CHISAPANI-NAGARKOT HIKE | Northern Trekking Team CHISAPANI-NAGARKOT HIKE | Northern Trekking Team


Chisapani-Nagarkot Hike is one of the popular and easiest trekking trails of Nepal. It is best for those who are in Nepal for brief say and would like to give a quick glance to the Himalayas of this naturally blessed nation.

The other aspect of this trek is that it suits the hikers of every age group—from kids to senior citizens.

This beautiful walk through the countryside of Nepal will reveal you the beauty of greenery and snow-capped peaks of Langtang range. While on the trek, you will also get an opportunity to witness several species of birds as more than 500 species of winged creatures are found in the jungle of this area that is protected by Shivapuri National Park.

The hike begins from Sundarijal and proceeds toward Chisapani. It is a silent and peaceful walk amid lush green vegetation. The Hike will bring you at the altitude of nearly 2,450m from where you follow the downhill trail to get in Chisapani.

After spending a night in Chisapani, we proceed toward Nagarkot and it is a walk of roughly six hours.

Nagarkot is one of the popular hill stations of the country from where you get an awe-inspiring view of Langtang range. The hike ends as you get back to the capital, Kathmandu.


Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu

Welcome to Nepal and thanks for booking Chisapani-Nagarkot Hike with us.

We will receive you at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) and lead you to the hotel in Thamel from TIA.

You will be meeting your trek guide today who will assist your hike for the next two days. He will also ensure you about things to bring for this much-appreciated walk.

Day 02: Drive to Sundarijal/Hike to Chisapani

Early in the morning after breakfast, we will drive you to Sundarijal. It is the starting point of our hike. Tentatively, it takes an hour to get here from Kathmandu.

We follow gradual climb and begin the trek. As the walk begins, we will arrive at a check post where we need to get a permit to enter inside Shivapuri National Park.

Crossing couple of villages, we head ahead. We arrive at the army check post and produce our permit. Further walk from here is really beautiful. The walk continues for another couple of hours and we get in the highest altitude of the trek—2,450m.

Now we follow the downhill trail to arrive in Chisapani where we will spend the night.

Day 03: Hike to Nagarkot

Today we will be moving toward Nagarkot and it is 18km from Chisapani. The walk is easy, beautiful and exciting as you will get a view of charming Langtang range.

We arrive in Nagarkot at around 4 pm. We will spend a night in a resort.

Day 04: Drive to Kathmandu

Wake up! Nagarkot is a popular vantage point for sunrise view. We reach at a tower early in the morning and watch the sunrise. The golden color of the mountain with the rise of sun will mesmerize you.

We get back to resort and have our breakfast. We will hire a private vehicle to get back to Kathmandu.

In the capital, you will get enough time to roam around Thamel, the most popular tourist spot of Katmandu.

In the evening, Northern Trekking Team will offer you dinner and share your hike experience. Your feedback matters!
