Hiking in Nepal

Nagi Gompa-Gokarna Day Hike

Begin day hike to Nagi or  Nangki Gumba from Kathmandu as early morning as possible. Our vehicle will transport you to Budanilakantha, a sacred Hindu religious place, located in the north of Kathmandu Valley. This place is very popular for Lord Vishnu temple. Here you will see a 5 meter sleeping Lord Vishnu in the middle of a small pond symbolizing the cosmic ocean being protected by  the thousand- headed snake .It is believed that sculpture  of sleeping  Lord Vishnu is over 1,000 years old.  After a brief stop at Budanilakantha we slowly climb up the hill through the forest enjoying a fantastic view of the whole Kathmandu Valley from the hilltop of Shivapuri National Park and Himalayan Mountain ranges to the north .On the way one can encounter with various species of birds, local villagers and wild flora and  fauna in the Park. This park is strewn with several waterfalls and typical Nepalese settlements. The Shivapuri Park is famous for bird watching tours, sighting wildlife and wild fauna in its natural habitat. After 3 hours steep climb you will reach the national park gate and then Naagi Gumba, a popular Buddhist Monastery. The distance is  3 kilometers from Shivapuri National Park gate  to Naagi Gumba. After visiting Naagi Gumba we walk towards Baghdwar- the originating source of Bagmati river. We keep treading on the trail through the pine forest hill  until we reach Gokarna, a small village which lies east of Kathmandu. Due to its laid-back, unspoiled and rustic nature many hikers visit Gokarna.
