Hiking to Shivapuri Hill

1 Day
  • Sundarijal


  • Budanilkantha


Trip Overview

Shivapuri hill (2,563m) is the second highest hill near Kathmandu valley surrounded by Shivapuri national park. It is an ideal place to refresh our mind and body in an eco-friendly environment, completely out of the hustle and bustle of the city.

Hiking to Shivapuri Hill starts with 20 minutes' drive to Budanilkantha temple. Budanilkantha is a famous Hindu temple dedicated to God Vishnu. The further walking steps bring us to the entrance of national park. Then, enjoy full walk inside the national park as it eventually takes us to Nagi Gompa (2,340m) and then to Shivapuri hill. Nagi Gompa is famous as a quiet mediation and Buddhist center.
