    Kalinchowk Trek 3 days

    Kuri village - Kalinchowk trek

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

    It’s a three days trek package and starts from Kathmandu. We take a scenic drive of 6-7 hours towards the east from the city, bypassing very beautiful villages, valleys, crystal clear rivers, bridges, spiral roads, and some beautiful viewpoints like Khari Dhunga on the way. Then we finally reached 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 started our hike toward our destination. Today's hike takes 6-7 hours to reach the beautiful village of Kuri. On the way, you will witness panoramic mountain views of the local people, their traditions, and their 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 taking an 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 to the top of Kalinchowk, where you see Kalinchwok temple, praying flags, and bells dedicated to the famous Kalinchowk Bhagawati. This hilltop offers breathtaking panoramic views of Langtang Himal, Ganesh Himal, Shisha Pangma, Dorje Lakpa, Jugal Himal, and Gauri Shankar, etc. can even see the Kathmandu valley on a clear day. This hilltop of Kalinchowk holds the maximum elevation(3780 m approx.) during our Kalinchowk trek -3 days.
