The Chisopani-Nagarkot trek is especially designed for those who don't have much time but would still like to see the countryside and mountains. We created this trek as a Taste of Adventure. The three days, two nights trek provides you a unique opportunity to explore the numerous wonders of nature, beautiful scenery of the hills and a spectacular view of mountains.
Chisopani is located north of Kathmandu, 2135m above sea level. The trek begins from Sundarijal, after a 90 minute bus drive from Kathmandu. The trail ascends following a small river and passes through an area that has been reserved for its unique cultural aspects. After you reach Mulkharka, you get a great view of the Kathmandu valley and you will be away from the crowds and hectic pace of the city. After a one and half hour climb from Mulkharka, you will pass Borlang Bhanjhyang and descend about an hour to Chisopani.
Along the trail you will see the huge Himalaya ranges that include the Annapurna massif and the eighth highest mountain in the world, Manaslu. From Chisopani, the trail heads to the south following the ridges. The trail is easy, with gentle rolling grades. You will see great numbers of mountains all through the day and you may encounter some wild animals. Nagarkot is located east of Kathmandu and is one of the famous tourist destinations of the region. You will have a great opportunity to see a wonderful sunset and this one of the best sunrise locations for Himalayan views. Plan to be up early so you won’t miss out. After exploring Nagarkot on the third morning we return to Kathmandu.
