Shivapuri Trekking

Shivapuri Trekking

Shivapuri trekking is a very short but pleasant trip around Kathmandu valley. This trekking could be a good choice for those who do not want a long and strenuous trek. The trip begins with an early morning drive from Kathmandu to Buddhanilkantha and then we walk uphill until we reach the Shivapuri National Park entrance gate. At this check point you have to show the permits and then head for Shivapuri watershed forests and wildlife area. We walk through pine and cherry forest until we reach Nagi Gompa where a nunnery monastery is located. The trail is uphill climb and we walk for about 3 hours above the Nagi Gompa (nunnery) to reach Shivapuri hill (2732m), the highest point of this trekking. From the top of Shivapuri hill, a spectacular view of Himalayan mountain range from Manaslu, Ganesh himal, Langtang, Dorje Lakpa, Shisapangma to Gaurishankar can be observed.

In addition, Shivapuri trekking itinerary offers wilderness, great views of Kathmandu valley, small villages and terraced fields. The narrow trail takes you through dense Oaks and Rhododendron forests and peaceful villages where rural village life outside of Kathmandu can be experienced. And, in the backdrop the magnificent presence of the Himalayan peaks are always there to greet every trekker. Because of close proximity and easy access from Kathmandu, as well as having diverse cultural and ecological diversities and beautiful Himalayan mountain views, it has now become one of the most popular treks in Nepal. Trekking to Shivapuri National Park is all about experiencing the real freedom in a beautiful, unspoiled natural environment.

Trekking to Shivapuri hill can be organized throughout the year with each season bringing in a different flavor and color to landscape of the Shivapuri area.
