Shivapuri day hike is the best short trek near Kathmandu.

It is as equally scenic and rewarding as any other treks in the Himalayan foothills. The trail is located in the north of the Kathmandu valley which follows the ridge through Tamang villages into the subtropical forest of Shivapuri national park.

You will be driven to the Shivapuri National park entrance, passing through the Budhanilkantha temple on the way. You are required to acquire the entrance permit or tickets. The trail climbs past monastery through the forest to Bagdwar with shrines and hermitages. You will then hike for another 40 minutes to reach the Shivapuri hilltop with the panoramic view of Ganesh Himal, Jugal Himal, and Manaslu Range. It requires 8 whole hours to complete Shivapuri hiking.

Beautiful country, great people, an amazing experience!

Spent about a month in Nepal last year with San trekking. It was such a beautiful experience. Trekking in Pokhara in the Annapurna region and mountain flight was just out of this world. Their team took great care of us. Beautiful country, great people, an amazing experience!
