The Nagarkot Chisapani Trek is a perfect weekend (or weekday) getaway in the Kathmandu valley. Just a short drive from the city limits of Kathmandu takes you to the little hilltop paradise. On the trail, pass traditional villages and verdant forests to the scenic hilltop viewpoint of Nagarkot (2,175 meters). Walking along the ridge of the valley, become faced with gorgeous mountain views, including some of the most famous in the world.

On the outskirts of the Kathmandu Valley, there are some real treasures and inspiring mountain views. The trail lies within Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park – a well-preserved natural landscape in Nepal’s middle hills. The villages along the route add a lot of cultural value to the experience.

The trail starts in Sundarijal after a pleasant drive from your hotel in Kathmandu. Begin hiking through the watershed area of Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park towards Chisapani. The watershed creates a fertile area with abundant vegetation and wildlife. During the day, we pass through the village of Mulkharka, a Tamang-dominated village. We have a rest here to spend time with this kind-hearted group of people.

To Nagarkot we go! This is the highlight of our trek. The view from Lookout Tower is one that will remain with you for the rest of your life. Even before the lookout tower you will be exposed to a gorgeous Himalayan panorama. In the far east, see Mount Everest and Kanchenjunga. In the west, Dhaulagiri stands tall. This are three of the world’s highest peaks! In between these behemoths lie Ganesh Himal, Langtang Lirung, Shisha Pangma, Dorje Lakpa and Gauri Shankar.

It is a truly breathtaking view. For even more splendour, wake up before the sunrises and watch the first light of the day strike the peaks. The gold, orange, and red glow of the mountains is almost supernatural. Try to bring some binoculars for a close-up view or a camera to attempt to capture the beauty. From here, we descend along a ridge to Changu Narayan, an UNESCO World Heritage site and Hindu temple – one of the oldest in the valley.Built in 323 AD by King Hari Datta Varma, the temple is decorated with ornate sculptures and shrines.

The Nagarkot Chisapani Trek is perfect for a family outing as well as a solo journey. The trail is easy and still confronts trekkers with crisp mountain views. Besides the trail being relaxed, the altitude on the trail will not be an issue.

This package combines perfectly with the Kathmandu Valley Tour or a visit to Bhaktapur or Dhulikhel. Let us know if you have any questions!

You can take the Nagarkot Chisapani Trek all throughout the year. The best times to make the trip, though, are during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons. These seasons provide the best weather and clearest skies, not to mention that during the springtime, beautiful flowers are in bloom. Third Eye Adventure Pvt. Ltd. handles the trek with complete management. If you have any questions about the trek, do ask!
