Thanks to Kristian Soltesz from Sweden for helping you all out with a report from his trip to the Everest Region of Nepal in the hope that it will make it easier for preparing your own trip.

A fabulous trail running route in the Shivapuri national park in the Kathmandu Valley with lush forest trails, orchids, wildlife, a pure Bagmati river, holy men and an optional 2700m peak.
We set out from Gokarna temple at 6:35: Upendra, Rekha, Peter, John and I (Roger). The plan was to try and do Shivapuri but add some trails we didn’t know yet. The first bit from Gokarna through the pine forest hill – now being turned into a picknick area with an entrance fee (huge wall […]

It’s got hills, trails, forests, culture and probably the only ultra race where you get a tikka on your forehead at 50 km and a […]
A great and not too difficult run very close to Kathmandu. You can find an earlier post about this he with a different decent: https://trailrunningnepal.org/2010/05/jamacho-in-the-kathmandu-valley/ The hard bit is done upfront, and that is giving the price of a beer just to walk in the gate.
