As the name suggests, the major aim of the Dolakha-Kalinchowk Trek is to cover a route from Dolakha to Kalinchowk which is a perfect route for trekking.

The pristine landscapes and colorful villages here are just awesome and enjoyable.

Kalinchowk sits at an altitude of 3,842m. We will arrive at this location after a drive from Kathmandu Valley to Charikot. This will take 6-7 hours. As the elevation increases during the trek, we can enjoy views of several mountain peaks.  The big natural views from Kalinchowk will take your breath away. The Dolakha Kalinchowk Trek is a unique combination of cultural heritage and exploration of natural beauty. Interacting with the local inhabitants who reside in these areas will help you understand Nepali culture and its traditions.

Are you free for a week or less and trying to escape the urban lifestyle to enjoy the beauty of nature? Look no further than the Kalinchowk Hike. Kalinchowk is a beautiful hill station and a highly visited tourist spot. A lot of people, both national and international, come to visit this hotspot every year. In addition, this sacred place is a special pilgrimage for Hindu devotees.

Now let’s talk about the location of Kalinchowk. To reach Kalinchowk, you must drive 150 kilometers to the northeast sector of Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. One of the best aspects of Kalinchowk is that it gives you an outstanding view of several mountains, such as Jugal Himal, Gauri Shankar, Ganesh Himal, Langtang Himal, Dorje Lakpa, and Eastern mountain region. This hiking spot is an easy point to reach from Kathmandu, and yet get the most intimate and transparent view of the Himalayas. As Kalinchowk is located in Charikot, a direct local bus or private cars are available from Kathmandu.

Upon arriving at Charikot, you will start the hike of 5-6 hours to reach Kuri village. During this walk, you will encounter a variety of flora and fauna. We assure you that the views and sights you will experience during this walk will relax your mind and keep you moving forward with inspiration on your way to Kuri village. Kuri village is the trailhead and checkpoint of the Kalinchowk hike, and it is home to several lodges and tea houses where hikers can rest after a long walk.

From this location, a one-hour walk will take you to the historic Kalinchowk Bhagwati Temple, a sacred site for spiritual Hindu devotees. The temple is dedicated to Goddess Bhagwati. Pilgrims visit the temple to seek blessings and perform religious rituals. From Kuri village, the hikers will ascend to the Kalinchowk hill summit at 3790m. We recommend you wake up early in the morning to see one of the most mesmerizing sunrise views of a lifetime.
