Chisapani Nagarkot Trek

3 Days

Chisapani Nagarkot Trek

The “Chisapani Nagarkot Trek” by Rainbow Mountain Treks is ideal for you if you want to take a break from your busy routine and travel somewhere serene but you’re short on time and money. This three-day trek will take you to the unspoiled countryside, just outside of Kathmandu, for a cool rest in the heart of verdant hills and the bank of drying rivers, as well as for breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains.

The unparalleled sunrise and sunset vistas on the silvery peaks are one of the key draws of this trek. The trekking route is simple but exciting.

Chisapani, which is 2,135 meters high, is located 576 kilometers northeast of Kathmandu. It is a lovely hill town that offers stunning views of the mountains and hills in the area. Sundarijal, located about 90 minutes from the city, is where the Chisapani Nagarkot hiking route starts. As the name indicates, Sundarijal is home to many exotic types of flora and animals as well as lovely streams. We can get a stunning panoramic view of the Kathmandu valley from Mulpani. We can see the Annapurna, Manaslu, and other western ranges clearly from the trail.

Those with limited time or soft hiking lovers can consider the Chisapani Nagarkot Trek. We will travel through the Shivapuri National Park, which is home to several unique species of animals, birds, and plants, as part of the Chisapani Nagarkot Trek. In addition, it offers stunning mountain vistas.

At 2,175 meters, Nagarkot is roughly 32 kilometers northeast of Kathmandu. The hill station is well known for its breathtaking views of the Alps, both at sunrise and dusk. It is the perfect place to see the wonders of nature while yet enjoying the comforts of urban life.

Both Chisapani and Nagarkot are well-known mountain viewing locations both domestically and abroad. The Everest and Langtang ranges, Manaslu, Buddha Himal, Ganesh Himal, Dorje Lakpa Himal, and Gauri Shankar Himal are just a few of the magnificent mountains that can be seen from these two locations.

In addition to providing an opportunity to study and experience the historic tradition, culture, and way of life of the rural people not too far from the city, Chisapani Nagarkot Trek also offers the royal majesty of the Himalayan nation from close by!
