Kalinchowk Cultural Trekking

Kalinchowk Cultural Trekking

Kalinchowk is a very popular place where a temple of the Hindus Goddess Kali is located at an elevation of 3579 m above sea level.Goddess Kali at Kalinchowck is highly regarded as a wish- fulfilling goddess. On the occasion of Janaipurnima, Dasai, Chaite Dasai, a religious celebration takes place at the temple. Many people from different parts of Nepal pay a visit to this pilgrimage site on every religious occasion. Recently some trekking agencies are deliberately promoting Kalinchowk as trekking Destinations. One who wants to explore non touristic area as well as indigenous culture in Nepal, Kalinchowk cultural trek could be the best option. Trekking to Kalinchowk offers stunning views of eastern mountains and in spring season one can see the entire forest of the area blooming with rhododendron flowers (Laligurans). Kalinchowk trekking is also highly recommended for nature lovers who enjoy the viewing of colorful rhododendron in a non touristy region. The trailhead starts in Barabise after a few hours drive from Kathmandu on the way to Kodari Nepal and Tibet border and ends at Charikot, the district headquarter.

Kalinchowk is not only popular for Hindu pilgrimage site but it also gives insight into a unique environment and is exceptionally rich in bio-diversity in such a higher altitude. While trekking, one can enjoy great views of Himalayan mountain range such as Annapurna, Lamjung, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Shisha Panga, Langtang, Dorjee Lakpa, Jugal Himal, Amabamori, Gauri Shanker, Numbur Himal and enchanting green hills. From Kalinchowk one can also enjoy a good view of Kathmandu valley at night. Nonetheless, few Buddhist monasteries and other Hindu temples can also be sighted along the trail. One can also encounter the bustling settlement of various ethnic groups of people – Bramins, Chhetris, Sherpas, Tamangs in the lap of mountains. As there are no lodges available along the route, we have to organise full board camping for overnight stay at each place.
