"The Chisapani Nagarkot Hiking is a great way to get yourself close to the mountains while still staying relatively close to the capital."
It is an ideal trekking option for travelers who would love to rejoice in the natural beauty of the environment close to the city without having to travel long distances. The Nagarkot Chisapani Hiking is a great way to get away from the chaos of the bustling city and to immerse yourself in the serenity of the natural environment. The changing of the urban setting into a natural one with forests, hills, and waterfalls as one gets farther away from Kathmandu is a compelling way to enjoy the country’s diverse terrain in a relatively close-knit parameter. Walk along rough trails that enter through the Shivapuri National Park via a watershed and lose your worries to the sound of bird’s melodies filling up the ambiance. The woodlands surrounding the hiking path offers a beautiful experience of being close to nature and the park’s biodiversity is also a prominent notable feature. Walking up the stone-carved path, the acreage opens up to snow-covered mountains towering in the distance.
The views of the Himalayan peaks stay to provide a beautiful foreground to the green terrain as the hiking trail descends down to Chisapani. Trekkers are presented with the experience of viewing the mountain peaks in a most comfortable setting while hiking to Chisapani. The way to Nagarkot is even more riddled with the abundance of green foliage and panoramic views of the mountain peaks. Encountering animals in their natural habitat, the hike to Nagarkot is one of the pleasantries and natural beauties. There are many vibrant villages along the way as well, making for a short respite and offering an insight into the cultural and traditional aspect of the people’s lives. The rolling hills and the forests that cover the terrain are the main highlights of the hike, along with amazing panoramic views of the Himalayan peaks. It is a rejuvenating hike that really restores the mind to its peaceful form. The muddling busyness of the city-life melts away on the hike, as the only urban setting that occurs throughout the trip is the gaping view of the valley from the vantage point at Nagarkot. The panorama of the mountain, the natural environments and the small villages along the hike make the Chisapani Nagarkot Hiking perfect short getaway!
