Chisopani and Nagarkot Trek
‘Mountain Sherpa Trekking’’gives you Chisopani-Nagarkot trek and other short treks like nobody else. Our trips are geared to provide you one of those rare outings to discover the many wonders of a sublime nature in the gentle wild of rural Nepal that blends in with breathtaking mountain views, wherever you move on the trails of the rims around the ancient valley of Kathmandu; our holiday begins with a whirlwind historical tour in this valley of temples, said to be the most in the world. We take you into historical monuments that speak of a history laced with majestic royalty and concealed tragedy that still rings in the corridors of these once lively symbols of Nepal’s monarchy in its heydays.
We have planned this short trek in a way that would be ideal for those with family and kids that are pretty grown up, students and honeymoon couples looking for that extraordinary conjugated bliss as you enjoy the gentle wilderness and this trip may be just the thing if you are cramped on time which won’t be enough for the bigger treks at higher altitudes. On this outing, you hike by the rims of Kathmandu Valley with lovely views of snowy mountains on the horizons, set in the characteristic Nepali rural countryside as you observe the lifestyles and ethnic culture of communities you meet up on the way. We first cruise down to our objective of Chisopani at (2,194m) where we are captivated with the natural ecosystems of nature that surrounds us and takes us mentally away from concrete jungles we all come from. We also get opportunities to interact with the local folks and learn of their traditions and the superstitions they live by hereabouts in these village locations.
We then drop slightly down to the hill resort of famous Nagarkot at (2,175m) which is a highly favoured destination for honeymoon couples looking for that serene quietness away from the maddening crowds you get everywhere these days. The spectacular sunrise we experience from this hill leave us ecstatic with lifelong refreshing memories of the regal panoramic sightings of the famous Himalayan peaks that include Mt. Everest, Mt. Ganesh Himal, Mt. Gaurishanker, Mt. Dorje lakpa, the Langtang Himalayan range, Rolwaling Himalayas and a number of other famous trekking peaks. On reverting back to Kathmandu, we observe the well known historic and cultural town of Bhaktapur. We drive through a road with pine forests on the sides, terraces and original thatched roofed colorful villages as we drive into medieval Bhaktapur on our way back to the Kathmandu valley.
