Shivapuri Hill is located at an altitude of the 2563 m, north of Kathmandu and is the second highest hill surrounding the valley, after famous hill - Phulchowki.

In this hill is a place called Bagdwar, the main source of holy Bagmati river, and is also the biggest water supply to Kathmandu valley.

On your day hike to shivapuri, first 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 protected forest where over 500 species of plants are found. We start our Shivapuri Nagi Gumba Day hike from the southern boundary of the area from the army check post.

Nagi Gumba is at an altitude of 1650 m above the Budhanilkantha Temple and is the only monastery for nuns who 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 half an hour and finally drive back to Kathmandu.
