 Trekking in Nepal DVD - Everest Base Camp Trek - Kathmandu city tour - Rough travel guide

Our tour guide of Nepal begins at it's Capital city, Kathmandu, renowned for its numerous temples and tourist hotspots. We venture to the ancient city of Bhaktapur, a popular hotspot for day trips made by people staying in Kathmandu. Situated 5 kilometres from Kathmandu is Pashupatinath temple.

PAL version of this title also available.

Amazon customer review: "I am planning a trip to Nepal, so i was shopping around for DVDs, i bought this one. Its great, there is about 20 minutes dedicated to the everest base camp trek alone! Perfect! Give a good idea what the terrain will be like. WHat you can buy in the shops along the way and so on.
The rest of the DVD covers the city of kathmandu. And the chitwan national park,seems ok, crocs, rhinos etc.. a bit of a drive from kathmandu though! Maybe i'll go there on my next trip!"

So a well recommended DVD for those wanting to tread across the Neap terrain and one that will show you what's in store for you on your journey.
