Overview of Shivapuri Day Hike

One of the best ways to hang out near Kathmandu city is Shivapuri day hike. This hiking route lies in the Shivapuri National Park and guides you to the rich wilderness and the best reward of nature. It is a paradise for nature lovers and those who have keen interests in bird watching, where several bird species are found. It is located in the northern part of Kathmandu. This hiking trip offers the fabulous Himalayan range of Dorje Lhakpa and Langtang.

The Shivapuri day hike begins from Kathmandu. On the way, you can explore a Hindu temple and enter the Shivapuri Nagarjun national park. It is out of the noise and pollution and gives only virtual scenes. It is a shelter of various flora and fauna. According to the record of the National Park, there are 129 mushroom species, 150 butterfly species, 177 bird species, and 19 mammal species. The wild animals include the Himalayan black bear, leopard, wild boar, wild cat, and rhesus monkey. Several bird species are found here, including the Turdus bulbous.

The lush forest in this National Park includes Oak, Pine, Rhododendron, and other sub-tropical plants. During the hiking in Shivapuri, you can reach the Nangi monastery, which is a sacred monastery of Buddhists’. Although there is a motorable road, hiking is so much exciting.
