The small trek that we present here offers many possibilities in the middle of nature bordering the Kathmandu Valley. Forests and terraced fields will accompany us during most of the itinerary, and we will cross villages and farms, where we will be greeted and will be able to greet the local inhabitants of the area.
The route runs mainly along mountain paths and tracks, although there are also some short sections on paved road, which vary from year to year. Throughout the route, we have many opportunities to see the white peaks of the Himalayas, either among the trees or in the open hills and every day from our destinations of each stage. Chisapani, Nagarkot, Dhulikhel and Namo Buddha himself are privileged balconies over the mountains.
This trek has a great advantage, it is so close to Kathmandu that it is not necessary to travel long distances for hours to reach its starting point and return when it is finished. What’s more, you can return to Kathmandu by car from each end of the stage, so you can make it last as long as you want while offering variables such as the possibility of walking down to Bhaktapur from Nagarkot instead of continuing to Dhulikhel.
On the other hand, apart from Chisapani where the accommodation is in a lodge, more in line with the treks in Nepal, in Nagarkot and Dhulikhel the accommodation is in comfortable hotels, while the Monastery of Namo Buddha sleeps in the guest-house of the monastery itself.
A small-big trek that is surprisingly easy, close, scenic and culturally rich.
