Nagarjun Hill/Kakani Hiking


This is a thought-provoking ramble concluded from oak, rhododendron as well as pine forest. Only 26 km. north-west of Kathmandu, we can understand the mountain backdrop of central Nepal, a enormous gathering of wonderful mountains extending from Ganesh Himal towards Annapurna and Dhaulagiri series. There is a bizarrely perfect mixture of the imposing mountain scenery with the more sylvan environment of the lower valleys. Rhododendrons growing wild on the mountain slopes begin to bloom in late winter and stay in bloom for several months, giving the village even more charm. Kakani is famous for its immense beauty. The whole valley is surrounded by Rhododendron trees. Strawberry wine is well-known drink in this valley. The local cuisine here is finger licking tasty.You ramble about three hours to Bhanjyang, which ensures comprise a 20 minute sheer climb before accomplishing the concluding site. The serenity of the surrounding gives you the immense pleasure and the Himalayas like Annapurna, Machhapuchhare, Ganesh; Langtang can be viewed from the top of the hill. After detouring around the area here, you retrace the same path back to Kakani in around two and half hours then then drive back to Kathmandu.
