    Shivapuri Day Hiking 1 days

    Shivapuri Day Hiking takes you to pristine surrounding with pleasant walks towards the north of Kathmandu valley rim.  The normal hiking duration is 5-6 hours, with enjoyable moments and memories. You can visit rural farm villages, monasteries, and temples on this wonderful Shivapuri day hike.

    While in Kathmandu before and after your major tour and activities, many plans to explore city life's backside. In that case, Shivapuri Day Hiking will be an ideal choice to lead you to fresh mountain air and a serene environment. It takes you through the green forested areas with a wide panorama of Nepal Central Himalaya, including Manaslu-Ganesh-Langtang with the Jugal Himalaya range of peaks.

    A short drive leads you toward the starting point of the trek, and then, we enter the Shivapuri National Park. The park is enriched with exotic bird life and some wild animals. On their good time, they are often seen on walks, as the route leads to a long climb past a Buddhist monastery. Then after, we walk forward through lovely alpine woodland to reach the scenic spot of Shivapuri Hill.

    Best Seasons:

    Nearly all months of the year except the monsoon. That means wet months from mid-June to mid-September.

    March to May is the best time for clear views till the afternoon when wildflowers bloom with fantastic views of mountains. The day will be pleasant with cooler morning and nighttime.

    Another best time for a hike to Shivapuri is October to December for clear views of peaks.  Short sunlight days can be cold in the morning and night time. But it depends upon the altitude and overnight stop.
