Day 2: Trek from Shivapuri (2523m.) to Dhap via Chisapani takes about five hours. The mountains greet us from northern side (left side) and hike slowly to gain the altitude. The summit of the hill welcomes us with the fascinating sight. From here the way through forest and 3 hours flat trail lead us to Chisapani.

In the clear weather the Himalaya range, stretching from Dhaulagiri in the west all the way past Everest to Kanchenjunga in the east, emerges from the darkness to greet the happy visitor with its awe inspiring majesty and beauty. An interesting trail takes us to the hill retreat of Nagarkot, perched on a ridge 32 km east of Kathmandu. It commands sweeping views of the Himalayas. Five of the world's ten highest peaks, Everest, Lhotse, Cho oyu, Makalu and Manaslu are visible from here. Nagarkot is also a popular spot to watch sunrise and sunset. The snow peaks look especially gorgeous during sunset and sunrise. Nagarkot, surrounded by terraced hillsides and picturesque farm houses, the hilltop resort is the epitome of an idyllic escape – with only the wind and the sound of rustling leaves to disturb us. Bird watching is a joy in the forests here. Overnight stay at hotel.

Day 4: Trek from Nagarkot to Dhulikhel takes about six hours. After we have our share of experiencing the magic of Nagarkot, we are guided along the hiking trails to Dhulikhel.
