Chisapani to Nagarkot Trekking Tour

A Taste of the Nepalese Himalaya

Bespoke Holiday Run at Your Convenience

From £745, 6-day tour – Sightseeing excursions and a short 3 day trek

Nargarkot Mountain View

Be whisked away from the frenetic, fast paced streets of Kathmandu and into the tranquillity of the mountains in under an hour. This short, but sweet trek brings you into the lush, forested trails of Shivapuri National Park, following cascading rivers and offering a glimpse of authentic village life in the Himalaya. The wildlife is abundant with over 300 species of birds and is home to langur monkeys, Asiatic bears, mongoose and the tiny Himalayan pika.

You’ll experience a steady flow of stunning views and panoramas of the world’s greatest mountains, including: Dorje Lakpa, Ganesh Himal, Manaslu, Annapurna, Gauri Shankar, Dhaulagiri and Mt. Everest. Nothing beats watching the sunrise as the white-capped peaks are lit slowly by the spreading light.

This short trek is perfect for families, first time trekkers, and ideal if you don’t have much time, but still want to experience what it’s like to trek in the Himalaya.

Travelling to Nepal

You will need a passport with 6-month’s validity and you will need to obtain a Nepalese visa. The easiest way to get the visa is to buy it on entry to Nepal with either dollars or any major currency but not Nepali Rupees. Currently the cost for a single-entry visa valid for 15/30/90 days costs US$30/50/125. You can buy a visa in advance from the Neplese embassy in your home country if they have a location there. It is more expensive than buying it on arrival in Kathmandu and it doesn’t always save you time when you arrive as it is random which queue is longer. You also have to risk sending your passport off and they may take it for several weeks. You will need to buy travel insurance for your trip which you can find out about here. You also need to visit your GP or travel health professional at least 4-6 weeks before your trip to check what vaccinations you need.

For more information about travelling safely and obtaining passports you can see more at the FCO know before you go Travel Aware Campaign.

Why don’t we use domestic flights in Nepal?

All airlines in Nepal are on the EU blacklist. This means they don’t meet international safety standards. Lost Earth Adventures is passionate about giving every one of our customers the best possible experience but we will never compromise your safety to do so. Instead of domestic flights, we use private 4x4s to drive you to the start of your trek. You may see searing vistas, traditional villages and lush rice paddies along the way.
