Shivapuri Wildlife Reserve

“Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park is a national park located in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. It is the only national park in Nepal that is entirely within the mid-hills. The park is named after Shivapuri Peak, which is the highest peak in the park at an altitude of 2,732 meters (8,963 feet).

The park was established in 1976 as a protected watershed and wildlife reserve. In 2002, it was upgraded to a national park. The park covers an area of 159 square kilometers (61 square miles).

The park is home to a variety of wildlife, including Himalayan black bear, leopard, jungle cat, rhesus monkey, and Himalayan tahr. The park is also home to a number of bird species, including pheasants, thrushes, and eagles.

The park is a popular destination for hiking and trekking. There are a number of trails in the park that offer stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. The park is also a popular destination for bird watching.

The park is important for the protection of the Kathmandu Valley’s water supply. The park’s forests help to prevent soil erosion and sedimentation, which can pollute the water supply. The park also helps to regulate the flow of water in the valley, which is important for irrigation and hydropower.

The park is facing a number of challenges, including deforestation, poaching, and pollution. The park is working to address these challenges through a number of programs, including reforestation, anti-poaching patrols, and environmental education.

Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park is a valuable natural resource that is important for the people of Nepal. The park provides a home for wildlife, protects the water supply, and offers opportunities for recreation and education.
