What you'll do

Champa Devi is a magnificent hill located to the south of Kathmandu valley, best for the short enjoyable hike. Champa Devi Hiking starts with one hour drive to the village of Pharping (19 km) on the way to Dakshinkali temple (a temple of goddess Kali). Leaving the Pharping village, the trial directs us the way through the pine forest.
Champa Devi Hill is situated at an elevation of 2,285m, having Buddhist and Hindu shrine on the top. After the 3 hours motivating walk, we summit the top. Enjoy the superb view of central and western Himalayan range including Langtang, Gauri Shanker, Jugal, Dorge Lakpa and many other. Apart from that you get the chance to admire the bustling Kathmandu valley and its dense settlement.

We were taken for the trek by Karma and Sundar. Both of them were very pleasant and funny. The conversations with them throughout the trek was very insightful. The trek itself was pretty steep and a bit challenging, requiring a basic level of fitness (i should go to the gym more often). But Karma and Sundar encourage you all the way up to ensure you push all the way up. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

This is a great hike when you have a day off and like to see the beautiful landscape outside of Kathamandu! Nima is a very experienced mountaineer and shares a lot about climbing the mountains in Nepal. This hike is not too difficult and accessible to most people.
