Sundarijal day hike from Kopan Monastery is the famous tour package for the people who want to do day hike around 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 '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 Bagmati River (a holy river for Hindus). Another attractive things of 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. Sundarijal shows its beauty for the adventure sports lover. It is also represented as one of the gateways for Langtang- Gosaikunda trek.

You can enjoy the wider valley view (more than the 180-degree view) from here. You will love to take pictures and even enjoy the local taste of tea at the small tea shops. A small yet beautiful Tamang village is visible from this location. 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 walking for about 2 hours and 30 minutes, we reach Mulkharka for lunch. Mulkharka is like a Lunch Station where hikers and trekkers stop by to have a proper lunch. After lunch, we walk for about 30 minutes and reach Sundarijal, passing through Bagmati River. You might also see waterfalls. You can take pictures, enjoy the greenery, peaceful surrounding and 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. On the way, we now 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. 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. We Himalayan Trekkers assure you that you will experience one of the great hike experience after walking through this trail.
