A hike through the Shivapuri Forest to the Nagi Gompa nunnery, where we enjoy the humble lunch prepared by the Nuns.
The Shivapuri Forests in the northern side of Kathmandu are one of the closest National Parks from an international airport in the world. Its pristine forests houses the famous Nagi Gompa Nunnery, which offers a peaceful environment combined with fantastic views of the Kathmandu Valley.

Entrance Fees to the National Park
Lunch with Nuns
Make this trip into an overnighter by staying at the incredibly well done Shivapuri Heights Cottage. You could also just add a coffee in the afternoon post hike out here and come back after a sundowner with a view of the city.
Convert this hike into a longer hike but ending it at Sundarijal or by going to the Shivapuri Peak. This will then take a better part of the whole day!
WHAT TO CARRY:
Think mainly protection from
Dehydration - hence you will need water
Sun - hence you need suncream, a sunhat and sunglasses
Wind - a light jacket
Cold - depends on the time of year so a heavier jacket
Rain - a rain jacket
The three could be the same of course!
