Kathmandu Valley rim hike with amazing views!


Champa Devi, located in the south of Kathmandu city, is another great option for hiking just on the opposite to Shivapuri hill.

The hike begins from Dolu after a drive of about an hour. The most of walks are along the ridge that offers spectacular mountains views with the bird's eye views of Kathmandu valley in front. Though the hike does not go as high as in Shivapuri the raptors can be seen soaring below the trails.
The top of the hill is enshrined with a sacred place where locals perform the ritual on the auspicious days. The last part of the trail is steep downhill to the village of Champa Devi, though the forest of rich bird life.
Once arrived in the valley floor, you will be driving back to Kathmandu through the historic town of Kirtipur and university area.

Meeting Point Options: Hotel, Address or Intersection, Suggested by Guide: The best place to meet would be by the hotel/guest house you are staying and any other places, provided that is inside the ring road, not outside or far from the town area.

End Point Options: Hotel, Address or Intersection

Duration: 7 hours

The hike usually takes place but the extreme weather, the traffic some point to go the the starting point that usually takes about 20-60 minute can affect in someway.

Transportation

Good standard of private car (Toyota mainly but other brands of similar standard) for 3 people. It will be used, occasionally, 4 wheel drive due to the road conditions. However, when we have more people, transportation will be arranged accordingly.

Other: ~Guiding service
~Private transportation
(to and from starting and end point to your hotel or at any agreed point)

Estimated Local Cash Needed

1500 Nepali Rupees - You may need this for water, food or anything that you may think of getting on along the way or when we stop by the local store, though you may not spend at all.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our guide was excellent, friendly, and prepared with water/food. However, this hike can be considered more a feat of aerobic endurance than being immersed in the beauty of nature. The descent on wet days is treacherous for all levels of hiking, and therefore, I would rate this hike to be a intermediate +. Some panoramic views of the nepalese mountains were inspiring and unforgettable, making this hike worthwhile. Be prepared for extreme fluctuations in temperature and dress accordingly in light layers.
