Chisapani Nagarkot hiking is well combined of Himalaya range, Shivapuri national park, culture and rural villages though it is joined with Kathmandu.  It is also popular of green forest, wild animal and domestic life to see along the trail.  The view from Chisapani can be seen Annapurna, Manaslu, Ganesh himal, Lantang ri, Dorje Lakpa and many more. You will never forget the best sun set and sun rise from Nagarkot with panoramic view of Himalayas including Mount Everest.


Our short journey -first day begins from Sundarijal.  After entering through Shivapuri National Park, we ascend to top of the hill through Mulpani Kharka about two hours and walk downhill 45 minutes to Chisapani. The weather in Chisapani is always cold as its name is Chisapani, meaning “cold water” in Nepali where you will enjoy the real boon of nature being away from the noise of Kathmandu feeling better to be away from crowded busy city life and your interaction with the local people will add another experience. Walking through jungle and hearing bird chirpings to Lapsi Phedi from Chisapani is a pleasurable excursion.

Our second day begins with wilderness area and quiet naatural route to Jule chowki. We have lunch break in Jule or Chauki Bhanjyang village after walking 3 hours from Chisapani and after having lunch hiking continues to Nagarkot, the beautiful village full of standard hotels, lodges and resorts. Early sunrise view from Nagarkot is the most fascinating and mesmerizing view reflecting rays of sun to White Mountains. Nagarkot with the height of 2195 meter from sea level is on the edge of the valley and offers superb views of the mountains as well as Kathmandu valley.

On third day, we walk down to Tikot and Changunarayan temple. Along with this you visit the temple at Changunarayan, one of the oldest Hindu temples in Nepal which offers you to have a peek observation of the religious practice of Nepali people.

Traveler Reviews

"I went to Nepal 3 times and all use Tej's service. Tej and Kumar were very good and helpful. We would use the service again."


Jun Tuntivivat

Bangkok, Thailand
I really enjoyed during this short trekking to Chisapani- Nagarkot. The guide “Thal” is very kind and experienced. This is very good because most important thing is to share the silence of nature for me!!! The most beautiful part of this trip has been the Jungle part after Chisapani. Nobody was there, only me, the guide and the nature. The hotels were very simple in Chisapani but food was really good. Thanks a lot for your cooperation.
