We drive to a trailhead at Sundarijal and gradually hike uphill to Mulkharka (1768m). On the second day, we walk along the valley rims with great views of mountains, then get to Chisapani (2194m) from where some superb views of the Himalayas and sunrise/sunset views can be observed. The next day we make our camp at Chauki. Likewise, the next day we trek along the way to Nagarkot(2020m), the best vantage point for mountains and sunrise views.
