Short trek routes and gorgeous views of the surroundings are other main reasons for gaining popularity for this reason.

Best of Kalinchowk
Kalinchowk Bhagawati Tour is a tour to the Hindu Temple located in the top of the hill at an elevation of 3824meters from sea level in the Dolakha district near Kathmandu Valley. The temple used to be popular among local tourists only. Still, after the facility of cable cars and the development of other essential infrastructures, it is gaining popularity among domestic as well as international tourists. Kalinchowk Bhagawati is the primary reason for locals to visit this place. From the temple, you can get amazing views of the Himalayas, including Lamjung, Annapurna, Ganesh Himal, and others.
In Kalinchowk, you can find varieties of Rhododendrons, the national flower of Nepal. Just lay your eyes upon these majestically beautiful flowers, you will be mesmerized. You will have the opportunity to savour the beauty of different kinds of Rhododendrons, such as Sunpate and tree Rhododendrons throughout your trek to Kalinchowk. These flowers are also used as a medicine for the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders, inflammatory conditions, common cold, etc.
Kalinnchowk trekking is another highlight of this place. It is a perfect destination for those who have limited time and still want to get the taste of trekking in Nepal. A bus or jeep will take you from Kathmandu to Charikot. And then 5-6 hours of the hike through rhododendron forest will take you to the beautiful village of Kure, right below the Kalinchowk hill. We recommend you to stay a day in Kure village so that you can enjoy the beautiful sunshine the next morning. After an hour of trek, you will be at the top of the hill from where the panoramic view of the mountain can be seen.
In cement times, Skiing in Kalinchowk has been gaining popularity and attracting lots of adventurous lovers. Due to skiing, the number of tourists in Kalinchowk has been rapidly increasing nowadays. Nepal can bring out the best of skiing experience due to its eight highest mountains in the world. Despite this advantage, Skiing & Heli-Skiing is completely a new sport for Nepalese society. One of the main reasons that skiing was not popular among Nepalese people is the location of the Himalayas. They are long-distance from Kathmandu. However, this is not a problem with Kalinchowk. Within just about 132km from Kathmandu, any adventure enthusiast can enjoy world-class skiing. When it comes to price, Skiing in Kalinchowk begins from 500USD per person.
From the top of the Kalinchowk hill, one can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the many Himalayas such as Annapurna, Manaslu Lamjung, Shisha Pangma, Ganesh Himal, Langtang, DorjeeLakpa, Gaurishankar, JugalHimal, and Namburi Himal.
How to Get to Kalinchowk
Renting a private jeep from Kathmandu and head directly to Kuri Village and then trek to Kalinchowk hill is the most convenient way to reach Kalinchowk. You can reach Kuri Village before nightfall if you start the trip early in a private jeep.
Another option is to take a bus from Kathmandu to Charikot and then ride a jeep to Kuri village. Remember that you need to spend a night at Chairkot if you travel by bus to Charikot from Kathmandu. However, you don’t have to worry about accommodation and facilities; Charikot is the headquarters of Dolakha, and the infrastructures are adequately developed. A side trip option of visiting Dolakha Bhimsen Temple is also available, which is within a 20minutes drive from Charikot. Kuri village is within walking distance of 10-12 hours from Charikot, and the trail can be quite strenuous. You will find the trail mostly uphill from Deurali to Kuri village, and there is no accommodation facility along the way. So, it is better to start your trek early in the morning and reach Kuri village before nightfall.
There are two options from Kuri Village. You can either trek to the top of the hill to Kalinchowk Bhagawati Temple, dedicated to the Hindu goddess of destruction or take a cable car from Kalinchowk cable car station if you don’t like strenuous activities. The cable car will directly take you to the top of the hill, which costs around Rs. 500.
