Trek Overview

As you know Kathmandu is not only the political capital it is cultural and historical capital. Indeed it is, Kathmandu is known as the city of a temple where you can find deities in every step, you can find a shrine in every corner of the street. Historically the whole Kathmandu city used to be three kingdoms Kantipur, Patan, and Bhaktapur and was very prosperous while temples and monuments were built at that time. It was a medieval-era when culture, art, and literature were flourishing what we call the golden era of Nepali art and culture.

After entering into the sanctuary the trek goes through a forest that later reaches the village called Mulkharka 1560m and the trail goes deep into a sanctuary where we get to listen to the chirping song of the bird. This sanctuary is very famous for bird watching and some animal-like musk deer, cat tiger, wild boar, weasel, porcupine, honey badger, and pangolin can be seen during the trek. We stop first overnight at Chisapani 2180m which is famous for a panoramic view of the Himalaya including the Langtang region, the Rolwaling region, the Ganesh Himal region and the Everest region.
