Trip Planner: Asia / Nepal / Central Region / Bagmati Zone / Kathmandu Valley / Kathmandu / Nagarjun Forest Reserve
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.

Nagarjun Forest Reserve Reviews
located next to the city. good breakaway place. lived in here for a year. loved the place. has much cool trekking and hiking trail and those are very safe with a nice view. more »
I went there early one morning. It is supposed to open at 7am, but the staff are too lazy to get to work on time. Unfreiendly army guards. The forest road are dark and we saw little bird life. more »
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.
Few kilometres away from the busy streets of Kathmandu, is the silent, peaceful lush green jungles of Nagarjun. 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.
