Shivapuri Nagarkot Trek

Special Things to see touring in Kathmandu
03 days


Shivapuri Nagarkot Trek is one of the popular and short treks around the Kathmandu valley which is located in the country’s middle hill on the northern fringe of the Kathmandu valley. This trekking route offers us the entire thing that a trekker wants while making a journey at Nepal. Sunrise and sunset views are perfect from this entire hill. The spring offers early flowering rhododendron through the autumn and winter, and wonderful mountain views. Even though being so close, yet it provides a visitor a glimpse of the remoteness and the grandeur of the village found in Nepal. It is renowned for watershed and wildlife which is the second highest hill that surrounds the valley. While hiking, we enjoy an excellent view of the Kathmandu valley, view of the Annapurna ranges, and Langtang Himal. Although it is so near to Kathmandu a fast-growing modern city which takes you after an hour drive so near to nature immediately exposing a typical rural Nepal with the magnificent view of the different ranges. Trekking in this route takes you through typical Nepalese countryside and exposes you to the various ethnic groups of Nepal.
