Time to get away from busy streets and back to nature with 2 Days camping trip with our Apex Himalaya Colleagues. An amazing camping trip to Dallu, Pharping followed by hiking to Champadevi would be great short hike trip to refresh your weekend.
Champadevi Hill lies in the southeast part of Kathmandu valley at the elevation of 2278 m. Start your hike from camping side making sure you wear your sunscreen and sun hat to protect your skin from harsh sun. The hiking trails are well managed and maintained so it will be easy to walk and find route. We can capture mesmerizing view from the top of Champadevi of different mountains such as Mt Everest, Mt Annapurna, Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Gauri Shankar, and more. Besides mountain, one can enjoy wide angle view of Kathmandu valley. Pharping village, Chandragiri hill, Phulchoki hill, Bhasmasur Danda can also be seen from top.
Note: Please collect the waste and dispose properly before leaving the site.

Route to camping destination

Champadevi trail is perfect place for day hike; with camping a day before is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lover. Midday or early start from Kathmandu to Hattiban a day before hike takes one hour ride to the destination. Riding motorbikes, cycling or driving in car would be the best option to travel to our destination. The destination is approximately 20 KM drive from Kathmandu by motorbike or by car. One can get sufficient parking area near Hattiban resort area or you can park near your campsite. You can get enough camping spots where you can set up your tent and other necessary supplies. We can easily collect firewood for camping fire inside jungle. (Make sure you would not harm protected trees and animals nearby). Be aware with snakes and venomous animals that can be sometimes seen in those area. Once you set up your camp site safely, you can start your food making process while enjoying on your hammock time to time. There is no portable water nearby that area. So make sure to bring enough water jar for your camp. Music in the middle of jungle would be great relief and soothing (trust me on that). Playing games and enjoying nature would be great outdoors excitement during camping. Enjoying your night inside tent would be great experience after your long spends time inside your house. Star gazing and sound of flies, birds takes you to the serene mode of night sleep. Early morning one can start the day with a perfect sunshine and a cup of coffee. Following with light breakfast such as bread and Jam would be enough to start your hike towards Champadevi early.
