What to Expect
The Shivpuri national park is located in the northwest part of Kathmandu. It is approximately 13 km from the city. It is the second highest hill near the Kathmandu valley at approximately 2732 altitude.

Take a full day hike in Shivapuri  National Park. On this trip, you will observe the beauty of the area's greenery surroundings to the top of the Shivapuri hill. It is best for those visitors who don't have the time or no interest to go for longer trekking. The hill is full of natural beauty, a paradise for bird watchers lovers. Inside the forest, can find more than 500 species of animals.

In the morning around 8 am, you will be picking at your hotel by driver and guide. After 20 minutes driving will arrive the Budhhalinkantha temple. This is the famous pond temple with large approx 30 feet statue of the reclining Vishnu god.

After there, the driver will take up the hill near the gate of Shivapuri National Park. This forest area is under government protection. From here we will start our full day hike.

Be ready to climbs stairs and natural trail consist of stone steps. It is a steep uphill hike along narrow trails that gradually lead up to Shivapuri. Continue on to pass by the starting point of the Bagmati River, and your surroundings will beckon you to rest and enjoy the beauty of the forest. Slowly and gently lead up to the peak. On the way, can find Nagigumba, the only ladies monastery where nuns can practice Buddhism. Also, the foreigners often visit for meditation.

Finally, you will reach the peak, from where can see the Lang tang Mountain Range and whole Kathmandu valley. You can enjoy your lunch over here.
