Begin your tour after meeting your guide in the lobby of your Kathmandu hotel at 7:30am. Move out by private car or local bus and make the 20-minute journey to the Budhanikantha Temple. Before heading out on your trek, break for tea and take time to fill up your water bottles. Drive another 5-10 minutes to the entrance of Shivapuri National Park. There, you will pay the conservation fees and finally start the hike. Observe the flora and fauna as you leisurely walk through the preserved park.
By 11:30am, you are projected to reach the top of Shivapuri and attain expansive panoramic views of the mountains to the north. Break for lunch and enjoy your packed meal for approximately an hour. Once you have finished your meal, begin your descent back to the base of the park via Tokha Park. Board the awaiting vehicle when you get to the bottom to begin your journey back to the hotel. Arrive at your accommodations at approximately 2:00pm.
