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.

We found the agency via the Internet and only had a small time window of two special days. So I wrote Raj when and what to do and he organised everything we wanted.
We had a very good guide who was understanding and speaking English fluently. We managed to finish the hike in less than the planned time but it was a very good tour with great views!



Hiking Champadevi during Monsoon season

I was in Kathmandu on business with only one day set aside to get out and see the sights. I chose Champadevi because it wasn't too long or short, and it is supposed to have amazing views of the Kathmandu Valley and of the higher mountain ranges (though with Monsoon cloud cover, we couldn't see the Himalayas, bad timing on my part). The views from the rim of the Valley were exactly as billed, and my guide Madan was awesome every step of the way. My only advice is to bring leech socks during Monsoon, as they are everywhere during that season. I'd definitely come back and do this hike again in the dryer season, with no leeches and fewer slippery rocks. Either way, absolutely worth it.
