Early in the morning, you drive from Kathmandu to Muhan Pokhari for about 30 minutes. After passing through the official formalities at the Shivapuri Park entrance gate, you will begin your hike through Shivapuri watershed and wildlife area. The trail goes along the rugged motor-able road through pine and cherry forest up to Nangi Gompa, where a nunnery monastery is located. Beyond the monastery, the trail goes steep uphill through the oak, rhododendron and bamboo forest for another three hours. From here one can enjoy the beauty of snowy Himalayas such as Ganesh Himal, Langtang-Lirung, Dorji etc. You then take a shortcut downhill to Budhanilkantha and drive back to Kathmandu.
