Shivapuri Trekking is also known as Shivapuri Nagarkot trek and Shivapuri Nagarkot hike. Shivapuri Trekking is a short package of mere 8 days which begins from Budhanilkantha and ends in Nagarkot which is as popular for sunrise view as for having panoramic views of Everest and other snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas in eastern Nepal.

When to embark on Shivapuri Trekking, you will have a chance to experience the serene aura of Budhanilkantha Temple where lies the huge idol of Lord Vishnu (The Protector) in a lake in sleeping position. On a clear day, you will get stunning views of Kathmandu Valley from the north side while Nagarkot serves as the view point for enjoying the breathtaking view of the Annapurna range, Manaslu mountain range, Ganesh Himal range, Langtang Himal, Lakpa Mountain, Melung Tse Himal, Gauri Shankar Himal, Everest and Lhotse Himal.

This trek lets you pass through several Tamang villages that exist at the edge of valley which will give you the insight into lifestyle, culture and religion of the ethnic community of Tamang without having to travel far from the capital city.
The route for Shivapuri Trekking initiates from Budanilkantha and passes through Chisapani and Nagarkot before returning back to Kathmandu.

    Kathmandu Valley includes several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including Pashupatinath (famous Hindu temple and cremation ground) Boudhanath (massive Buddhist stupa). We can also visit Swyambhunath, also known as Monkey Temple, which was built roughly 2000 years ago.  Finally, we can visit Patan, city of fine arts. In the afternoon, you will be meeting with your trekking guide and will check all the necessary things. Overnight stay at the hotel.

      After breakfast, a short drive will take us to Budhanilkantha which is the beginning point for Shivapuri Trek. We will walk through the woods and along the ridge enjoying the scenic views of Annapurna, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Langtang and Jugal Himalaya on the way. Eventually, we will arrive to the flat and grassy land where we will stay for the night.

        It is recommended wake up early in the morning to watch the sunrise over the mountains. After having breakfast at around 7am, we begin our trek to Chisapani (2115m). We will walk along the ridge between the Shivapuri watershed forests for about 4hrs to ultimately reach Chisapani where we will stay overnight.

          After taking our breakfast, we walk through a Tamang village and continue through the forest. We walk for a few more hours through beautiful landscapes to arrive in Nagarkot. Nagarkot offers an excellent view of the sunset, as well as the sunrise the following morning. We can even have a splendid view of Mount Everest on a clear day. Overnight at Nagarkot.
