    Kalinchowk Trek 3 days

    Kalinchowk Trek -3 days is one of the shortest and most beautiful trekking in Nepal. Unlike other short treks in Nepal like Poonhill trek and Mardi Himal trek which lies in Annapurna region, this lies in off the beaten region of Gaurishankar Conservation Area.

    It’s a 3 days trek package and starts from the city of Kathmandu. We take a scenic drive of 6-7 hours towards east from the city bypassing very beautiful villages, valleys, crystal clear rivers, bridges, spiral roads and also some beautiful viewpoints like Khari Dhunga on the way. Then we finally reach the starting point of our trek, Makaibari. This is also the destination for our first overnight stay. The place is nearby Charikot which is also the capital of Dolakha district.

    The next day, we start our hike towards our destination. Todays hike takes 6-7 hours of duration to reach the beautiful village of Kuri. On the way you will be witnessing panoramic mountain views with local people, their traditions and culture. The trekking trail is somehow vehicle friendly but during Kalinchowk snowfall, it’s very hard to take a drive and make it to Kuri village. After reaching this amazing village, we’re done for today and take a overnight stay here.

    Another day is the most important day of our Kalinchowk Trek -3 days. We wake up early in the morning and hike up to the top of Kalinchowk, where you see Kalinchwok temple, praying flags and bells dedicated to the famous Kalinchowk Bhagawati. This hill top offers the breathtaking panoramic views of Langtang Himal, Ganesh Himal, Shisha Pangma, Dorje Lakpa, Jugal Himal, Gauri Shankar etc. and can even see the Kathmandu valley in a clear day. This hill top of Kalinchowk holds the maximum elevation(3780 m approx.) during our Kalinchowk trek -3 days.
