Nagarjun Forest Reserve

One of the last areas of undisturbed forest in the Kathmandu Valley, this peaceful reserve feels far from the city, though it is only about 4km north of Thamel. The reserve — also known as Rani Ban or Queen’s Forest — is home to deer, pheasants and monkeys. Birdspotters will delight in the fact that Nagarjun and neighbouring Shivapuri National Park have recorded 318 bird species. Walk the footpath to the summit (2,095m) for wide valley views, or come here to climb or mountain bike. There have been security issues here in the past so do not walk alone.
