Living here, we get to do a lot of awesome mountain biking and hiking in the park, so if you are keen to get out and explore, let us show you some of the great trails we have found!
Whether it’s stopping over on a longer biking or trekking trip, or using Shivapuri Retreat as your base for great rides and day walks, we can show you the best trails or simply help you plan your route and send you off after a hearty breakfast or lunch, well fuelled for the rest of your trip.
With legendary trails through the Shivapuri National Park like ‘the Scar Route’, ‘the Helipad’ and ‘30 Minutes of Heaven’ this park is a national treasure!
Combined with nature walks or bird/butterfly watching, the park offers amazing day walks. For example, hike up to the Shivapuri peak and enjoy not only the beautiful forest and waterfalls, but incredible views of the Himalayas from the Annapurnas to the Everest region with your picnic lunch at the top. Alternatively, enjoy a leisurely country breakfast in the garden, then take an easy hike down the hill for a delicious French lunch before heading back into town.
Danda Gaon can be either a stopover, or the starting point, of a multi-day trek – we link up with other guest houses a good day or half a day’s walk away making this a great weekend get away. We also link up with the famous Helambu, Langtang and Goasinkund tea-house trekking trails for those with more time to get out and explore Nepal.
