I was drawn to Balthali Village Resort by the promise of “off the beaten track” adventure. I found this and more! I leave reluctantly after 6 days enchanted by the friendliness and openess of the Nepali People. I will never forget Balthali and the first thing I will do after my visit s start planning the next one.
Bathali treks take you through Kathmandu valley and are ideal for families or those wanting a soft multi-day hike. You start and end in Kathmandu, meandering past Buddhist temples and rural hamlets including the lovely Bathali village, which sits on a plateau amid terraced rice fields and dusty red coloured thatched farmhouses. In between, glimpses of the snowy Himalayan peaks and swathes of bright-green forest greet you. Overall, this is a relaxing area to trek and remains relatively uncrowded compared to more popular routes in Nepal. Treks take anywhere between three to six days and can be done year-round, but avoid rainy July and August and hyper-cold December through January.
