Shivapuri Day Hiking is one of the popular day hiking trips in Kathmandu Valley.
This hiking trip takes place inside the Shivapuri National Park in the northern part of Kathmandu Valley. Shivapuri Day Hiking is not only a hiking trip but also a great day out into the lush jungle to enjoy the flora and fauna. Shivapuri Day Hiking into the park also brings the chance to witness several species of birds.
The actual hiking starts from the bottom of Shivapuri Hill and proceeds upward into the national park after checking into the security checkpoint. Along the way, you will come across a monastery called Nagi Gumpa that provides an awesome view of the Kathmandu valley. As a matter of fact, is the only national park inside Kathmandu Valley. Thus, the lush jungle in the park holds varieties of flora and fauna. A guided hiking trip inside the national park will bring you excellent opportunities to witness nature at its best.
The view of the valley from the height is also equally charming as nature there. The trip is a nice escape from the city crowd of Kathmandu. The beautiful and serene atmosphere of the national park helps in making the day worthy of spending.
