Shivapuri is is a protected zone situated on the northern rim of the Kathmandu valley, the streams that eminate from here provide fresh drinking water for a major portion of the valleys inhabitants.

Much of the trek is through undisturbed thick oak forest, If you are lucky you may come accross spotted dear, monkeys and jackals on the trail.

The hill at Nagarjun overlooks the famous Stupa of Swyambhuntah, known to many as monkey temple. The hilltop temple is thought to be the meditation place of the Buddhist Sage Nagarjun who visited the area while the Kathmandu valley was still a huge lake, there are number of meditation caves still to be seen on the hillside. The trail starts about one kilometer from Balaju on the road to Trisuli. Prepare to spend five to six hours walking, take your own lunch and drinks
