Chisapani Nagarkot Hike
One of the best hiking treks is Sundarijal to Chisapani, Nagarkot, combines the best of nature with some typical local life, gorgeous Himalayan views, bright sunsets and sunrise from Chisapani and Nagarkot. This hike takes four days. This trip begins with a short drive to Sundarijal, a famous and busy picnic spot in the north of Kathmandu. The hike includes the boundaries of Shivapuri National Park: a palace of cool shades, tall trees, beautiful streams and serene atmosphere, which is in striking contrast to the noise of the crowded city.
The hike trail passes through forest to Chisapani, the destination of the first day. Chisapani is a settlement of Brahmins, Gurungs, and Sherpas. You will have a beautiful view of the large section of the Himalayan range, especially in the setting sunlight.
After trekking through Shivapuri National Park with only occasional settlements, we finally reach Nagarkot, the famous point to the east of Kathmandu. There you will have an extended and spectacular view of the Himalayas, starting from the Dhaulagiri in the west to Mt Everest and Kanchanjunga in the far east. Getting up early in the morning to view the sunrise, you feel the full force of the charming glow the Himalayan range exudes, when the fresh rays of the rising sun strike it. Finally, you can either choose to take a hike to Changunarayan and drive from there to Kathmandu. Or you can also drive directly from there, ending a memorable journey of your life.
