If you wish to spend some days in the lap of nature and be revitalized by the beauty and pure environment of Nepal then Dhulikhel-Nagarkot-Kakani trek is your perfect choice. This is one of the short and easy treks around Kathmandu valley.

The trekking trail presents you the opportunity to admire the beautiful shrines, temples and stupas along with the panoramic mountain views of the Himalayas.

Nagarkot, which is a single day hiking from Dhulikhel is also one of the famous spot for viewing the sunrise and sunset in their best forms.

Located 29 kilometres north-west of the Kathmandu city, the fabulous holiday area of Kakani features attractions ranging from beautiful alpine scenery to the magnificent Himalayan panorama particularly of the Ganesh Himal massif.
