Chisapani Nagarkot trekking is one of the shortest, easiest and nearest treks from Kathmandu Valley. Those who are interested in experiencing Himalayan peaks, Nepalese countryside, pristine nature and a bit of cultural history, Chisapani Nagarkot trekking is highly recommended.
The trekking journey begins in Sundarijal, which is about 45 minutes drive away from Kathmandu city. Sundarijal is a water catchment area that has been providing drinking water to the residents of Kathmandu Valley for a long time. The trek takes you to Chisapani (2100m) which is home to majority ethnic Tamang people. From here you can capture splendid views of snow-capped Himalayan peaks such as Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Dorje Lhakpa, Gaurishanker etc. The final stretch of trekking is made to reach Nagarkot (2200m), one of the most popular hill stations, which affords spectacular panorama of Himalayan peaks from Kanchenjunga, Langtang ranges in the east to Everest, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri in the west. Nagarkot is also famous for beautiful sunrise and sunset views.
A big portion of the trekking is within Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park, which is the newest protected area in Nepal. The park is covered with pine, oak, rhododendron, alder, Himalayan cherry forests, mushrooms and several herb species. Dove, barbet, owl, babbler, civet, jackal, black bear, porcupine, monkey, and pica are some wild species living in the park.

The accommodations are chosen based on trekking itinerary, comfort level, budget and interests of trekkers and accessibility in terms of scenery and trail. Most arrangements are made on Bed & Breakfast basis, double/twin sharing in Lodges/Tea houses and Deluxe – Star Hotels in cities. Depending upon your interests, a wide range of hotels are available in city areas such as Kathmandu, Pokhara, etc. and during the trekking trail, there are plenty of lodges, teahouses, guesthouses and sometimes even hotels for accommodation. A Teahouse/Lodge trek is where trekkers stay in lodges and guesthouses along the trail as opposed to tents/camping. Such Teahouses/Lodges are run either by local families or are community-based which offers simple to moderate facilities, with simple beds, solar-powered hot water and a limited set of cuisines/meals.
For this trek we offer two types of accommodation, ‘Deluxe Hotel’ in the city and ‘Teahouse/Lodge’ during the trekking trail. The Hotels and Teahouses have been selected by the Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks after personal inspection. We look at the conditions of the inns, local hygiene, quality of food, type of service and more. All rooms are double occupancy, but you can request a single occupancy room for an additional fee. However, sometimes single rooms are not available in some places, depending upon seasonality with limited choices available in peak season. We do work to provide the best possible options when trekking in the High Himalayas.
Touristic cities such as Kathmandu, Pokhara, offer some of the finest dining restaurants. Get spoiled with unlimited choices for cuisines, ranging from local Nepali food to international delicacies. In contrast, there might not be as much variety of cuisines available on the trekking trail. Trekking lodges and small eateries along the trail will offer you basic diets such as Nepali Dal Bhat, sandwich, apple pie and pizza and regular beverages. However, you will get to enjoy mostly organic food on trekking trails.
For this trek we offer you full board (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner) local or best available continental food as per menu on your choice and 3 cups of tea/coffee per day.
