Passing through the dense forest of Shivapuri National Park and Tamang villages mixed with culture and nature, we will be able to encounter different flora and fauna and also marijuana plantations that exist just close to the capital city of Nepal.
The trail is easy as compare to another short trek of Nepal, but is diverse in terms of the view of nature and different ethnic settlement. The trail passes through Shivapuri National Park of Nepal, which is one of the very famous watershed areas and the main resources of drinking water supply to Kathmandu valley. The park lies between the temperate and subtropical climatic zone, rich in flora and fauna.
Shivapuri National Park is a protected area, so different army checkpoints do exist to maintain its conservation project. It is also one of the religious heritage areas for both Hindu and Buddhist followers, as different hermitages for different periods of time came here to meditate and among them ‘SHIVAPURI BABA’ is one of them. Above all this conservation area is the source of the Bagmati and Bisnumati rivers of Nepal, a highly sacred river.
Furthermore, different subtropical hardwood, pine, oak, rhododendron, etc are grown and the park is blessed with an abundance of different species of butterflies and birds, so Shivapuri is also a popular destination for Bird Watching and in terms of wildlife sloth bear, jungle cat, monkeys, leopards, etc can be seen. So to protect all this, army checkpoint keeps their eyes with visitors’ records.
