The Shivapuri Hike starts from Panimuhan at the entry point of Shivapuri National Park. The trail runs inside the dense forest of Shivapuri Nagarjuna National Park. The hike includes gentle elevation up to Nagi Gumpa. Nagi Gumpa is one of the major attractions of this day tour. A 3-hour uphill walk from Nagi Gumba takes you to the Baghdwar. Baghdwar is a beautiful water spring where the Bagmati Rivers starts. The trail is the best hiking trail for a nature walk and bird watching enthusiast. On a clear day, one might observe the spectacular panorama of the snow-capped Himalayas below the northern and eastern horizon.

At the top of the Shivapuri hill, there is a white statue of legendary Shivapuri Baba. From the top, the trail connects another ridge of the hill to descend down. Comparatively, the descending trail is steeper and shorter. The trail ends at Paanimuhan to complete the encircling route of the Shivapuri hill day tour.
