There are several vibrant villages along the way as well, thus taking a short break offers diverse religious and cultural aspect of the people’s lives. Diverse landscapes, rich cultural experience and excellent mountain panoramic views along the hike make the Chisapani Nagarkot Trekking fabulous among several trekking routes in Nepal.
The trek begins with a short 1-hour drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal. Walk along rough trails that enter through the Shivapuri National Park via a watershed and lose your worries to the sound of bird’s melodies filling up the ambiance. The woodlands surrounding the trekking path offers a beautiful experience of being close to nature and the park’s biodiversity is also a prominent notable feature. The views of the Himalayan peaks stay to provide a beautiful foreground to the green terrain as the hiking trail descends down to Chisapani. Trekkers are presented with the experience of viewing the mountain peaks in a most comfortable setting while hiking to Chisapani.
From Chisopani, the trail heads to the south following the ridges to Nagarkot - the most popular viewpoint. The way to Nagarkot is even more flawless with the best views of the mountain peaks and the abundance of green foliage. In pleasant weather, an extended portion of the mountain chain is clearly visible starting from the Dhaulagiri in the west to Mt. Everest and Kanchenjunga. Finally, we take a hike to Changunarayan and drive from there to Kathmandu, ending a memorable journey of your life.
