Sundarijal day hike from Kopan Monastery is one of the famous tour packages around the Kathmandu valley. Kathmandu, being a small city with its unique bowl shape surrounded by mountains, gives you hundreds of hiking trails around its territory. Among them, one of the famous trails is the 'Sundarijal Day Hike from Kopan Monastery'.
Kopan Monastery is open for all those who want to do yoga, meditation, and retreat. Sundarijal(15km northeast of Kathmandu )is an attractive destination to all the tourists as we cross over the Bagmati River (a holy river for Hindus). Another attractive thing about Sundarijal is a man-made reservoir, which looks astonishing in the middle of the forest. Additionally, you will get to see the waterfalls during the monsoon season. It is also represented as one of the gateways for the Langtang- Gosaikunda trek. You can enjoy the wider valley view (more than the 180-degree view) from here.
Our vehicle will pick you up from the hotel. We drive directly to Kopan Monastery (or Kopan Gumba) for about 1 hour (if there is no heavy traffic). After a short excursion at Kopan Monastery, we start our day hike from Kopan Monastery to Sundarijal. Now, we continue our hike enjoying the trail passing through the beautiful green forest, where we can encounter the different species of birds, animals, butterflies, and insects. After lunch at Mulkharka, we walk for about 30 minutes and reach Sundarijal, passing through the Bagmati River. You can take pictures, enjoy the greenery, peaceful surrounding, and encounter varieties of flora and fauna species. On your journey, you will hear the Chirbir sound of birds and insects, whispering of the wind and leaves, and the relaxing sound of waterfalls and rivers. We then reach Tarebhir, which is an entry point of Shivapuri Nagarjuna National Park (The youngest National Park nearby Kathmandu Valley). You can enjoy two different experiences from a day hike. i.e- Man-made beauty and Natural beauty.
We Himalayan Trekkers assure you that you will experience one of the great hike experience after walking through this trail.
