Shivapuri Hill is situated at an altitude of the 2563 m north of Kathmandu and is the second highest hill surrounding Kathmandu valley, after the famous hill - Phulchowki. In this hill is located Bagdwar, the main source of holy Bagmati river, and is also the biggest water supply to the Kathmandu valley.

We drive for about 45 minutes to Budhanilkantha Temple, 8 km north of Kathmandu, where lies the biggest statue of Lord Vishnu, representing sleeping in the ocean bed.

From Budhanilkantha, our day hike officially begins through the Shivapuri Conservation Area. The area is Government protected forest where over 500 species of vegetation are found. We start ourShivapuri Nagi Gumba Day hike from the southern boundary of the area where the army check post is located.

Nagi Gumba is situated at an altitude of 1650 m above the Budhanilkantha Temple and is the only monastery for Nuns where about 200 of them practice Buddhism. The gumba is located north of Kathmandu. This place gets lots of visitors - locals as well as foreigners for practicing meditation.

Our hike is steep uphill through the narrow and dusty trail for about half an hour and two hours gradual uphill trial to Shivapuri. Besides an abundance of dense woods and vegetation, we can also observe varieties of birds on our hiking trail.

After lunch and strolling around from sometime, we take a shortcut downhill trail to Budhanilkantha for about and half hours and finally drive back to Kathmandu.
