3 days hike to Sundarijal-Chisapani-Nagarkot

3 days hike to Sundarijal-Chisapani-Nagarkot

By Outdoor Himalayan Treks
Combining the best of nature with some typical local life, gorgeous Himalayan views, captivating sunset and ethereal sunrise from Chisapani and Nagarkot, this hike makes for an ideal vacation in a matter of three days. The trip starts with a short drive to Sundarijal, a popular hangout and busy picnic spot in the north of Kathmandu. Falling inside the boundaries of Shivapuri National Park, this is a place of cool shades, tall trees, beautiful streams and serene atmosphere — all in striking contrast to the noise and crowd of the city. Leaving aside a few settlements on the way, the hike trail passes through forest to Chisapani, the destination of the first day. Chisapani is a mixed settlement of Brahmins, Gurungs, and Sherpas. The village also commands a beautiful view of the large section of the Himalayan range, which emits an ethereal glow in the setting sunlight. All along the forest through Shivapuri National Park with only occasional settlements,we reach Nagarkot

          Tsum Valley & Manaslu Circuit trek
          Outdoor Himalayan provides the best service in every situation and have the nicest employees. Our Tsum Valley and Manaslu circuit trek was great. Rammani Rijal, our guide Krishna Pokharel and porters Prakash and Sudip did their best to make our trip unforgettable. Next time we will definitely use their services again.

          Incredible trekking experience with Bishwas and Outdoor Himalayan Treks!
          I had an unbelievable time trekking the Manaslu Circuit Trek with Outdoor Himalayan Treks. Badri was extremely professional, helpful, and communicative throughout the entire planning process. My guide Bishwas wqs incredibly nice, fun, thoughtful, and knowledgeable, making me feel safe and engaged throughout the entire trek. He did an outstanding job making my trek an experience I will never forget in my entire life. I so highly recommend trekking with Bish and Outdoor Himalayan Treks!

          Great experience and highly recommended
          This was our first trek in the Himalaya and it met all ouf our expectations. We chose the ABC trek partly because it "only" goes up to 4,200 metres and wanted to see how we'd get on with the altitude. We travelled with Himalayan Social journey (recommended) and our guide Ganesh was excellent. Ours was a 9 day trek via Poonhill. The scenery was superb - ever chaning as we climbed. Tea house accommodation was as expected - basic but clean. Expect to share a room at ABC in high season. We decided to give the hot spring at Jinhu a miss and instead took a jeep to Sarangot for 1 night. Highly recommended - the views of Pokhara lake in one direction and the himalayan range in the other were stunning.

          Great trek
          I enjoyed the manaslu circuit trek a lot! The views were amazing, we had great accommodations along the way and were guided well by our experienced guide Krishna! He brought a lot of joy and interesting facts to the trip and i am happy to have had him as our guide! Especially since we could adjust the itinerary to the circumstances and were able to cross the larke pass in best weather. Thanks for making that possible!

          A fantastic experience with Krishna Pokharel and Outdoor!
          We are two men from Norway who did the Manaslu circuit trek with Outdoor Himalayan and had a fantastic experience! Our guide Krishna Pokharel was fantastic. With 25 years of trekking experience he knew everything there was to know about the trek and the environments we passed. In addition to this he is a truly kind and funny human being. We highly recommend Outdoor, Krishna and the Manaslu Circuit trek!

