Nagarjun Day hiking is suitable to spend one full day hiking inside the dense forest. It gives the stunning view of the Himalayas, Kathmandu valley, and other green hills surroundings. Reaching at Nagarjun Hill (2900 meters) is thought hiking within a single day. Is it about 7 hours hiking seriously ups when going and serious down when coming back.

This park covers a very large area and you have to go through it for trekking to Everest Base Camp. It is a very scenic park and very varied terrain.

The park is very nice but not more than this. Pay attention that in addition to 560 Rupies entrance fee per person, you also have to hire a guide for *800* Rupies! Apparently it's a law, and the text of the law hangs on the window of the ticket office. The guide doesn't really GUIDE, he's more sort of accompanyment,... More

Did an organized two day hike in the spring. Beautiful nature and stunning views, not too physically demanding, and only 40 minutes from Kathmandu. Good food and beer along the way and included one night in a village guest house. Great alternative to money, time, and gear required for a big trek.

lots of hiking trails inside the national park and my favourite is the trekking from sundarijal to chisapani. We stayed overnight at chisapani and then from chisapani to nagarkot. A very relaxing green escape.

We just came back from this hike. You do not need to pre-book a tour which seems to cost more than $60 USD per person. For two people traveling from Thamel, we paid 1600 rupees total round trip (someone below mentioned a taxi costing $50 to get there and that is a shame)-it shouldn't cost any more than $8 USD...

Three of us went to Shivapuri national park for hiking last week. It was great place with forest view, waterfall and some wild animals.

The park itself is nice - lush, peaceful, a few good spots for views of the valley, and the landmarks mentioned in other reviews. However, foreigners are now required to hire a "licensed guide" to enter, "for safety reasons," in addition to the already higher admittance fee that foreigners pay. The guides at the gate clamor for your business and... More
