Nagarjuna Day Hike is one of the popular day hikes around Kathmandu. Nagarjun National Park lies in the northwest part of Kathmandu, a protected region that offers hiking, and the Royal Nagarjuna Palace lies here.

The Nagarjuna day hike trail is manageable for hikers of all fitness levels because it is only a short 3-4-hour walk. There are several rest areas for hikers to pause and enjoy the scenery along the well-marked track. Once we started walking, we traversed through deep woodlands populated with oak, bamboo, rhododendron, pine, and several common floras.

If the weather is in a good mood, then you will witness the stunning view of Kathmandu. Also, you will be able to enjoy the breathtaking views of Langtang, Manaslu, Annapurna, and the Everest range.

This Nagarjuna Hill has a religious significance too. There is a Buddhist monastery with a statue of Lord Buddha and Arya Nagarjuna. If you are on a short trip and not planning to go for a long trek like Everest Base Camp Trek, Annapurna Circuit Trek, etc., then this one-day hike to Nagarjuna is the perfect day hike around Kathmandu to enjoy.
