Trekking, Hiking and Exploring Around Prakriti

The Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park itself is a playground for adventures and naturists alike from the most part untouched by fantastic short treks and hikes that allow you to set a slower pace and truly immerse yourself in the rich culture and lifestyle of village life.  Amble along ample walking trails of the Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park or let the explorer in you take you to Mainchur, Okhreni, Kune, Chisapani or Bagdwar, or even “Conquer” the Shivapuri Peak.  The area immediately around Prakriti itself offers splendid opportunities for short and less strenuous exploratory options. One can take a leisurely walk around the serene Dhhap Lake (wetland), keeping a discreet eye out for birds and wild animals that inhabit the area or alternatively, you can take a short hike to the local trout farm or the tea estate, or even visit the famous cheese factory nearby. Come in spring design and walk your own trail through dense, full bloom Rhododendron forests ablaze in all their glory. Should you want to indulge in cultural, walk over to Sankhu or Bajrayogini passing en route through Newari, Gurung , Tamang Brahmin or Cheetri villages.

Also, being located on the crossroads of the famous hiking route network that crisscrosses the outskirts of the Kathmandu Valley such as the ones to Kakani, Gurju Bhanjyang, Baghdwar, Chisapani, Sundarijal, Sankhu, Nagarkot and Dhulikhel, the resort can be used as a convenient base for hiking excursions to these places. These make up for perfect short treks for those who do not have sufficient time to venture further into the Himalayas and can be undertaken with simple preparation.

Prakriti is a convenient gateway for invigorating treks to the Langtang National Park, Gosainkunda and the Helambu region. In this regard, the resort is an ideal first-night stopover, which will help you get acclimatized before you reach the higher altitudes of Langtang.
