Champadevi hiking is one of the most exciting hiking destinations in the Kathmandu valley. It is situated to the southwest of Kathmandu at the altitude of 2285m. It offers us a breathtaking, the combination of white mountain ranges like Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Gaurishanker and the high hills on its lap with the capital city Kathmandu. The Kathmandu valley with three sister cities, Bhaktapur, Lalitpur and Kathmandu and the flowing Bagmati river through the city is amazing. Not only the view but also the Hindu temple and the Buddhist stupa in Champadevi hiking trail is another attraction.
The hiking starts from Pharping after around 50m drive from Thamel and it takes the upward trail almost about 3hrs to reach Champadevi. The beautiful forest of pine trees, Cherries, walnut trees are very nice to walk through. The panoramic landscape of Pharping village with the Buddhist monasteries are the key attractions while walking up. Upon reaching Champadevi, taking a 10m private time for meditation or photograph is what we offer you on this trip. In the middle of the meadow with the exciting view, we can't wait longer for our pack lunch. There is also an option for advancing ahead to Bhasmasur danda to the west ridge which is higher than Champadevi. We will walk down the same trail to get back to Kathmandu. There is also another trail to get back to Kathmandu via Machhegau but the trail is rough and steep down. We organise this hiking throughout all the year.
