This holy and sacred hill is located in the North West part of Kathmandu valley. This forest was preserved by Nepali government and called Nagarjun forest reserve. Later the forest was combined as part of Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park. Many different animals including wild boar, cat tiger, fox, and monkey are found inside whereas the dense forest is famous for the flora. And also, many different kinds of subtropical floras including some herbal plant having great ayurvedic value can be found here.
