Trip description
Shivapuri Day Hiking tour is one of the most popular Hiking trail near by Kathmandu for bird watcher group and religious / pilgrimage travelers. Shivapuri National park is one of the nearest and second highest hill national park of Kathmandu valley, situated at an elevation of 2563m.
The good thing about hiking in Shivapuri area is that there are multiple options - whether to hike for just 2, 3 hours or for an entire day - there are choices. It is ideal for people visiting Nepal who cannot go for longer treks.

After breakfast, we drive 20 minutes to Budhanilkantha Temple, just 8 kms north of Kathmandu. Shivapuri conservation area is then within 10 minutes of walk. It is a protected forest with over 500 species. Our hike actually starts from the south side of the Shivapuri area. A short walk will take us past the army check post stationed there. Nagi Gompa at 2340m is another attraction - this is famous among foreigners and locals who want to practice Buddhism and meditation.

The trek above is somewhat steep through dense forest. The views of Kathmandu valley start getting more and more magnificent. It takes us about two hours to reach the top while we enjoy leisurely lunch with good views of the landscapes and hills.
