Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

Chisapani Nagarkot is easy level of hike,  suitable for passionate walkers who have the ability to walk at least  5-6 hours a day with a light rucksack. As we will  get the highest elevation 1950 meter, you won't have to worry about acute mountain sickness ( AMS) though you are preferred an excellent health with average physical fitness then we can accomplish the trek successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly is good idea to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform Nepal alternative treks before booking the hike.

I really enjoyed during this short trekking to Chisapani- Nagarkot. The guide “Thal” is very kind and experienced. This is very good because most important thing is to share the silence of nature for me!!! The most beautiful part of this trip has been the Jungle part after Chisapani. Nobody was there, only me, the guide and the nature. The hotels were very simple in Chisapani but food was really good. Thanks a lot for your cooperation.

I had a great trip over my 5 days in Nepal. Only regret was that It went my so quickly and that I am not able to stay for longer. My guide Dilip shrestha was awesome and I highly recommend him for anyone else planning a trekking adventure in Nepal. Tej put together a great itinerary considering my stay was so short. All my emails and correspondence with Nepal alternative treks went very smoothly and professionally and all my questions were answered promptly and with all the information required. I had an amazing trip thanks in large part to Dilip and Nepal alternative trek; nothing but good things to say.
Cheers, Kunal

From Nature to culture, Nepal is heaven on earth. We liked it, loved it all because of our tour pleasure Tej ,  our guide Hari and Sarita. Hari and Sarita made us safe and enjoy.  They saw Nepali life and for sure we will definitely come back some day in our life to view in the mountain area to look at the real ethnic life of NEPAL !
At the end we would like to wish all the best to Tej and his team to keep up the great work they are doing.
Best wishes & regards,

Nepal is an overall full of adventures tour, very well supported by tej and his team. Special thanks to both of our guides Hari and Sarita, both were well informed about their areas. Especially Hari was sweet heart! He made us laugh and enjoy throughout the trip. The cultural & religious stories shared by Sarita will make us remember Nepal throughout our life. Tej was also a great support in making this trip/tour worthy after arrival we made changes to our plan around 3 times but never heard the word “ not possible” from Tej.
Inshallah will come back to Nepal next time for ABC or EBC !!!
Good luck to Tej and Team, well recommended!

This is my first visit to Nepal and this trek has been nothing short of perfect. Mr Dilip and our porter Mr. Lal were excellent nothing was too much trouble and the views were incredible! The highlight was the dawn trek up to poon hill to see the sun rise over the mountains. Mr. Tej arranged everything and after the trek for our trip to Bhaktapur for the Nepali new year. A fantastic trip with a fantastic company 11/10 if I ever come to Nepal again I’ll use this company without hesitation.
