Shivapuri day hiking is one of the best outdoor activities can be done around Kathmandu valley. If you are feeling annoyed by the crowd of the city probably Shivapuri Day Hiking would be the best choice for your retreat. This Shivapuri National Park covers the area of 159 Km2 and its home too many flora & fauna found in this territory. This is the nearest national park from Capital in the world and it has got some famous wildlife habitat like wild boar, Cat tiger, monkey, squirrel and so many different varieties of birds thus it could be heaven for bird watchers as well. There is a place called Baghwar where river Bagmati originates which is a lifeline of Kathmandu valley serving drinking water, irrigation & creating beauty in the valley.
Shivapuri day hiking starts from the Northern town called Budhanilkantha which is famous Hindu pilgrim site. After the hike leads towards uphill to Nagi Gompa (2330M) where Nuns practicing Buddhism can be seen which would be the best part of the hiking. Then the trail goes more upward towards Shivapuri Peak (2730M) the top of Shivapuri National Park and second highest place close to Kathmandu Valley.
Shivapuri day hiking goes through the northern side of Kathmandu valley starting from Budanilkantha which is famous Hindu & Buddhist pilgrim site. As we start doing uphill we can feel the fresh air and the chirping birdsong. As we reach the dense territory we can enjoy the chirping birds and breezing pine song. After reaching the Nagi gompa we spent some time there observing, doing meditation and launch. Excellent landscape view of Kathmandu valley can be seen on the clear days from there. The trail goes straight upward towards Shivapuri peak (2730M). Panoramic view of Himalaya can be seen from there on clear days and we have a crystal clear view of Gaurishankar, Langtang, Ganesh Himal & Manaslu. Trail descends down after exploring Shivapuri Peak. We come through Jhor where our car will pick us up. Its 10 KM drive from there to Kathmandu.
