Nagarkot Chisapani Trek – 2 night 3 day

3 Days


2 night 3 day Nagarkot Chisapani Trek is a short trek from Kathmandu that packs a punch with spectacular views and beautiful countryside, perfect for 3 days retreat and to add on your Nepal trip. If you are living and working in Nepal or traveling to Kathmandu and wondering what trek to limited time and want to experience trekking in Nepal, then dig out your hiking boots, get out of the city and come and enjoy a trek into a pristine environment, where the air is fresh, the locals are friendly and the views are pretty amazing. Nagarkot Chisapai Trek is a great trip to introduce hiking to your kids as well as it is easy going and just two days of walking.

Starting with a short drive to Nagarkot where you will enjoy magnificent, sunrise panoramas of the Langtang Himalayas, we then begin trekking through local villages and hilly landscapes, through the Shivapuri National Park to the beautiful settlement of Chisapani. Here you will enjoy fantastic sunset views and the warm hospitality of the local people. The second day is a down hill venture through the forests and local villages where you will see terraced fields and traditional houses perched on the hillside. When we reach Sundarijal, it is just a short drive back to Kathmandu where you can relax at home/hotel and enjoy the memories of the 3 days.

  1. Adventure of a lifetime
    By Larry Hewitts November 13, 2019
    I had some idea of what I wanted to see & do in Nepal: Kathmandu temples, the Himalayas and trekking, but it was Mosaic that pulled it all together so beautifully. However, what really made it an amazing trip was my utterly phenomenal guide, Sushil Nepal (yes, Nepal is actually his surname). I made it clear to Sushil when we met that I what I was most interested in was the "real" Nepal, and Sushil delivered beyond all expectations. Here are some highlights of my Nepal trip that was entirely due to Sushil's efforts to make my trip one to remember: * His introduction to goat curry and buffalo momo, washed down with Everest beer, while overlooking the Boudhanath stupa. * Hindu palm reading in the backroom of Sushil's uncle's Nepali homeopathic drug store. * Speaking to his friend of the family, the Kumari's caretaker to catch a glimpse of the living godess. * While trekking, arranging an impromptu meeting with an Untouchable family and seeing their home. * Having a cold beer and spicy Nepali snacks, with a view of the Himalayas while trekking through Nargakot. * Arranging for a three person motorcycle ride up rough and winding mountain roads for an amazing adventure. With any other guide, I would have had a great time. With Sushil, however, I had the Nepal adventure of a lifetime and made a wonderful friend.
  2. Good and patient guide
    By Sheila Lum October 16, 2019
    At very short notice just before the festival they organized & on a day which suited what I wanted. The guide was good and patient and helpful. The porter was excellent and we were a cheerful happy threesome.
  3. Very Positive Experience
    By Amanda Fairbank April 8, 2014
    I found Mosaic Adventure's review on tripadvisor and as it was so good booked my trip to Nepal through them. I did the Chitwan adventure and the Kathmandu Valley 3 day trek. Madhav patiently provided answers to all my queries and organised everything to connect with the extra activities I requested. It was a breeze having them organise it all as it all ran smoothly - drivers arrived on time to take us to our next destination. Our guides were all very knowledgeable and pleasant and our drivers very skilled considering the mayhem that is traffic in Nepal. When I tore a calf muscle while trekking Madhav easily organised a driver to collect me and drive the last leg to meet my companion at the end of the trek. Overall a very positive experience!
