Introduction to Champadevi Hiking

Champadevi Hiking is a famous day hiking around the Kathmandu Valley. With a height of 2,278 meters, this hill is the third highest hill in the Kathmandu Valley. From Champadevi, beautiful views of Kathmandu Valley including Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur districts can be observed. Champadevi Hill is also a great destination to see Ganesh Himal, Annapurna, Langtang, Gaurishankar, Jugal, Dorge Lakpa, etc.

If you have only 1 day and want to see the entire Kathmandu Valley and the beautiful mountains around it in a short time, Champadevi can be the best destination. During the Champadevi hiking, you can also see the historical places of Nepal like the Bagmati river, Bugmati, Khokan, Pharping, etc. To the right of Champadevi is Phulchoki hill and to the left is Chandragiri hill (the highest hill around Kathmandu valley).

Frequently asked questions about this trip

What is altitude sickness?

Altitude sickness is normally known as acute mountain sickness. This can happen when people rapidly climb up to an altitude of more than 3000 meters. We ensure minimal risk by adding rest to our trekking itineraries. Most people will feel some effects of altitude, some shortness of breath and possibly light headache, this is normal enough. Acute mountain sickness patients are quite different and usually have a serious headache, sickness, and lose awareness.
