- 40 euros€40
Half-day to full day trek to the top of Pulchowki hill, the highest hill in the Kathmandu valley, culminating at 2800m. As it is located south of the valley, you can enjoy amazing views of the Langtang mountains behind Shivapuri Conservation Area, Patan area and Kathmandu. Pack some snacks and head to Godavari, where the hike starts. You will first hike alongside rice paddies and hill villages. As you get to the Pulchowki hill itself, 2 options: either taking the loopy road up or take the stairs as shortcuts. And if you go right after a rainy day in the valley from December to April, you may well catch snow on top, which is quite a popular destination for Nepalis!
