What you'll do

Combining the best of nature with some typical local life, gorgeous Himalayan views, captivating sunset and ethereal sunrise from Chisapani and Nagarkot, this hike makes for an ideal vacation in a matter of three days. The trip starts with a short drive to Sundarijal, a popular hangout and busy picnic spot in the north of Kathmandu. Falling inside the boundaries of Shivapuri National Park, this is a place of cool shades, tall trees, beautiful streams and serene atmosphere — all in striking contrast to the noise and crowd of the city.

Leaving aside a few settlements on the way, the hike trail passes through forest to Chisapani, the destination of the first day. Chisapani is a mixed settlement of Brahmins, Gurungs, and Sherpas. The village also commands a beautiful view of the large section of the Himalayan range, which emits an ethereal glow in the setting sunlight.

All along the forest through Shivapuri National Park with only occasional settlements, we reach Nagarkot, the most popular vantage point to the east of Kathmandu. In clear weather, an extended portion of the Himalayas, starting from the Dhaulagiri in the west to Mt Everest and Kanchanjunga in the far east glue your eyes to them. Wake up early in the morning to view the sunrise. Only now do you feel the full force of the charming glow the Himalayan range exudes, when the fresh rays of the rising sun strike it.
