Skiing in Kalinchowk

Description

Skiing in Nepal

Kalinchowk Bhagwati Temple is a Hindu shrine in Kuri village of Dolakha District, Nepal which lies in the north-eastern region of Nepal. It is situated at the altitude of 3842m from sea-level. It is a part of Gaurishankar Conservation Area from where two rivers Sun Kosi and Tama Kosi originate.

To go up to Kalinchowk hill, you will need to get to Charikot which is situated at about 150 kilometers from Kathmandu.. You can take a local bus or rent a vehicle to get there. From Charikot which is the headquarter of Dolakha District, it is nearly 2 hours drive to get Kuri village and near by Kalinchowk hill. The hike would sum up to about 400 meters from Kuri village which takes around 1 hours. At the top of the hill you can visit the shrine of Kalinchowk Bagwati which is surrounded by metal tridents and bells and the snowy spires of Gaurishankar and other Himalayan peaks rearing majestically in the background. Standing at the top and savoring the heavenly views, you may forget the tiredness of your journey which is totally worth the spectacular vista. It gets usually crowded during peak winter season.
