A religious and natural exploration of the environs around the Kathmandu Valley, Champadevi Hike is your answer to taste the glimpses of what Nepal offers.
Champadevi Hike begins at Kathmandu. After an early morning breakfast, you’ll drive 19km south to Pharping on the way to DakshinKali temple. The hike begins at Pharping, an old Newari town. It is the place where Guru Rinpoche is said to have attained the enlightenment, hence, the place is home to numerous Buddhist monasteries. You’ll begin walking through the lush pine forest which goes gradually uphill for about half an hour. You’ll reach the northern ridge and ascend further to reach the revered site of Champadevi Temple. Champadevi Hill is the highest among the hills that surround the Kathmandu valley. The hike will last only a few hours which will take you to the top of the Champadevi ridge.
Along the way, you can enjoy the scenic panorama of the surrounding mountains namely Ganesh Himal (7422m), Annapurna (8091m), Langtang (7227m), Dorje Lakpa (6966m), and Gaurishankar (7134m). After enjoying the beautiful scenery, you’ll descend the same way back to Pharping and catch your commute back to the hotel. You can undertake Champadevi Hiking during spring (Mar-Jun) and autumn (Sep-Nov) seasons as they guarantee the best weather and accessibility.
