If you have short time and prefer to be away from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu valley then Champa Devi Hill Day Tour is the perfect destination for you. The Champa Devi day hike is truly mesmerizing and scenic day hike in the outskirts of Kathmandu valley.
After a 45 minute drive from Thamel to the west we reach in 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 massif Ganesh Himal, Langtang Himal, Dorje Lakpa, Gaurishanker, Manaslu and countless snow caved Himalaya vistas.
Moreover, the Champa Devi Day Tour let you a unique opportunity of walking through the charming ridge and exploring the massive Kathmandu valley with a stunning background of rolling hills. The trail is quite organized and calm. You may have a great opportunity of exploring beautiful birds and flora/fauna. Ultimately we reach 2285m at Champadevi hill which is known as a shrine of 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 2500m which is my favorite view point too. As challenging as the hike to reach Bhasmasur, it is equally interesting, scenic and outstanding too. Ultimately we reach our final destination Chandragiri Hill 2520m where we enjoy a delicious lunch and drinks with stunning Himalayas vistas surroundings. At the end you will be treated by cable car descending to the Chandragiri village from where we ride back to the hotel by car for overnight.
Since I have explored most of the hikes nearby Kathmandu valley, Champa Devi to Chandragiri via Bhasmasur Hill is the most beautiful one ever. You never regret choosing such a hike once in a 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.
