After getting our bags packed with lunch for the day and breakfast at the hotel, we leave for Budhanilkantha — the largest and most beautiful carved stone statue, located 10 kilometers from Kathmandu at the base of Shivapuri Hill. It is a 5 meters long statue of Hindu god Vishnu lying submerged in water and reclining in the coils of the Shesha Naga, a mythical serpent.
Next, a short walk ahead to Pani Muhan, a nearby water source, and we reach the entrance gate of the Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park. The 13.5 km hiking kicks off from there.
Shivapuri NP, the nearest from Kathmandu, stands as a good hiking destination for a day. The flora and fauna that exist all over the route and the height of the place from where Kathmandu can be seen through the bird’s eye just mesmerize the effort. Spread over the summit of 2730m, many species of plants including the Rhododendron, Oaks, and Pine trees and animals like Black Panther, Common Leopard, Rhesus Monkeys, reside within the area. There is a monastery at the top of the park, a spot from where a panoramic view of Kathmandu valley, Baghdwar, the site of origin of Bagmati River, we can see all the Kathmandu valley can be seen. The hike is one of the short and sweet comfortable for a day’s trip.
The hiking then descends to Sundarijal. The water at Sundarijal, a drinking water supply resource for Kathmandu, is sure to make you feel an awesome experience. Finally, we return to the hotel by taxi.
