Chisapani Nagarkot Hiking offers one of the best experiences of natural beauty and adventure within a very short trekking route. Nature walks well combined with the best views of the captivating sunrise and sunset from Nagarkot and Chisapani are dreamlike. The sunrise and sunset emit a picturesque view of the surrounding mountains. The panoramic view of the ever-present Himalayas will remain immortal in your memory.

This hike is perfect for those nature lovers who have very limited time to stay in the country. We also recommend the Chisapani hike for people planning to start on challenging treks in Nepal for the first time. It provides the much-needed experience of walking in and around some beaten tracks and unknown terrain passing through the forests.

Also, it adds an experience of the feelings of isolation that recur on the path in several trekking destinations. Likewise, this hiking also acts as a soother for those who have recently accomplished extreme adventures in the mountains or gone on safari or other adventure sports in Nepal and need to relax their minds and bodies.

Chisapani Nagarkot hiking is popular for its spectacular views of an ocean of snow-capped mountains and rich landscapes. It also includes beautiful, rugged villages, terraced fields, and lush green forests. In a mere 30 km away from the hectic city life, you can reach this calm area in about an hour’s drive. It falls in Shivapuri National Park, which is surrounded by a shady and serene atmosphere.

Major Highlights

  • View of the high snowcapped mountains,
  • Walkthrough the forest.
  • Popular hillstation, nagarkot.
  • Changunarayan temple, unesco heritage site.

The Route to Chisapani Nagarkot

This short hike begins with an hour’s drive to Sundarijal. We will walk for around four hours to reach Chisapani at our first stop. The next day, we will take the seven-hour-lengthy walk from Chisapani to Nagarkot. The walk offers the best of both serene nature and country hiking experiences. You will also enjoy the hospitality, heart-warming smiles, and gestures from the locals that will imprint on your experience for many years.


An early morning drive to Sundarijal is a wonderful way to enjoy brief glimpses of Nepal’s landscape; whilst the drive, amazing view of the Ganesh Himal will be a pleasing sight to your eyes. The drive to Sundarijal consists of a road that whirls up through the hills with large forest vegetation. Once you step at Sundarijal, you ascend upward to reach the entrance of the Shivapuri National Park following a stone-paved path. The village has a temple dedicated to the Hindu deity Sundarimai after whose name the village has been introduced as Sundarijal. The village which is also famous for the Canyoning has the Bagmati River flowing through it, which is linked by the other two rivers; Shyalmati and Bagmati in the lower elevation. Sundarijal has few flat zones only and is generally covered by forests; therefore, it is largely hilly with respect to its area coverage. As you hike from Sundarijal to the Shivapuri National Park, the natural beauty presented around the trail looks pretty vibrant with the wide-open views of the gleaming mountains popping up in between the green hills. The ninth national park of Nepal, Shivapuri National Park that covers an area of the 159-kilometer square was named after the Shivapuri Peak. The Chisapani hiking through the park is decorated with subtropical Himalayan woods and several species of both vascular and prevalent species of flora. The faunal diversity of the national park includes animals such as Leopards, Jungle cats, Himalayan Black Bears, and Pangolins. The journey to Chisapani made even more enchanting by the mountain views of the Annapurna Panorama, the Ganesh Himal, the Gaurishankar Range, and many other peaks is a journey to celebrate. Overnight stay at the guesthouse at Chisapani, lunch, and dinner included.

The hike from Chisapani to Nagarkot is going to be even more exciting than the previous day with an amazing journey of mountain views and a beautiful hilly outlook. The path that takes you to Nagarkot leaving behind Chisapani will take you through more dense forests, massive woodlands, an army camp, and other small villages. The trail twists a little bit of upward and downward paths and the lush vegetation of the area supplies a charming surrounding for the hike. Nagarkot widely shelters the thick forests and is located in a lush green valley with many villages spotted in its land. Nagarkot which is situated above the valley towards the north of the city is famous for its sunrise view amidst the Himalayas and is also called the premier Hill Station of the Kathmandu Valley. The vantage point of Nagarkot provisions the view of Mount Everest, along with many other peaks of eastern Nepal, and also a panoramic view of the Kathmandu valley and the Shivapuri National Park. The history states, because of its strategic location, Nagarkot was an ancient fort of the Kathmandu valley built to monitor the external activities of other kingdoms. Later, it became a retreat for the royal family before becoming popular as an international hill station. What has made it a special one is the fact that it is nearest to Kathmandu and it tips one of the broadest views of 8 ranges out of 13 Himalayan ranges of Nepal? The Himalayan range includes the Annapurna range, the Manaslu range, the Ganesh Himal range, the Langtang range, the Jugal range, the Rolwaling range, the Everest range, and the Number range.
