 to 9 hours to reach Syabrubeshi. Syabrubeshi is taken as the gateway to Langtang valley which is situated at the confluence of Bhotekosi River and Langtang Khola. i and my friend will defenately visit again to Kathmandu and we are sure for Social Tourism & Sabbatical Explore Nepal are the best career break trip planner in Nepal.
