This hike from Sundarijal to Chisapani combines the best of nature with some typical local life, gorgeous Himalayan views, captivating sunset and ethereal sunrise from Chisapani and Nagarkot, and makes for an ideal vacation in one to three days. The journey begins with a short drive to Sundarijal, a popular hangout and busy picnic spot in Kathmandu's northwestern outskirts. Within the boundaries of Shivapuri National Park, this is a place of cool shade, tall trees, beautiful streams, and a serene atmosphere, all in stark contrast to the city's noise and crowd. Chisapani is a multi-ethnic community of Brahmins, Gurungs, and Sherpas. The village also commands a stunning view of the Himalayan range, which emits an ethereal glow. The hike takes about 2 hours and 39 minutes and covers 6.2 kilometres along Chisapani Rd.
