Sivhapuri Nagarkot Trek

Shivapuri National Park is located on the northern fringes of Kathmandu and is named after the Shivapuri peak (2,732m). It has been designated a national park since 2002. The protected area extends through 61 sq miles and 3 districts, so as to help sustain the natural landscape and all the wildlife that occupies it. In recent years many rare species of animals have been facing utter extinction due to rapid urban development and poaching but luckily tourism has given our country the support to guard and protect these areas. Tigers, elephants, rhinos, leopards, pandas, wolves, lynx, deer, bears, cranes, antelopes, monkeys and the list goes on and on for all the endangered species to be found through the foothills of Shivapuri. The area has the most well known water catchment area in Nepal, providing thousands of gallons of fresh spring water to the Kathmandu Valley and extending from sub tropical to temperate climate zones. The most beautiful thing about trekking in Shivapuri is standing upon the highest hills in the valley, looking down at the cityscape in the midst of thriving jungle with the sprawling mountains in the not so far distance. Sentiments differ, but mostly, it is regarded as something like perfect harmony - the city representing all the expectations of our busy lives far away, the nature giving us a taste of what we are always seeking and the mountains reflecting all the dreams and goals we hope to one day share with the world.
