What to Expect
Day 1: Drive to Sundarijal and Hike to Chisapani; 5 hours’ hike (L,D)

After having breakfast a bit early in the morning, we drive to Sundarijal. It is a busy picnic spot of the valley-dwellers on public holidays. Lush greenery, sources of water and serene environment greet us as soon as we reach there. From here, our hike to Chisapani starts. Walking through a few settlements and a lot of forest with variety of birds and chances of sighting animals, we arrive at Chisapani. There is an added fun of having packed lunch on the way. The total duration of the hike is nearly five hours. Chisapani is a Sherpa village, offering grand views of the mountains. Relieve yourself in the evening by watching a picturesque sunset from the village, and retire to a teahouse to spend the night.

Day 2: Hike to Nagarkot from Chisapani; 7 hours’ hike (B,L,D)

We get up in the morning, have our breakfast and head towards Nagarkot from Chisapani. This is a relatively demanding day that requires you to walk for about 7 hours. But the trail passes mostly through dense forest of the national park, making you forget the tiredness. We pause our hike for a while in Chauki Bhanjyang or Jhule to have lunch and take a short rest. Then we continue along the idyllic countryside to Nagarkot, a hilltop to the east of Kathmandu offers unmatched scenery of innumerable peaks along a large section of the Himalayas. Surely the setting sun fires your spirit and inspires your imagination with the shades of colour it leaves on the Himalayas. In the evening, stay in a good hotel of the area.

Day 3: Hike from Nagarkot to Changunarayan and Drive to Kathmandu (B,L)

Or Direct Drive to Kathmandu from Nagarkot

Wake up early in the morning today to welcome once-in-a-lifetime sunrise view. Before the fresh morning rays reach your eye, they hit the tip of the peaks and majestically descend downwards. The shine of rays and the glimmer of snow-clad tops and slopes of mountains completely mesmerize your senses. After having breakfast, you can choose to hike to Changunarayan, a UNESCO world heritage site. We take lunch in Telkot. En route lie pleasant views of farm terraces and of Kathmandu valley. Or you can drive straight to Kathmandu from Nagarkot, and have your lunch in a fine restaurant in Kathmandu and explore the city during the rest of the day.

We did the 3 days tour in the Shivapuri Nagarjun National parc and we really enjoyed it. The tour from Sundarijal to Chisapani and afterwards to Nagarkot is very beautiful but you have to be in good shape to do it because you have to climb a lot of stairs and walk for about 21km
