After we meet and have breakfast early in the morning. We drive to Sundarijal, one of the busy picnic spots in the Kathmandu valley in the public holiday. This is a mixed road with natural plants and wild animals such as deer, leopard, wild cat and others various kinds of butterflies and birds. All these things are combined with majestic mountain views that can be seen from here. Then we hike to Chisapani, walking through a few settlements and a lot of forest with variety of birds and chances of sighting animals.
After spending night at Chisapani we head towards Nagarkot from Chisapani. This is a relatively demanding day that requires you to walk for about 7 hours. But the trail passes mostly through dense forest of the national park, making you forget the tiredness. We pause our hike for a while in Chauki Bhanjyang or Jhule to have lunch and take a short rest. Then we continue along the idyllic countryside to Nagarkot, a hilltop to the east of Kathmandu offers unmatched scenery of innumerable peaks along a large section of the Himalayas. Surely the setting sun fires your spirit and inspires your imagination with the shades of colour it leaves on the Himalayas. In the evening, stay in a good hotel of the area.
Wake up early in the morning today to welcome once-in-a-lifetime sunrise view. Before the fresh morning rays reach your eye, they hit the tip of the peaks and majestically descend downwards. The shine of rays and the glimmer of snow-clad tops and slopes of mountains completely mesmerizes your senses. After having breakfast, you can choose to hike to Changunarayan, a UNESCO world heritage site. Overnight at Bhaktapur.
Today we will explore the historical Bhaktapur Durbar Square. The main square of the city contains innumerable temples and other architectural showpieces like the lion gate, the statue of King Bhupatindra Malla, the picture gallery, the golden gate, the palace of 55 windows, the Batsala temple, etc. After exploring Bhaktapur we will get back to Kathmandu.
