About Trip

Among the various trekking routes in Nepal, 3 Days Chisapani Trek is the most demanding short and an adventurous easy trek. This is one of the most beautiful and classic treks which begins 1 hrs drive to east from the Kathmandu valley called Sundarijal and ends up to Changu Narayan. The trek is the best suit for those who have limited time, budget, beginner and still prefer to experience the adventure in Nepal and it’s unspoiled beauties. It is the perfect way of exploring blended cultural and natural attraction. The dense jungle walk, terrace, farming, local lifestyle, world heritage sites and massive chain of the Himalayas surrounding are the major attribution of the trek. The trek is equally popular for internal and external tourists.

Chisapani along with Nagarkot are the finest view point for sunrise, sun set and close up view of the Ganesh Himal, Langtang Himal and Everest Himalaya Range. Nagarkot is situated 32 km East from Kathmandu valley and 2175m from the sea level. While it is situated on top of the strategic hill, Nagarkot was an ancient fort of Kathmandu Valley built to monitor the external activities of other kingdoms. Later it became a summer retreat for the Royal family before becoming popular as an international hill station. Additionally the Nagarkot hill is quite popular for a day tour too. Moreover our final destination of UNESCO world heritage site Changu Narayan adds an extra value on the trek. Changu Narayan is known as the second biggest God of Hindu called Bishnu.

Fantastic 3 day trek! Highly recommend, very professional and organised company


My boyfriend and I recently completed a 3 day trek with Nepal Trekking expert to Chisapani and Nagarkot. Rajesh was super helpful in helping to organise and book this trip for us as well as really professional. The night before the trek we were invited to his office to have a briefing on the trek, what to expect and what to bring and to meet our lovely guide Dinesh. We really appreciated this, and having spoke to other people not every company does this! We had such a great time on the trek, everything was well explained and organised. Dinesh was a fantastic guide, not only was he really knowledgeable on the area and the mountains, answering all our questions, he also made us feel really comfortable and we had fun at the same time! I wouldn’t hesitate to book again with Nepal Trekking experts and especially with Dinesh as our guide and I will recommend to others too!

A great company, highly recommended!


I had a wonderful time, hiking to Chisipani and Nargakot. My guide, Binod, was kind and supportive and gave me a lot of insight to the local history and culture. Everything was well organized and I did not have to worry about anything while on my adventure. Even before the trek started they were so welcoming and made me feel right at home.

I highly recommend using Nepal Trekking Experts to help you organize any and all kinds of activity during your holiday in Nepal!

Highly Professional team


While I had a short time in Nepal and was keen to hike, Nepal Trekking Experts offered me 3 days Chisapani Nagarkot Trek. The host Rajesh and my guide Rabin were amazing. The first day of the hike was short but a bit challenging for me but of course worth it. I really enjoyed the lush jungle, massive Kathmandu valley view and reached Chisapani. Chisapani was situated at the hillock and offered stunning views of the Langtang Himal, Ganesh Himal, Gaurishanker and more. The second day was a pleasant hike through some local villages, farming and greenery to Nagarkot. The overnight stay in Nagarkot was welcoming and luxurious. Once again I had a great view with a beautiful sunrise from the roof of the Hotel. Finally we end up our trek to one of the famous Hindu temples Changu Narayan and drive back to Kathmandu.

Overall it was a fabulous experience with NTE. I can not recommend them enough. Hope to see you soon guys!
