Champadevi hiking is a new day hiking trail around Kathmandu valley, which is about 16 km from the Kathmandu city. This is an easy and pleasant day hike in the southern hill of Pharping village. Passing through greenery farmlands, Buddhist monasteries, and greenery pine forest will make your hike memorable.
We will be hiking about 7 miles, the hike started innocently at the beginning but the fairly route will get steeper while getting closer to the top. From the Champadevi hill (2285m) we will we can observe bustling Kathmandu city, local villages and Panoramic Mountains including Langtang, Gauri Shankar, Jugal, Dorje Lakpa and other. There are no hotels and tea houses on this trail so we will take a packed lunch.
From Champa Devi Hill we can see Kathmandu Valley, Patan, Bungamati, and Bhaktapur valley. If you want to spend a night nearby then Hattiban Resort can be a good place. The resort is very quiet, clean and on top of the hill into the pine forest.

Bhumi Raj Tiwari and Bhim Koirala, both at them were great. It was my first time hiking in such high hills and they were super patient and nice with me. IT was one of my best experience, though it was challenging as a first time hiker to this height and with this level at elevation.
