Chisapani to Sankhu trek – 2 days

Kathmandu, Capital City of the kingdom of Nepal, is situated in a basin surrounded by chain of mountain. Eastern rim of the valley from Nagarkot to Kakani provides easily accessible and a quick approach to the mountain. The Himalayan view from Mt. Everest in the east to Manaslu and Hiumchuli in the west can be seen throughout the trail. Langtang and Ganesh Himal dominates skyline on the north. On a clear day part of the range of Annapurna can be seen. The village dotted on the ridge and foothill of this section of the rim gives a bird eye view of diverse culture. The oak, pine and rhododendron forests give different view of the fast disappearing forest resource of Nepal.

This trek ends at Sankhu where we catch  your vehicle  for returning to Kathmandu This trek is not a very easy nor very soft, the trek can be termed  moderate in difficulty due to couple of hours of uphill walk on the first day. But anyone with moderate fitness can do it.

Day 01: Drive to Sundarijal, trek to Chisapani (2050m) – 5/6 hours walk - Guest House accommodation

After  breakfast drive to Sundarijal, located on the outskirts of Kathmandu. Along the way, enjoy views of the hilly, forested terrain of the Kathmandu Valley and get acquainted with your fellow travelers as you prepare for your Himalayan adventure!

After your vehicle arrives at your first destination, hike with your guide up a long staircase that follows the water pipeline to the entrance of Shivapuri National Park. Take in the scenic beauty of your surroundings, where pine and oak forests mix with rhododendrons and a variety of orchids. As you continue your trek along the staircase and past the water reservoir, learn about the unique wildlife that is protected in the park, including sloth bears, leopards, wild boar and Indian porcupine. Listen for a variety of birds and keep an eye out for 150 species of butterflies.

When your group reaches the village of Mulkharka, your guide will assist you to find a simple lunch in one of the wayside shops. Following a rest with food and tea, head through town, passing an abandoned school on your return to the forest. Here, the steep incline eases and shade offers welcome relief from the warm temperatures.
