Champadevi, situated at an altitude of 2285 m south – west of Kathmandu, is a pilgrimage site having a Buddhist stupa and a Hindu shrine commands many pilgrims visit this place on full moon day. After breakfast at Hotel, we drive 19 kms south of Kathmandu for about an hour to a place called Pharping (on the way to Dakshinkali Temple)

Champadevi is a magnificent hill located at an altitude of 2285 m south – west of Kathmandu which is one of the most popular pilgrimage sites in the Hindu and Buddhist religions.

It is one of the best, easy, short enjoyable one day hiking trips in the southern hill of Kathmandu valley ideal for all people who would strive to take the stirring hiking adventure while enjoying the natural sceneries. This hike starts in the morning after an hour drive to Pharping village (19 km) on the way to Dakshinkali temple (a temple of goddess Kali).

Walking through the lush pine forest on well develop trail is really wonderful experience. The trail goes gradually uphill for about half an hour towards the north ridge and then ascends further through the beautiful forest to Champadevi. It will take approx. 2 hours to reach the top of the ridge. Most of the walk is along the ridge and offers a spectacular bird’s eye view of the Kathmandu valley and mountains. From here we can enjoy the superb view of central and western Himalayan range including Langtang, Gauri Shanker, Jugal, Dorge Lakpa and many others.

When you are leaving, the summit trail descends down to Hattiban through the dense forest which is rich with birds and other wildlife.
