Champadevi Hiking Blog: One Day Hike From Kathmandu

Champadevi Hiking Blog: We were planning one day hiking to Champadevi (2285m), Bhasmasur(2278m) and Chandragiri (2551m) hills.

Getting ready for our Campadevi One Day Hike

We are engaging Meghraj Oli and Dinesh Singh in this Champadevi Hill Day Hike because we plan to let them guide our future volunteers and visitors who are interested in doing some short treks in Kathmandu Valley.

We are not charging our volunteers for this one day hike, however, we would prefer donation in return. The cash received will help Meghraj and Dinesh in their daily expenses.

Our Champadevi Hiking Route Map is as per below:

Simple Route Map, total duration of our Champadevi Hiking is 9 hours.

Champadevi One Day Hiking Route = Chovar → Taudaha Lake → Bosan DaDa → Pandey Chhap → Chhap Bhanjyang → Champadevi Hill → Bhasmasur Hill → Chandragiri Hill → Machchhegaun. Then take a taxi and head back to SCIF Nepal.

04.00pm: Time to go back home. We walked to Machchhegaun,

05.00pm: From Machchhegaun we aboard on a taxi and went home.

06.00pm: We reach home. Our Champadevi Hill Day Hike ends here.

If you only want to do a really short hike, then you can go to nearby Taudaha Lake and Back, it will only take 2 hours to and back SCIF house.

We wish our volunteers can trust the kids to lead them to nearby attractions so we can earn a living from your donation.

It is getting harder and harder for SCIF to survive. Our monthly rental is at 60 000 NPR and we are in need of the cash to pay for the house rental so the kids still a house to stay in.

Hope Meghraj and Dinesh can do well and help out in the house expenses soon.
