At 2285 meters high, Champadevi is the third largest hill that surrounds Kathmandu valley and acts as the border in the southeastern corner of the valley separating it from the Makawanpur district.
Beside the hiking experience, this hill has a Buddhist Stupa and people hike to this place especially on the day of the full moon to pay homage to the lord.
Champadevi Day Hike starts from a place called Pharping which lies 16 Km south of Kathmandu, from where we hike up following the trail covered by pine forest for about 3 hours to reach Champadevi.
The hilltop offers a magnificent view of the Himalayan ranges, especially Langtang and Annapurna. After lunch and strolling around for some time, we hike down following the same trail for about an hour and half.
This hike can be a great add on if you have a free day in Kathmandu or simply want to be one on one with nature.
