Day 4: Nagarkot - Dhulikhel - 2-3
Enjoy a beautiful sunrise and crystal clear mountain views in the morning (dependant on weather). Later on, drive to Dhulikhel. Enjoy great sunset and evening
Himalayan panorama view. Overnight in hotel.
Dhulikhel is situated on main highway to Tibet and serves as a main trading hub between Nepal and Tibet. The town is Newar
settlement. The Newars are an ethnic group of Nepal who originally inhabited the Kathmandu Valley. They are renowned for their outstanding craftsmanship and woodcarving
skills, which is evident in all the traditional homes around the old town. Newars are also perhaps the oldest and most traditional of Nepal’s ethnic groups and have a
culture strongly based on religion. Aside from the breathtaking panoramic views of the Himalaya stretching from Langtang to Everest and beyond, there are plenty of
interesting places to see in the town. You could walk around the town and loose yourself to time in the tangle of cobbled laneways, discover ancient houses with sagging
wooden frame works, intricate carvings, hidden temples and thriving market squares. To the east of the town, you can climb the “Hazar Sindhi” (one thousand steps) to
the Kali Temple, where you can be inspired by the snow capped peaks rearing above the steeply terraced foothills.
