Short Hike near Kathmandu

25 Mar 2019 NEG

Top 3 short hiking near Kathmandu

In March 2012, I did a 3 days trek in Kathmandu with 3 of my friends in Nepal using the below itinerary. It was a very scenic route going through villages and farmlands giving us an opportunity to observe the local lifestyle. This trek is also very manageable for most people as this is my first time doing such long treks. We had an experienced guide with us, Mr. Santosh Gauli, and a porter named Bhimsen Rijal (or just call Bhim) who also happen to be a guide at EBC but working part-time as a porter during our visit to Nepal. They are both very responsible, entertaining and they definitely made our trekking experience much pleasant and safe. They were also very encouraging during difficult times for example there was a 9 hours trek one day from Chisapani to Nagarkot. I would definitely recommend them for your future trekking trips in Nepal as they have more than 10 years of working experience and very familiar with the mountain routes in Everest and Annapurna.

So, You can hire Mr. Santosh as your guide.

Day 01: Drive Kathmandu to Sundarijal and hike to Chisapani- 4 hours. We will drive to Sundarijal which takes about an hour and we start our hiking, the trail gradually up with pine and oak forest, this Shivapuripuri National park is a good spot for bird watching and some other wild animals can be seen during the hiking.
