View of Nagarkot

Best popular short hike from Kathmandu.

  • This is one of our very best popular short hike from Kathmandu. Every accessible short and sweet weekend trip anyone can enjoy. Kathmandu, the Capital City of the kingdom of Nepal, is situated in a basin surrounded by a chain of mountain. The Eastern rim of the valley from Nagarkot to Kakani provides an easily accessible and a quick approach to the mountain. The Himalayan view from Mt. Everest in the east to Manaslu and Hiumchuli in the west can be seen throughout the trail. Langtang and Ganesh Himal dominate the skyline on the north. On a clear day, part of the range of Annapurna can be seen. The village dotted on the ridge and foothill of this section of the rim gives a birds eye view of diverse culture. The oak, pine and rhododendron forests give a different view of the fast disappearing forest resource of Nepal.

  • Day 01: Kathmandu – Chisapani – Lodge/ Guest house accommodation

    After breakfast drive to Sundarijal, located on the outskirts of Kathmandu. Along the way, enjoy views of the hilly, forested terrain of the Kathmandu Valley and get acquainted with your fellow travelers as you prepare for your Himalayan adventure.

    After your vehicle arrives at your first destination, hike with your guide up a long staircase that follows the water pipeline to the entrance of Shivapuri National Park. Take in the scenic beauty of your surroundings, where pine and oak forests mix with rhododendrons and a variety of orchids. As you continue your trek along the staircase and past the water reservoir, learn about the unique wildlife that is protected in the park, including sloth bears, leopards, wild boar and Indian porcupine. Listen for a variety of birds and keep an eye out for 150 species of butterflies.

    When your group reaches the village of Mulkharka, your guide will assist you to find a simple lunch in one of the wayside shops. Following a rest with food and tea, head through town, passing an abandoned school on your return to the forest. Here, the steep incline eases and shade offers welcome relief from the warm temperatures. Soon, if the weather cooperates with clear skies, catch your first glimpse of the high, snow-capped Everest ranges of the Himalayan Mountains. After approximately five hours on your first day’s trek, emerge from the wilderness and head into the village of Chisapani. In the evening, experience Nepali culture at an authentic teahouse, where you can have dinner and interact with the locals or just relax in the company of your guide and small group. Overnight: hotel or teahouse lodge in Chisapani

    Day 02: Chisapani – Nagarkot – Lodge/ Guest house accommodation

    After breakfast, prepare to hit the trail for a 7-hour hike, trekking through lush vegetation. You’ll walk both uphill and downhill along dirt tracks, passing through sporadic rural settlements along the way.Take in the magnificent panoramic views of the dramatic and steep Himalayas en route to Nagarkot, situated on the edge of the Kathmandu Valley. When you arrive in the town after a full day of hiking, take the weight off and relax for a leisurely evening. Overnight: hotel or teahouse lodge in Nagarkot

    Day 03: Nagarkot – Changunarayan – Transfer to Hotel in Kathmandu

    Wake up early in Nagarkot to relish the sunrise view for which the town is known, looking out over the distant Himalayas. After breakfast with your small group at the teahouse, hike down toward the medieval town of Bhaktapur, one of three royal villages in the valley. Stop en route at Nepal’s oldest temple, Changu Narayan, located on a high hilltop in the village of Changu. Your guide will point out the magnificent Nepali architecture of metal and wood design, and describe the religious rituals of local Hindus as you peek into the ancient temple. You may even get to meet with monks. Then, follow a scenic route through terraced rice fields, small villages and pine forests, switching back and forth between the wilderness trail and a countryside road for approximately four hours walk. After sometime at Changunarayan Temple area, we then drive to Bhaktapur and to Kathmandu. End of service.
