They are absolutely shameless! I get it that tourist should pay more, and a price of 1000 npr (per day) for foreigners is okay for the entrance. But they won't let you in the park without a guide for a hiking trip of 6 hours. So they said we have to pay 5500 npr (2 persons, 2×1000 npr entry and 3500 npr for a guide; last offer was 3750 npr) for a little hike of only 6 hours. By the way: Nepalis are paying only for the entrance and they don't even need a guide. For Langtang you only pay 3000 npr for 15 days and you don't need a guide. I'm really sure that they are trying to scam tourist. Sad to watch and impressive how confident they are while talking such a bullsh/t.

I visited this park with a group of friend for picnic (just before getting inside the park) followed by short hiking. It is a dense, lush green and well preserved national park which is protected for watershed and wildlife reserve. Well secured by the Nepal Army and people have to pay an entrance fees to get inside. There are some resorts, restaurants etc. closed to park area that provides a great opportunity to visitors to enjoy fully. A must to visit place and enjoy hiking, forest fun, great flora and fauna and if lucky enough chances to some animals as well.

I arranged to go there with a company I used two years ago so I had my guide. It was only to make my life easier having one day. You can do it on your own - bus trips take longer. It costs 1050 for a foreigner to enter the park as you need a local guide. The guide I spoke with was smart - he happily took the 1000 rupee fee but said that as I have my guide he does not have to go. Fair enough - less noise on the way up. They say that the hike to Nagi Gompa - Buddhist nunnery takes 2.5h - maybe if you are bird watching as it took us 45 mins - it's only 4km and it's moderately up. As the local guide wanted probably to make more money that day, we were free to hike to the peak, which apparently costs 3000 and not 1000 rupees with a local guide. Just be aware. The entire hike took good 5h - going up from the nunnery side its beautiful, we decided to go down the other side and it was a hit and miss - views were not that good and it's basically hundreds and hundreds of steps - I hate hiking on stairs and my knees paid for this. Just know that there are two ways up to the peak if you want to start and finish in the same place - the one via Nagi Gompa offers beautiful views, the other one (taking left after the entrance to the park) is steeper with unnecessary steps. Have fun - we saw the Langtang Mountain Range and it made my day.

The setting of the lodge is the National Park.We went on several treks to see wildlife.There are rhinos,elephants and tons of birds set in their natural habitat.It was amazing to see them in the wild.We had a naturalist on our treks to give us information.It is well worth seeing.

Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park offers great day hike and a nice way to shake off the jet lag before heading to base camp or the higher mountains. The forests is beautiful and we saw lots of birds including the Kalij Pheasant. We also saw and heard a bird the locals refer to as the laughing bird but were unable to identify. The stupa at the top was charming. A peaceful place for a lunch.

As a foreigner I think this park isn't really worth charging for. They insist a foreigner also hire a local guide - why? Perfectly OK to walk/hike in and not get lost. Should be optional to have a guide - and lower the prices too. It's not exactly stunning scenery or well maintained!
