    Champadevi Hiking 1 days

    Champadevi Hiking leads you to short country walks beyond the Kathmandu valley rim. It takes place on the southern end of Kathmandu and Lalitpur city areas and close to Kirtipur a small city. The short drive leads you to scenic and cultural walks visiting rural country villages enriched with traditional farm life since ancient times.

    Champa-wati is the actual name for Champadevi, a place with a temple on high green hill dedicated to Goddess Champa Devi one of the many manifestations of Goddess Parvati or Durga. It is said that protects the valley from evils, a story and belief among the villagers with their simple farm life.

    It is a great scenic hike for few hours to escape the busy city metropolitan life with some change within tranquil environment. You can walk through the forest of lovely rhododendron and pine trees facing outstanding views of Kathmandu city. It also offers the amazing views of snow capped peaks towards the north.

    The drive leads us for an hour or shorter to reach the holy spot of Pharping. And here, you can find the sacred meditation caves of the great Buddhist Guru Padmasambhava, known as Guru Rinpoche. He is a 7th Century guru who traveled from India en route to Tibet and stayed at Pharping on meditation for a few years. And then, he headed toward his destination in Tibet.

    From Pharping, a slow steep climb takes you to the Champawati or Champa Devi hilltop. Then, you can visit and get blessed in the temple of the Champa Devi Goddess. Also, one can enjoy the excellent views of Kathmandu Valley and mountain views from the top. Finally, we returned to the hotel after an exciting short journey on Champadevi Hiking.
