Shivapuri Hiking Brief Insight

Shivapuri Hiking Highlights:

  • Visit the Nagi Gumba.
  • Hike through the Shivapuri National Park.
  • Panoramic views of the Langtang range and the Kathmandu city.
  • Explore the biodiversity of the Shivapuri National Park

With beautiful views of the Langtang Himalayas, mesmerizing nature, and a panoramic sight of the Kathmandu Valley, Shivapuri Hiking is one of the best hikes around Kathmandu Valley. The hike explores the northwest hill in the premise of the Shivapuri Nagarjuna National Park.

A steady walk through the meandering pathways reveals the abundant biodiversity of the national park along with a cultural exploration at the Shivapuri hilltop. The Himalayas and ravishing sceneries are the cherries on the top as the hike treads through the easiest trail to Kathmandu.

Shivapuri Hiking starts off early in the morning with a 30-minute ride to Nagi Gumba. At the Gumba, we obtain a permit to enter the Shivapuri National Park. During the permit process, you can utilize your time by exploring the beautiful architecture of the monastery.

The hiking starts from the government protected area, the Shivapuri National Park. The national park is home to more than 500 species of animals. With fresh air, the chirping of birds, and squeaks of a diverse range of wildlife, the hike continues along the tranquil rhododendron forests.

The Shivapuri hill at an elevation of 2732 meters offers clear panoramic views of the Langtang range. You can explore the panoramic views of the Himalayas and glorious landscapes from the hilltop to your heart’s content. Later, you return along the same route and reach the Nagi Gumba. A drive from the monastery leads you to Kathmandu.

As the hike is the closest accessible escape from the city life of Kathmandu, it can easily be completed by individuals with average fitness as well. The hike is also accessible throughout the year; however, autumn and spring bring out the best of views and trails on the hike.

  • star rating  尼泊尔5天小trip - 我和朋友的飞机是晚上到达加德满都机场。出了机场很顺利地就找到了接机的小伙伴,check in入住都十分顺利,我们的行程是第二天马上去纳加阔特看日出,所以当时就只定了一天的酒店,但是由于前一天有点累,第二天两个人居然睡过头了,但是酒店人员人很好,提醒了我们退房之后,还给了我们足够的时间收拾东西才退房。然后就直接是司机带我们去了纳加阔特。路上时间稍微有点久,但司机人很好,风景也不错,到了新酒店check in,刚刚好是看日落的时间。酒店老板很热情的招呼我们,还特意给我们说了很多明天看日出的小tips,然后我们就选了个位子坐下,喝喝酒,聊聊天,吹吹风,非常舒服。第二天设了闹钟,早早起来看日出,景色真的是太让人震撼,第一次有那种开阔的感觉。拍了很多很美的照片,然后就吃了早餐出发去博卡拉了。我们没有去trekking,因为时间有限,但在博卡拉就是各种悠闲散漫地生活,完全放空,什么都不想,望着鱼尾峰发呆,滑翔伞,在费瓦湖上泛舟,吃吃喝喝,泡泡吧,感受一下风土人情,还看到了一些当地的传统手工艺。虽然没能去trekking有点遗憾,但也给自己留一个再回去一次的理由。整个行程基本上只要说出自己的想法就都会被满足,很舒心,不用费心神,真的很放松,可以从忙忙碌碌的生活中抽身而出,过一种不一样的生活!
