Hike to Chisapani

Chisapani(2194m) which means 'cold water' in Nepali, is a small  hill top village that lies deep in the Shivpuri Hill, surrounding   the northern side of Kathmandu  valley. Like Phulchowki,  this small village is also an ideal destination for day hikes and nature tours. You can begin the hike either from Sundarijal or Shivapuri National Park. How fast you reach the top depends on your speed and fitness level. The hike leads you to a trail filled with abundant greenary and breath taking views – dense forests, wide meadows, waterfalls and hidden springs and panoramic views of the valley floor, surrounding hills and snowy peaks. You can hike to the top and descend in a day.

Samir, Kisan, Samundra, Prachanda & Suman from our office have been deligently exploring the hills around Kathmandu during weekends. Here are some snapshots from their recent hike to Chisapani.
