Kathmandu Shivapuri Chisapani Hiking is one of the most popular day hiking around Kathmandu valley.  Kathmandu Shivapuri Chisapani Hiking takes you so near to nature immediately exposing a typical rural Nepal with a magnificent view of different Himalayan range. The trek route passes through Shivapuri National Park which is home for many species of birds, animals, flora and fauna. A great array of butterflies, bird species, rare animals whose life is under threat such as jungle cat, sloth bear, leopard, monkeys etc. are found in the park. The trek to Shivapuri provides wonderful and amazing views of Kathmandu Valley from the peak of Shivapuri edge. The Park is sandwiched between the temperate and subtropical climate area which is also rich in wild lives and plants with oak, pine and rhododendron as well as many varieties of orchids and mushrooms. On the way we can explore typical Nepali culture of the people populating that area.

The trail continues up the hill through dense forest and natural eye catching landscape. We pass through many small settlements of Gurung and Tamang People and explore their cultural lifestyle. Passing through the village of Mulkharka we descend down the trail to reach Chisapani (2300m). After a night stay at Chisapani, we trek down through another side of Shivapuri National Park to Budanilkantha. Then we drive back to Kathmandu.
