On the first day, we take a 1.5 hour drive from the capital Kathmandu to Sundarijal where we will start walking. The first part of the trek involves passing through waterfalls, Sundarijal dam, and various rice terraces overlooking the Shivapuri-Nagarjun National Park. We take a moderate ascent through paved staircases and dried grasslands in the middle of the forest while passing through various villages until we reach Chisapani. Over night will be at a guest house in Chisapani where spectacular views of the Langtang range abound during daytime.

From Chisapani, we start trek through small villages in semi-paved dirt road. Mountain views may be scarce during the earlier parts, but beautiful scenery overlooking the valley will be present later on at the northern side of the trail. We continue trekking for 7 hours until we reach Nagarkot, a busy village with clusters of hotels and restaurants with magnificent views.
Day 03 - Trek from Nagarkot to Dhulikhel (1550m)
We start the day by trekking for an hour from Nagarkot until we reach the Nagarkot view tower which boasts of spectacular view of the entire Himalayas during fair days. From the tower, we will walk through the forest for another hour until we reach various terrace farmland and villages. We will reach Dhulikhel shortly after.
