A Day hike from Kathmandu to Bagdwara is one of the best things to do in Kathmandu offering jaw dropping panaromic view of Himalayas. This is a refreshinggentle hike in the healthy lush damp green forest taking you through Nagi Gompa, Budhanilkantha, Shivapuri and bagdwara who are in Kathmandu for a day or 2. This forest houses 19 species of wildlife like Himalayan black bear, leopard, barking deer, wild boar, wild cat and monkeys along with 177 species of birds : Bird watchers paradise.
This is like the Kingdom of Clouds! Staying there for a sec to turn the beautiful scenery into unforgettable pictures is inspring.

Then we proceed through Shivapuri national park on a walking trail very old and being used by Nepalese Army for national park patrolling. A dense forest and lust of nature will make your tiredness go away. Reaching at the top of hill you will see natural beauty of surroundings and Bagdwara, starting point of Holi river Bagmati.

    We were friends booked this activity directly at Extollo office in Kathmandu and enjoyed our long awaited Hike to Bagdwara. The trail was so much pleasing and appealing for nature lovers willing to enjoy a day hike from Kathmandu. Lush green forest, sound of birds along the way and the scenic view of mountain range and Kathmandu valley was awesome. We loved our walk of 5 hours and appreciate the service arrangements done by Extollo Adventures. Wonderful and highly recommended.
