Short trek
Hiking to Chisapani and Nagarkot

Chisapani is a popular mountain view spot about 5 hours walk from Sundarijal.This cool and beautiful place offers clos e view of eastern himalaya ranges.Nagarkot is another vew point in this route.Changunarayan which we cover on this hike is the oldest temple in the Kathmandu valley built in 5th century and a UNESCO declared world heritage site.

This is one of the least frequented areas at the Kathmandu Valley rim. It offers a rich insight into the lives, history, religion and daily existence of its inhabitants. The valley rim varies between around 1000m and 2,800m. In the spring, early autumn and winter it offers wonderful mountain vistas, stretching from Everest in the east to Annapurna in the west.

The trek itself is not vigorous except on the first day a long uphill haul on the winding path through the farm villages, after Chisapani the walk is on the gradual path with ample time to immerse in the wonderful landscapes and its awesome scenery all the way to Nagarkot and to our final destination at Changunarayan Temple area (World Heritage Site) one of the most important ancient Temple perched on the hillock just above Baktapur area. After a wonderful time in the mid hills an hour drive brings you back to Kathmandu.
