Champa Devi Hiking Traveler’s Review
Best Hike to Fulchowki But Long Day
I and two other friends hiked to Fulchowki forest hill and I really enjoyed my stay at Hilltop and Godavari Garden. Ammar the agency owner arranged everything like private transportation go and back, a packed lunch, and a hiking Guide from Kathmandu.
They are nice, friendly and really service-oriented people. The place is an escape from the usual city life as I was able to enjoy nature. The steps kept me on track with my fitness goals! Early April was also a perfect time because it’s not too hot and not too cold. I hope to come back again in the future 🙂

Thank you Lea for your time to review us for your hike at Phulchowki hill.
A full day hiking to Phulchowki Hill
The staff at this place was incredibly friendly and always responsive, ensuring we were well taken care of throughout our visit. Though the transportation was non-AC, it didn’t pose any issue as we traveled in early March 2022 when the weather was pleasant. Our guide, Ram, was not only super friendly but also shared captivating stories, including one about a ghost that intrigued us.
To top it off, we managed to squeeze in a visit to the beautiful Godavari Botanical Park, despite having limited time. The overall experience was truly fantastic, making the Phulchoki day tour a definite must-try if you find yourself with some free time during your stay in the Kathmandu valley.
