It is 15 kilometers hike leading into the forest reserve at Shivapuri National Park. Register at the park gate before spending 2.5-3 hours strolling through the gorgeous woods, heading to the Buddhist monastery at Nagi Gompa. Nagi Gumba (NANG-KYI) is a monastery, which is situated in Shivpuri (one of the hills surrounding Kathmandu). Your walk gradually becomes steeper as you proceed uphill for around 1 mile to arrive at the Monastery. As you climb up, you will enjoy the beautiful sights of Kathmandu Valley. During the hike, you will also have a great opportunity for bird watching and numbers of the waterfall. You may even be able to distant mountains on the northern side of Nepal.
Nagi Gumba (NANG-KYI) is exclusively run by Nuns and is the best place to view the Kathmandu Valley. In Gagi Gumba, you can take enough time for observing the routine of the nuns in the Monastery, enjoy the enchanting views and learn a bit about Buddhism. You will spend enough time in Nagi Gumba then get ready for the return journey to Kathmandu through the same way or exit from another corner of the National Park, Sundarijal.
