Kakani-Shivapuri- Chisopani-Nagarkot- Dhulikhel- Namobuddha Trek

Kakani / Shivapuri and Nagarkot Village trek is one of the finest trekking routes around Kathmandu valley. The trek is named after the Shivapuri National Park, which is regarded as the nearest National Park from the International Airport. It is just 25 km from the capital, Kathmandu. Even though being so close yet it provides a visitor a sight of the remoteness and the grandeur of the villages found in Nepal.

This trek offers various activities to keep oneself busy during the stay be it in the form of Nature Treks and Hikes, Ethnic Village Tours, Bird Watching, Photography or just a simple relaxing leisure. This is a fantastic hiking tour from Kathmandu. It offers a rich insight into the lives, history, culture and religion of its inhabitants. Shivapuri hill (2729m) is the highest point of this trek. From the top of Shivapuri, one can have a panoramic view of the western mountains like Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Ganesh Himal Range, Mt. Langtang Range, Mt. Dorje Lakpa Mt. Shishapangma, Mt.
