Chisapani may be reached by walking for roughly 4-5 hours, after a 1:30 minute drive from  Kathmandu to Sundarijal 32 km. The climb, which is located in Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park, leads through leafy forests, waterfalls and through bubbling springs. 

The Chisapani Nagarkot Trek is carried inside the Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park, and entry to the park without a permit is illegal. The 159 sq km Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park is located on the northern edge of the Kathmandu Valley and Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park is separated by a 14-kilometer distance from the city centre.The actual distance on the road to Shivapuri is 35.7 kilometers. In 2002, the region was established as the eighth national park of Nepal. It was governed by the Shivapuri Watershed Development Board before becoming a national park, and it eventually became the Shivapuri Watershed and Wildlife Reserve. 

Moreover, if you travel counter-clockwise, Chisapani is the first camp on the Langtang Gosainkunda trek, a famous Hindu pilgrimage site: if you travel clockwise, it is the last destination.
