Nagarjun Forest Reserve provides a protected home for monkeys, deer, and pheasants. The scenic woodland remains one of the last unspoiled spots in Katmandu Valley, serving as a popular picnic spot for the locals. Female visitors are forbidden from exploring on their own, a decision made after two foreign tourists died here in 2005.

  • Awesome park with amazing views. Hire a mountain bike and cycle up as far as you can. Bring water with you and a spare tube in case of punctures, the trail is demanding for novices like we are. But we really enjoyed the experience.

Considering you have a thing for hikes and trekking, you will absolutely love the short hike (about 5kms), which takes anywhere between 2-3.5 hrs depending on how fit you are 😉. If you want a day off from the hustles and bustles of the city, and you have a good group of friends, Nagarjun hike definitely should be on your list.
