Shivapuri is situated at an altitude of the 2563m north of Kathmandu is second highest hill around Kathmandu valley, after the famous Phulchowki hill. In this hill is located the Bagdwar, source of Holy River Bagmati and is the biggest water supply to the Kathmandu valleys increasing the population. We drive for about 45 minutes to Budhanilkantha Temple, one of the temples with the biggest statue of Lord Vishnu sleeping in the ocean bed which lies 8 km north of Kathmandu. From Budhanilkantha we walk through the Shivapuri conservation area. This is the Government protected forest where over 500 species of vegetation are found. We start our Shivapuri & Nagi Gumba day hike from the southern boundary of the area where the army check post is located. Nagi Gumpa situated at an altitude of 1650 m north of Kathmandu and above Budhanilkantha Temple is only Monastery for the Nuns where about 200 Nuns practice Buddhism and foreigners often come there for meditation. It is a steep uphill hike through the narrow and dusty trail for about half an hour and two hours gradual uphill trial to Shivapuri. After lunch and strolling around from sometimes, we take a shortcut downhill trail to Budhanilkantha for about and half hours and drive back to Kathmandu.
