Are you bored with the hectic Kathmandu valley?
If you have limited time and prefer to be away from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu Valley, then the Champa Devi Hill Day Tour is the perfect destination for you. The Champa Devi day hike is a truly breathtaking and scenic day hike on the outskirts of Kathmandu.
After a 45-minute drive from Thamel to the west, we reach Pharping village, from where our pleasant hike begins. The trail gradually ascends through the lush pine forest, along with the colorful Buddhist prayer flags. During our hike, you will be greeted by the panoramic scenery of massifs such as Ganesh Himal, Langtang Himal, Dorje Lakpa, Gaurishanker, Manaslu, and countless snow-capped Himalayan vistas.
Moreover, the Champa Devi Day Tour gives you the unique opportunity of walking through the charming ridge and exploring the massive Kathmandu Valley against a stunning background of rolling hills. The trail is quite organized and calm. You may have a great opportunity to explore beautiful birds, flora, and fauna. Ultimately, we reach 2285 m at Champadevi Hill, which is known as a shrine to the goddess. Despite the popularity of hiking destinations, it is equally popular and worthwhile for the local pilgrims to worship Champa Devi and get blessed.
Beyond the Champa Devi hill, our journey continues to Bhasmasur Hill (2500 m), which is my favorite view point too. As challenging as the hike to reach Bhasmasur is, it is equally interesting, scenic, and outstanding too. Ultimately, we reach our final destination, Chandragiri Hill, at 2520 m, where we enjoy a delicious lunch and drinks with stunning Himalayan vistas as surroundings. Finally, you will be treated to a cable car ride down to Chandragiri village, from which we will return to the hotel by car for the night.
Since I've done most of the hikes around Kathmandu Valley, Champa Devi to Chandragiri via Bhasmasur Hill is my favorite. You will never regret taking such a hike in your life. If you have any confusion, then please do not hesitate to contact our experts right away.
Note: Earlier than Chandra Giri Hill, we won’t have proper stops for lunch and drinks. So please carry enough water and snacks.
