Hike the Shivapuri to see 8000'ers | Day Tour

Shivapuri Watershed and Wildlife Reserve situated about 20 km north of Kathmandu is best spot to make a day hike or a bird watching trip. A combination visit of Budhanilkantha, the holy site of the sleeping god Vishnu is a worth taking trip to anyone who has not much time to go around.

You will enjoy a moderate hike with your guide through the woodlands of Shivapuri National Park to Nagi Gompa, a hilltop Buddhist monastery where panoramic views of the Kathmandu valley abound can be seen. After spending time with Nun, having lunch snapping some unforgettable photos, descend down the hill and continue hiking through the woodlands, past waterfalls and out of the forest until you reach bus stand where our bus will be waiting for you.

For those who are interested in birding, this is the best place to be in. Some of the birds in the area are the Laughing Thrush, Crested Serpent Eagle, little Pied Fly Catchers, Babblers, Pheasants, Magpies, Sunbirds, Ruby and many more.

We did a one day hike in the kathmandu valley as we didnt have time for a long trek in the himalayas.The service was great in particular our guide Birman who was fantastic. As it turned out the weather prevented us from having a good view at the top (Shivapuri peak) but of course that is not the trekking teams fault and they provided an excellent service throughout at a keen price.

 

The hike up Shivapuri was long and hard, with thousands of steps all the way up. The views at the top were impressive, at least on that day, with a panorama from the distant Annapurna Range and the impressive Manaslu to the white peaks of Ganesh Himal and the Langtang range. From one point some way up there was also a good view of the Everest region, with Makalu but not Everst visible. I found that the summit views were disappointing, but there is a better viewpoint a few hundred meters before. They must build a viewing tower! Overall, I am happy to have done the day hike.
 

 

We booked Hike the Shivapuri to see 8000'ers  with Trekking Team Group before our Everest  Base Camp trek thinking that it will be great day to acclimatize. The day started with drive to Hindu temple with large reclining goddess in a pond, after exploring this beautiful temple ascended through mostly unspoilt rainforest to Buddhist monastery at the peak, with monks praying and chanting few of us decided to stay there to rest and those who are fit went to the Shivapuri peak.  

Our guide was definitely an expert knowing the path very well and lots of information to share about Nepal. He was a person with sense of humor and we had lots of fun with him. If you have just the day off  and want to be in a nature, this is the trek for you! Thank shree recommending us this great hike!

PS: We did this trek in May, it was very sunny, remember to get some sunscreen.
