Shivapuri National Park day hike offers 6 hours of wonderful hiking and is located Shivapuri hill at the north end of the Kathmandu valley. To go to Shivapuri we will drive 10 km to Budhanilkantha, locally known as Narayanthan (sleeping Vishnu). The Budhanilkantha statue is the best example of religious syncretism in Nepal. This statue combines two sects of Hinduism, Vaisnavism, and Shaivism; together combined with Buddhism.

After visiting the temple at the site of this sacred statue, we will start our hike. Our trail will meander through a lush forest of greenery. This is a conservation area that protects more than 500 animal species. The trail is lined by many plant species, including Rhododendron, Blue Pine, Fir, Magnolia and Oak Trees which are home to many exotic birds. The high point of this hike will take us to an altitude of 2,730m/8,957 ft.

The Southern Region of Shivapuri National Park is the location of the Nainki Gomba Buddhist Monastery and is under the watch of a Nepalese Army checkpoint at an altitude of 2,330m/7,640ft. This monastery is famous for Nuns practice in Buddhism, and for foreigners practicing meditation. About 2 hours above the Gomba travelers will find Bagdwar. Bagdwar is the source of the holy Bagmati River, which flows by the famous holy Hindu Temple Pashupathinath (Lord Shiva).

Continuing 30 minutes up to the peak we will look upon the statue of Shivapuri Baba, well known Sadhu and the famous figure of high intellect. While returning we will view another source of the holy river Bishnu Mati. This river and the Bishnu Mati River are the true lifelines of the Kathmandu valley, the heart of Bishnumati and Bagmati civilization. This water is fresh and clean and believed to be holy. After a refreshing break at this site, we will continue our descent to the starting point and board the transport shuttle provided by Mountain Miracles staff members.
