Chisapani to Nagarkot hiking is gaining its popularity for having naturally beautiful short trekking route near Kathmandu valley. The hiking route provides a superb view of the Himalayas and passes through green forest and flowing river. The starting point of the hike is Sundarijal. Sundarijal is a beautiful location at the foot of Shivapuri National Park. The river, waterfall and natural beauty show the freshness of the environment. The hiking towards Chisapani starts with the uphill walk through the stone steps. The first few hours of hike can be tiring for some people due to the stone steps and elevation.

The hiking route passes through the entrance gate of Shivapuri National Park. The forest with pine, rhododendron, oak and different floral beauty is home for different animal species like rhesus monkey, jungle cat, more than 180 species of birds and above 100 species of butterflies. During the hike we reach to ethnic Tamang village, Mulkharka. Mulkharka offers a pleasurable sight of Kathmandu valley. After about 5-6 hours of hike through dense forest, off the beaten trails, villages and landscapes we reach Chisapani. Chisapani is a cool and beautiful village which delivers a magnificent view of eastern Himalayan ranges of Nepal. After spending a night at the local guest house we wake up early to view the heavenly view of sun rising from the beautiful snowcapped mountains. After having breakfast we start our 7 hour hike towards Nagarkot. Passing through different villages, terrace farms and natural beauties we arrive at Nagarkot and move into a hotel.

Nagarkot is a famous tourist destination. The popular view point at Nagarkot offers a beautiful sunrise view early in the morning. The panoramic sight of the mountain ranges surrounding the valley is beautiful. From Nagarkot we descend towards Changunarayan temple, the oldest Pagoda style hindu temple in Nepal. We explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site listed temple, museum and observe 1000 years old stone sculpture at Changunarayan.
