The day hike to Champadevi from Pharping is one of the pleasant one-day hikes, south-west of the Kathmandu valley. Our actual hike begins from near Pharping after an hour's drive from Kathmandu. From there we hike continuously uphill all the way to Champadevi about 3-4 hours through the lush green forest. As we get higher the view is spectacular. We see great numbers of Himalayan peaks including the Annapurna range, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Jugal Himal range and, on a clear day, Mt. Everest and the surrounding valley. Champadevi is a small Hindu deity shrine. At certain times, quite a number of Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims go there to worship. After enjoying the view and rest, we walk down to the road and drive back to Kathmandu.
Day 01: Departure from your Hotel 7:00 AM , drive by Car, Van or Bus takes about 1 hour to Bhanjyang near Pharping. We might have opportunity to visit Neydo Tashi Choling Monastery and we start our day hiking steep uphill following stone step about an hour to Hattiban Resort. From there the trail ascends gradually through the Pine forest and we enjoy the view of Kathmandu valley and Mountains and the way to Deurali. We continue gradual ascent another half hour and last part of climb is a bit steeper to the top of the Champadevi Hill from where we can see great number of Himalayan Peaks and beautiful view of the valley. After enjoying the view and having our Lunch we return to Deurali following the same Path and from there we follow right path, continue descending to Taudaha and drive back to city.
