Shivapuri National Park Hiking


Shivapuri National Park Hiking

Shivapuri National Park Hiking is Nepal's best day trip, located northwest of Kathmandu. Shivapuri National Park is Nepal's ninth national park, to be recognized in 2002 AD. It comprises four districts - Kathmandu, Nuwakot, Sindupalchock and Dhading and adjoins 23 VDC. The name Nagarjun was taken from the name of the Buddhist saint Nagarjuna who came into the Nagarjun forest, spent many years meditating and got enlightened. The Nepal government protected this forest and named it Nagarjun forest reserve. The forest was later merged as part of Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park. Many different species are present in the national park, including wild boar, cat tiger, fox, and monkey, while the thick forest is renowned for the flora. Indeed, several different varieties of subtropical vegetation can be found here, including some herbal plant of great ayurvedic value. Shivapuri National Park Hiking is a three hours hike to the Nagarjuna hill, also called the historical Jamacho peak. The hike goes slightly uphill to the top where a Jamacho Gumba monastery is situated. On the walk, we passed through some caves, shrines and thick forest. On a clear day, you can see Mt. Annapurna ( m), Manaslu (8463 m), Ganesh Himal (7111 m), Langtang (7,246m) and Kathmandu valley. The Shivapuri National Park Hiking is one of the easiest hikes near Kathmandu and this can be taken by any physical fitness user.
