Bhaktapur World Heritage SitesChisapani Nagarkot TrekkingOn the way to Chisapani
Chisapani Nagarkot Trek is short and sweet trip of 3 days tea house trek to Nagarkot and to Dhulikhel if the tour is extended for another 2 days. This tour plan is designed for the short time travelers in Nepal who would like to taste of Nepal. Chisapani Nagarkot Trek starts from Sundarijal after driving 45 minutes from Kathmandu. In the beginning the trail pierces Shivapuri National Park passing through a big watershed that provides 40 percent drinking to Kathmandu Valley. Chisapani Nagarkot Trek offers beautiful nature and village walk experience, natural environment, stunning Himalaya panorama of Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Langtang Himal, Gaurishankar Himal and even we can spot Mount Everest in far distance. 
 
Your first destination is Chisapani after walking about 4-5 hours to Sundarijal. The weather in Chisapani is always cold as its name is Chisapani, meaning “cold water” in Nepali where you will enjoy the real boon of nature being away from the noise of Kathmandu feeling better to be away from crowded busy city life and your interaction with the local people will add another experience. Walking through jungle and hearing bird chirpings to Lapsi Phedi from Chisapani is pleasurable excursion. 
 
We have lunch break in Jule or Chauki Bhanjyang village after walking 3 hours from Chisapani and after having lunch hiking continues to Nagarkot, the beautiful village full of standard hotels, lodges and resorts. Early sunrise view from Nagarkot is the most fascinating and mesmerizing view reflecting rays of sun to White Mountains. Nagarkot with the height of 2195 meter from sea level is on the edge of the valley and offers superb views of the mountains as well as Kathmandu valley. Along with this you visit the temple at Changunarayan, one of the oldest Hindu temples in Nepal which offers you to have a peek observation of the religious practice of Nepali people. And your sightseeing tour in medieval ancient town Bhaktapur can be beautiful lifetime experience for sure.
