Shivapuri hiking is one of the most exciting hikes around Kathmandu. Nepal, Shivapuri Village maintains the true spirit of the Nepalese village experience in its midst; yet it provides a visitor with a glimpse of the remoteness and the grandeur apart from the hospitality and lies in the buffer zone of the Shivapuri National Park, which is one of the few National Parks situated in any capital around the globe. Shivapuri Village offers various activities to keep oneself busy during their stay be it in the form of Nature Treks and Hikes, Ethnic Village Tours, Bird Watching, Photography, or just simply relaxing in leisure.
