    • Day01

      Morning drive towards towards Lalitpur / Patan area which is located in the south of Kathmandu valley. After reaching a small town of Godavari, we hike to Phulchowki Hill with 4-5 hrs walks both ways to the road-head.

      After having a hearty breakfast, we leave the city to cross over Baghmati bridge to enter into Patan / Lalitpur district. And then, the drive leads further east reaching lovely green areas at Godavari a small town and a village. It’s a beautiful place with interesting Botanical garden also for wild herbs.

      From here the walk leads on winding uphill facing views of peaks and valley entering into more wooded areas and finally reach on top of Phulchowki hill. And, it’s the place which rewards you with a stunning panorama of Himalayan mountains and dramatic landscapes.

      After a quiet and peaceful moment with the sound of birds, we start heading downhill at Godavari. If time permits, then we visit the botanical garden. And if not, we take less an hour drive back to the hotel, with fabulous time on Phulchowki day hike.
