Overview 

The Kathmandu 1-day Hiking Tour is for those who want to enjoy a brilliant walk in the outskirts of the valley. The hiking tour allows its participants to enjoy the beautiful green forests, meadows, and farmlands, which are abundant in the outskirts of the valley and discover the culture and customs of the Nepalese people along the way.

 

Alpine Club of Himalaya offers its clients two route choices for hiking:

  1. Hiking from Nagarkot to Changu Narayan Temple (3-4 hours)

We take a one-hour drive early in the morning to Nagarkot located 32 km east of Kathmandu Valley at an altitude of 2100m. Locals believe it to be one of the best places to watch the morning sun as it caresses Mt. Everest and the ever-soaring Himalayas. We then enjoy an authentic breakfast in the hills of Nagarkot, descend further and pass through beautiful villages with locally built stone houses painted with ochre. After walking for 3-4 hours, we reach the Changu Narayan Temple, a UNESCO world heritage site, where we are greeted by idols over 1000-years-old. We then end our journey by driving back to Kathmandu.

 

  1. Hiking in Shivapuri Hills (4-5 hours)

We take breakfast and drive to the Shivapuri Hill located 9 km north of Kathmandu. Situated at an altitude of 2563m, it is the second-highest hill around the valley. The 2-3 hours hike begins with a visit to the Narayanthan Temple, where you will greet by a big statue of Lord Vishnu resting atop a bed of serpents. We also pass through the Shivapuri Conservation area and visit the Nagi Gumba, a Buddhist monastery for nuns. Upon reaching the top of the hill, we get to witness the picturesque view of the snow-capped Himalayas surrounding the valley. Next, we hike downhill for about 2 hours and reach the Kopan Monastery, a Tibetan-styled monastery established in 1975. We then end our journey by driving back to Kathmandu.