          Nature's Glory at Langtang Valley Trek
          My wife and I have recently completed our Langtang Valley Trekking from late May to early June 2023, arranged by Outdoor Himalayan Treks. This is our second time trekking in Nepal and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This time, it was an entirely different experience - for us, Langtang Valley trekking was indeed " Nature at its very Best " The panoramic views of the Himalayan ranges, clean crisp mountain air against a background of the call of nature (chirping of birds, continuous gush of the river/streams, cries of the deer in the night). Walking along lush bamboo forests dotted with pretty flowers, encounters with families of yak, monkeys, mules ..an amazing sight. The sheer absence of technology / internet up in the mountains was quite a different feeling! The trekking in Langtang was raw, rugged...oneness with nature. For the first two days we were going uphill with average vertical gains of 1000m each day and hitting 3300m on day 3. Steep ascents very often on narrow paths, laden with rocks, stones, and crossing streams required deft and steady footwork. What goes up must come down..steep descents were a toll on our knees. The air gets thinner as we climb higher, thank goodness we had paced ourselves throughout the trek and we were blessed with excellent weather. My wife continued and reached the peak of Kyanjin 1 at 4400m, where she enjoyed the great sense of accomplishment and the glorious breathtaking views! The funny thing was, sharing with her moment of joy at the peak appeared angels ...two friendly dogs ! The beauty of nature is also present in the professional and experienced handling of both our guide and porter. Our guide, Subba is very experienced and was most attentive to our needs. Together with our young and strong porter, Madhov, they were a wonderful pair. In moments, when I thought I was going to slip down the terrain, a quick hand would be there to support me. Will always remember the wise words of our guide.."Take baby steps and follow the mule". The warm hospitality of our hosts at the guesthouses provided us with a glimpse of the local Tibetan culture. The simplicity and beauty of nature !

          Manaslu circuit and Tsum Valley trek with Outdoor Himalayan Treks company.
          We had a great 17 days Manaslu circuit and Tsum Valley trek with the very good service and help of Outdoor Himalayan Treks. I highly recommend this company if you plan trekking in Nepal. I have to give special thanks to the manager Rammani and to our porter – guide Madav for their hospitality and great help for this unique experience. Rammani help us a lot and earn for us some extra days with the arrayments and the licenses of the trek. Madav it was our friend for 20 days and do everything possible to help us. We couldn't ask for more and we highly and strongly recommend the trip, experience and travel company.

          EBC trekking with the best company
          I highly recommend this company if you plan trekking in Nepal. They provide full support from the very beginning. The great advantage is that they are very flexible and adjust the trekking to your needs and conditions. Ramani makes impossible possible and will help you very quickly and effectively with everything you need. He not only provide relentless support during the trek but with many other topics you might have. I will definitely choose Outdoor Himalayan Treks for the next trip.

          I would definitely recommend Outdoor Himalayan. We did the EBC trek. Ram - the manager is a great host! Very quick to respond and helpful when it comes to booking hotels, local transport, food recommendations. He provided relentless support for our ever changing plans. If I go back to Nepal, I'm definitely going to do it with Outdoor Himalayan as they provide outstanding support.

          We had a great 12 days Manaslu circuits trek with the great service and help of Outdoor Himalayan Treks and the manager Rammani. The service, information, arrangements and hospitality were perfect and made this trip a once in a life experience (although we would like to come back...). our very knowledgeable, experienced and accommodating Guide Krishna was a pleasure to travel with and Prashkar the porter is a great, happy and strong (..) young man. we couldn't ask for more and we highly and strongly recommend the trip, experience and travel company.

          Best trek yet!
          I just returned from a 10-day trek through the Langtang Valley and Gosainkunda Lake. I have trekked many times in Nepal, including two other trips with this company. This was my favorite experience yet! My guide Rupak and my porter Brokus were outstanding! Rupak was friendly, knowledgeable, attentive to my safety, and kept me laughing even through challenging times. When Rupak realized that I was capable of more than what was on the itinerary, he provided me with options of how to modify my remaining days. The result was an experience of a lifetime! All of the staff I have worked with are amazing. Badri has developed all of my treks with keen attention to detail and great professionalism. Dilli has been an excellent guide as well.

        We did the 3 days tour in the Shivapuri Nagarjun National parc and we really enjoyed it. The tour from Sundarijal to Chisapani and afterwards to Nagarkot is very beautiful but you have to be in good shape to do it because you have to climb a lot of stairs and walk for about 21km the second day of the tour. We went with the guide Dilli who over all was very nice although we felt that he was a little distant. He answered all our questions but kept the information very short and to a minimum. Sometimes we would have wished that he walked next to us in our own speed instead of walking faster ahead of us. The accommodations on the trip are very basic in Chisapani and luxirious in Nagarkot.
