Trip Highlights

  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Adore the amazing views of mountains and green Hills
  • Soak up the atmosphere on a walking tour
  • Enjoy fantastic aerial views

Champa Devi hill is one of the Best Destination for a day hike and also a very popular hiking route near and around Kathmandu valley. This hill is one of the highest hills surrounding the Kathmandu valley by the height of 2278meter. It is the third-highest hill surrounding the Kathmandu valley.
Champadevi hill gives a real chance to visualize the whole Kathmandu Valley with a panoramic vision. Not only the Kathmandu valley- Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur districts, from here we also can have a beautiful view of Kirtipur and Pharping village district respectively. Even this hiking spot gives a view of very beautiful mountains such as Mt. Ganesh, Mt. Langtang Lirung, Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Gaurishankar and Mt. Everest too. With a natural view of mountains and valley, it also provides the opportunity to learn about the culture and tradition of the local people. It’s the best place to live the village life.
We also observe historical places there. Bagmati River which has a great Hindu faith, Pharping, and Dakshinkali temple is so amazing to look up from the top of the Champa Devi Hill. More to this we also have great views of the village of Bungmati and Khokana too. The important point of this trip is that we follow the trail many villagers using for entering the valley and prayers visiting there to several worshiping places of Hindus and Buddhists. So for one-day hiking, this is the best destination to view everything in a short period as this place is full of gifts in a little area.

early in the morning, we drive to Hattiban Resort where we spend little time for rest and continue our hiking. with 3 hours of walking, we reach the top which offers the most amazing views of the entire Kathmandu valley in front of gigantic hills and Background of Himalayas. After some time for acclimatization and exploration of the area, we walk down and drive back to the Hotel.
Hiking is always best for preparation for trekking and pre trekking exercise. Luxury Holidays Nepal offers several other hiking packages. You can also do Nagarkot Changunarayan HikingNagarkot Dhulikhel day Hiking with Sunrise and mountain view and Shivapuri National Park Day Hike

Great views of Kathmandu valley

Great views of Kathmandu valley


I made Champadevi hiking before my Everest base camp Trek. It was so good to hike as a pre trekking exercise. I did around 6/7 hours of walking. I got amazing views of the entire Kathmandu valley. Views of mountains and hills are also so good. On the way, I also met peoples going to Champa Devi Temple for worshiping.

Before the start of walking, I was driven in a luxury tourist vehicle and also driven back in the same car, Renault Duster car. I was treated very well by the guide and LHN Team. With that great help and support of the Luxury Holidays Nepal, I got amazing chance to experience the culture and village life the Nepalese people, thanks to luxury holidays for so.
