If you have a spare day in Kathmandu, and are looking for an easy day hike then the Ranikot Village day hike is the best choice. We are saying Ranikot Village Day Hike is the best choice because it’s not easy to see the authentic lifestyle of Nepalese people which hasn’t changed yet. The hike is not even far from Kathmandu which is just above Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Obviously the snow-capped peaks are the major highlight for the hike. 

Most of our clients loved this place and extended their stay with the family because of their warm hospitality. We can pluck vegetables from their farm which are organic and cook in their kitchen, it’s the best way to engage with the locals. The House is neat and clean even having a cattles next to their house. We can see Buffalo, Cow, Goat and very playful dogs at their place. The house owner had worked in the Tourism industry for decades so he knows how to greet and treat the customers. 

Very few people know about the Ranikot Rayaley Village day hiking routes but we can see other operators are also offering this hike. Day Tours Nepal is a sister concern of Day Trip Planner Tour Company of Rugged Trails Nepal that has discovered this trip package to help the local community. We had helped a family in this village after the earthquake to rebuild their house and also we are helping primary school with volunteers. 

You can see in our video about the hike and  how the place looks like. From the Cultural Heritage City Bhaktapur, greenery farmland, forest, amazing Mountain Ranges (Mt. Gaurishanker, Ganesh, langtang, Annapurana), unchanged lifestyle, foods and many more.  For Ranikot Village Day hike Trip we will pick up from your chosen Place (hotel, restaurant, AirBNB) inside Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur at the same cost. The drive is about 30 - 40 min from Kathmandu and we start our hike to Ranikot village through the green forest (during March, April we can see Rhododendron flowers). It’s an easy day hike for all age groups because we can change the style of hike. There are no other day hiking trips from Kathmandu that can offer authentic lifestyle experiences of Typical Nepalese. We got great reviews and compliments from our customers so be the one to experience this Ranikot Village Day Hike.
