We will start our trek in Sundarijal, which is about 12 km from the city center. Sundarijal means beautiful water in Nepali. We will then climb uphill to Chisapani, which is a wonderful place for mountain view. You will get a beautiful view of mountains in the Langtang and Ganesh Himal range from Chisapani. We will follow the outer rim of Kathmandu Valley from Chisapani and hike to Nagarkot. Because the trekking takes place in the outer rim of the valley, this trek is also known as Kathmandu Rim Trek.

We will enjoy a wonderful night by the campfire in Nagarkot. We will descend down from Nagarkot, via the Changu Narayan Temple, and end our tour in Bhaktapur.
