The Shivapuri trek is a great way to experience trekking in Nepal while also getting a great introduction to rural Nepali life. It’s a short trek – only 4 days – so it can be worked into almost any itinerary. Shivapuri is the second-highest hill in the Kathmandu Valley, and offers breathtaking views of all the nearby ranges, including the Annapurna range and the Everest range. During this trek, we recommend a sunrise or sunset hike to take in the astounding view of the nearby mountains, as well as some animal or bird watching. The Shivapuri trek can end either at Nagarkot or Dhulikhel, so consider pairing it with a cultural visit to that village after you’ve finished!
