Shivapuri Peak Hiking: 1 Day
Shivapuri Peak Hiking is a short trek from Kathmandu. Shivapuri stands at 2563m, and is the highest hill near the Kathmandu Valley. The Shivapuri Hill Trek is located in the Shivapuri National Park.
Shivapuri NP is located 13km from Kathmandu and is one of the best 1 day short hikes near Kathmandu. The area was upgraded to National Park status in 2002 to protect the valley’s main water source, as well as 177 species of birds and numerous rare orchids found in the park. This is one of the last areas of primary woodland left in the valley, and the forest is alive with monkeys, and other wildlife such as leopards and bears.
