The Chisapani to Nagarkot Trekking especially focuses on those people not having enough time in their hands. But still, wish to explore the magic and mystery that lies in the periphery of Kathmandu. This trek starts from Kathmandu and you will proceed to Sundarijal. Observe the delightful waterfall and navigate along the green hills with seldom view of small settlements. Walk along small streams to reach Chisapani and from there, relish at the sight of the snow-laden mountains like Langtang, Gaurishankar, and Ganesh Himal. Move to Nagarkot and after witnessing the greenery, we head towards the livid Changu Narayan temple. Observe the enigma in this temple and put a full stop in your journey.
