Trekking Destinations >Around Kathmandu > Kakani-Nagarkot -Dhulikhel Trek

Looking for a taste of Himalayan trekking, but are limited in time or physical ability? The foothills around Kathmandu host unspoiled Nepali village life, centuries of history, and intense views of Himalayan snow peaks.

This route is a must for people looking for an easy hike around Kathmandu Valley. The high point of the ridge, at 2732m, provides a stunning view of the city and its outskirts. Much of the trek is made through unspoiled old growth forests of oak, rhododendron and beech. Spot deers, monkeys and jackals along the trail. The trek goes through many beautiful villages.
