Shivapuri to Shivapuri village hiking

EVERYTHING HAS A BEAUTY BUT NOT EVERYONE SEES IT. CONFUCIUS 

Shivapuri is my all time favorite place to hike /trek around in Kathmandu. It is the second highest hill around Kathmandu with its peak reaching to 2563m.  If you have limited time and would love to go on a short hiking Shivapuri village might be your destination. There is multiple option you can hike for two or three hours or entire day. The choice is yours.

There are several trails to reach Shivapuri. My destination is not to reach a peak but to go to Shivapuri village and relax. Shivapuri is accessible by minibuses. I took minibus from Samakoshi chowk. The minibus headed to north from Samakoshi chowk to Tokha road- Baudeshwor, Jhor – Gurje Bhanjyang and Shivapuri village.  You need to buy tickets at army check post in Gurje Bhanjyang. This money goes for the for the conservation o National park.  The road is black-topped till we reach  Gurje Bhanjyang.  From Gurje Bhanjyang to Shivapuri Village the trail is concrete and fair.

Shivapuri village is just 2km from Gurjaebhangyang. Though it is short hiking trail it is rich in flora and fauna, dense forest, you can hear chirping of birds and greenery all around. After walking for about 2 km I reach Shivapuri village. National Geographic Traveler has featured it in the list of “50 Top Wellness Destinations” around the world.

It you are bored with the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu city and looking for divine place this place is perfect. It is about 25km north of Kathmandu city and at an altitude of 200m above the sea level.  If the weather is clear will see incredible views of majestic Himalayas. The lush greenery and  fresh air  is best for meditation, yoga and pranayams.

My next travel destination…

Few days ago my brother in law visited Kalinchok temple which lies  15 km North-West of Charikot. It is  at an altitude of 3842 meter above the sea level.  This place is incredible, intoxicating and incredible. It is rich in natural beauty, magnificent mountain range, steep hills , valleys, villages etc.  My next travel destination is Kalinchok temple. I will definitely write to you details about this place and temple once I visited it.  Photo credit goes to my brother in law.

Look at the azure blue sky, steep hills, mountain isn’t it breath-taking ?
