Hike to Chisapani
Passing through the Shivapuri National Park, we can reach Chisapani after hiking up for 5 hours. The walk through the jungle is really adventurous, dense forest surrounded by hills all the sides. We’ll have an overnight stay at the hotel. The other day view from Chisapani is magnificent, the rays of sun early morning fall into the hills and then beside it there reside giant mountain range of Ganesh and Langtang. You’ll be truly mesmerised by this view. This is an amazing scenery one can have in a short duration. The second day we’ll be returning back to Kathmandu.
Hike to Champadevi
Hiking up the steep hills of Champadevi is tiresome. It takes approximately about 3 and a half hours of walking from Taudaha. Observing the view of the valley from the top is mindblowing. The crowded city can be seen clearly. The more you are at the top, perception gets much clearer. Green lush forest, walking down the alleys is equally adventurous.
Hike to Phulchowki
You can reach Phulchowki after 5 hrs of walk from Godawari. Phulchowki is the highest peak among those surrounding in Kathmandu valley. It lies at an altitude of 2700 meters. The real hike begins when the villages are over. Phulchowki peak looks very close from there. A stranger to the place becomes amazed to see jungle all around. A very narrow trail leads towards the peak.
Hike to Surya Chaur
From Surya Chaur you can have a magnificent view of Ganesh himal in short walk of about an hour from Shivapuri National Park entrance. Hiking through the forest where one can see lots of red Rhododendron Nepalese national flowers. As we move ahead we could see the clear white mountains around us at a short distance. The smile brought up in your face by that view is unforgettable.
