Plants are either wild crafted or grown by Nepali farmers in environmentally sound conditions. For most of our products which are wild crafted we offer materials that are harvested in a sound and sustainable manner, or materials that are cultivated without chemicals. We firmly believe we can deliver better products with purity and freshness.
Our tour begins this afternoon in Kathmandu.
After breakfast and a trek briefing, we have arranged a walking tour of the city, visiting the bazaar and temples of old Kathmandu in the company of a local Nepali guide. Nepal's bustling capital is a captivating mix of spice sellers and potters, rickshaws and sacred cows, all crowded together amidst a city of vibrant noise and colour. Our sightseeing this morning takes in the sumptuous majesty of Durbar Square, with its collection of ornate palaces, courtyards and temples that span some three centuries of dynastic rule by Malla, Shah and Rana kings.
Leaving Kathmandu this morning we head along the Prithvi Highway, a journey of some 8 hours that sees us heading north up to the small town of Dhading Besi, at the confluence of the Arung and Thopal Rivers. From here we turn onto a bumpy and dusty dirt road that meanders up to the small settlement of Soti Khola.
