Chisapani hiking is one of the shortest treks that is convenient and easily accessible from the Kathmandu city. This trek is famous because hikers can view snow-capped mountains if they are lucky while they walk the beautiful wild forests that are painted with rhododendron flowers during springtime. You can also experience the traditional Nepali feeling, the peace, and tranquility as you get away from the busy modern life in the city.
The starting point of this trek is Budhanilkantha, a small town on the outskirts of the Kathmandu valley. Budhanilkantha is also a religious site of the sleeping Hindu God, Lord Vishnu, where you will start walking through the woods of Shivapuri National Park, a sanctuary of unique flora and fauna. You can continue walking the trails uphill passing the Nagi Gumba and a small Tamang village called Mulkharka for about 6 hours until you reach Chisapani.
