Dhulikhel Day Hike

The Dhulikhel day hike is one of the most beautiful day hikes within the Kathmandu valley. The hiking trail passes through colorful dense forests and offers majestic views of the Himalayas surrounding the traditional village. The hike takes us to Nagarkot and Dhulikhel to see the views of the towering snowcapped peaks of the central Himalayas. Nagarkot is 32 Kilometers from Kathmandu and lies at 2175 meters above sea level at a stunning location right above Bhaktapur. Nagarkot is well known for eye-catching views of sunrise and sunset over the Himalayas. It is one of the traveler’s most attractive sites out of the Kathmandu valley and offers fine views of eight Himalayan ranges, including  Numbur Himalayan Range, Everest Himalayan Range, Rolwaling Himalayan Range, Jugal Himalayan Range, Langtang Himalayan Range, Ganesh Himalayan Range, Manaslu Himalayan Range and Annapurna Himalayan Range.  Dhulikhael is another well-known tourist destination, located in the Kavre district. The numerous cultural attractions, the beauty of the traditional lifestyle, and the green vegetation make Dhulikhel an ideal place to visit to show what Nepal can offer. Dhulikhel is a paradise for its visitors offering phenomenal panoramic views of white snow-capped mountains as well as picturesque valley views. Views of the greater Himalaya including Mt. Lhotse (8516 m), Mt. Gaurishanker (7134 m), Mt. Langtang Lirung (7234 m), Mt. Ganesh Himal (7429 m), Mt. Annapurna (8091 m), and many other peaks can be seen.


Our 5-6 hour walk from Nagarkot ends at Dhulikhel where we take private transport for a one hour drive back to Kathmandu.
