Why Spend the Night in Ranikot Village? (Optional)

If the day trip is too short for you, you can choose to stay in the village. Doing this means you’ll have more time with local villagers. Thus, you can enjoy even more activities. You can join them when they are milking the cow or the buffalo. You can also see the village at night and experience first-hand how the typical Nepalese people live in villages. If you wake up early the next day, you can watch the sunrise behind the majestic mountains.
The Ranikot Hiking Day Tour is highly recommended for those who are looking for a peaceful place to spend their holiday. It will not only get you more closer to nature, but it will also allow you to connect with the locals. See life in the eyes of a typical Nepalese villager and spend a day in their shoes!
