Day Hike to Champadevi


Day hike to Champadevi

Champadevi is a high hill to the south west of Kathmandu. This is one of the best hiking around the valley to observe the view of Kathmandu valley and Himalayas to the North (Manaslu Himalayan range, Gahesh Himal, Langtang, Gaurishanker and Mt. Everest to the east in a clear day.)

After a 30m drive to the lap of hill, the hiking starts (Lanagol) with steep walking. The hiking can be bit slippery in a wet day but offers a wide range of Himalaya. As the trail hikes the view seems amazing. The bird eye view of the valley, the Bagmati River, monkey temple, Patan durbar square, Bungamati and Khokana can be pointed from the route. After hiking 1:00hr, you will arrive at a small tiny Bosan village (Pass). The houses are traditional and old type with cultural Tamang people. You will be passing through a small Gumpa and prayer flags around.

After walking about 1:30 hr you will see wider range of the view. The view is better from here and you will have a option whether you would like to complete to the top or start going down. Once you arrive to the top, there is small shrine where Hindu and Buddhist people visit in different time of the year. The local people from Kirtipur and Kathmandu visit this hill and Champadevi temple in Nepalese New Year.
This is a pure nature hiking with fresh air and cultural people on the way. The mountain views from Champadevi hill is much wider and beautiful compared to Nagarkot. Once you will arrive to the top, we can enjoy the view, have some pack lunch, and then we will hike down to Kritipur where our car will be waiting.
