Lying within the Shivapuri National Park, north of the valley is Shivpuri at 2,760m. From here, fine views can be had of Ganesh Himal, Himalchuli, Manaslu and Langtang range. The entire hill is thickly forested and enjoys a rich flora and fauna. The four-hour hike begins at Budanilkanta. Camp overnight (remember to carry water) and rise early to catch the sunrise. On the way back, climb down to Baghdwar, source of the holy Bagmati, and stop for lunch at Nagi Gompa, after which Budanilkanta is only a short walk back. Shivapuri is known for its butterflies.

The museum faces Durbar Square and is housed in a beautifully restored and renovated former Malla residential palace. The collection spans much of Nepal’s cultural history, primarily exhibiting exquisite sculptures of Hindu and Buddhist deities, typical of Patan’s tradition in craftsmanship.
