This is an easy trek. Situated towards the north of the Kathmandu Valley, due to its strategic location and convenience, Shivapuri was proclaimed as a watershed area supplying more than a million litres of natural spring water to the city.

This trek gives visitors an opportunity to observe the rich Nepalese culture tradition from the closest quarter and intermingle with the locals.
The narrow mountain paths take you through dense forests and quaint villages. And in the background the magnificent presence of the Himalayan peaks are always there, providing its magnificent panoramic mountains scenery with more than thirty mountains over 6000 meters (19,680ft).and to Kakani.

NOTE: It is recommended that you should arrive in Kathmandu a day earlier before you start your trek (if you do not have a day tour of Kathmandu scheduled). And If you have scheduled Kathmandu day tour you should arrive two days prior from the actual day from trekking.

If you are able to arrive a day earlier, it will be best for you as you will get some time to rest, know about the trekking you are doing, get info about the trekking routes, and you get time to buy trekking equipment if necessary. Adding some extra days beside actual trekking days will help you enjoy your trip to Nepal to the fullest without having to worry about any preparations, any flight delays, and missing international flights.
