  • An off road motorbiking to Chispani through the beautiful forest of Shivapuri offers great views of Langtang mountain range.  more »
  • Now get lost. That should go to the nun monastery and eventually went up near the top. Trying to take a shortcut and got lost. You'd better quit the shortcut.

  • This park has hiking, sport climbing, and more! The entry fees differ by activity and are more expensive for foreign visitors. The bolted climbs are of decent quality. Some anchors are accessible by a short hike if you'd like to set up a toprope without leading the climb.
  • I love Shivapuri Hike. Shivapuri National Park offer many days hikes and many choices of starting and ending point. Whether you go Nagarjun Hill area, or start from Budhanilkantha, all provide great views. You could do one day to 3 days or even continued to Helambhu Area or further to Langtang National Park. If you start from Sundarijal, then of course you could stay on night in Chisopani and other day can go back to Kathmandu or Nagarkot before you drive back to home. It provide great views of both mountain and nature.
  • A good place for leisure crosscountry cycling and scenery.
  • Wonderful views, amazing climate, n fresh environment it is popular for everything. Mainly I visit this place with my friends for hiking.....
  • Looking for some quiet winding time? Here's one of the places in Kathmandu to do that. Well conserved and unpolluted. A place to visit for every hiking lovers.
