Shivapuri Hiking

Shivapuri Hiking

Shivapuri, situated at an elevation of 2563m north of Kathmandu, is the second highest hill around Kathmandu valley. Bagdwar, source of holy river Bagmati, is located near Shivapuri. 
 
Early in the morning, you drive from Kathmandu to Muhan Pokhari for about 30 minutes. After passing through the official formalities at the Shivapuri Park entrance gate, you will begin your hike through Shivapuri watershed and wildlife area.

Beyond the monastery, the trail goes steep uphill through the oak, rhododendron and bamboo forest for another three hours. 
 
From here one can enjoy the beauty of snowy Himalayas such as Ganesh Himal, Langtang-Lirung, Dorji etc. You then take a shortcut downhill to Budhanilkantha and drive back to Kathmandu

    Beautiful Trip

    Beautiful trip through Shivapuri National Park. Our guide Karmajit was knowledgable, friendly and good at cards. Porter Ganesh did flirty work on his first trek. A fantastic introduction to trekking in the Himalayas and we will definitely return for a greater challenge.
