Chisopani to Panauti Trek
This uniquely designed trek encircles the four great trekking places, guaranteeing the best feeling of nature coupled with picturesque views of neatly terraced villages & fields and spectacular mountains. Together, they make up a great trekking experience!
Chisopani (2194m) is a perfect introduction to the Langtang region; it's mostly popular for beautiful sunrise and sunset views. We ascend towards ‘Nagarkot’ from Chisapani; Nagarkot at an elevation of 2175 m is the most popular hill-station of Kathmandu. Nagarkot is so much more than just a view-point of sunrise or sunsets; it’s a great place to relax your mind and body and for once escape the daily routine hectic life.
After a great stay at Nagarkot, our trek marches towards another equally excellent hill-station of ‘Dhulikhel’. Dhulikhel is a great spot to enjoy an impressive view of the snowy central Himalayas making a backdrop to the gentle hills. It is an old Newari trade station en route to the Tibetan plateau and today it is an ideal place for visitors to enjoy natural environment, the local lifestyle, old Newari culture and spectacular views. From Dhulikhel, the trail heads towards ‘Panauti’, another historical Newar city with a few prominent icons such as ‘the Indreswor temple’ and ‘Durbar square’ found in the town center. Panauti is quaint and interesting destination of Nepal. It feels as if has been left exactly the way the founders had built the town. A nostalgic atmosphere covers the narrow town streets and ancient structures.
This trek starting from the serene deep forests, to the ancient city of ‘Panauti’ makes a perfect trek that guarantees to create memories to last you a lifetime.
