1. At the top you will find the shrine of Kalinchowk Bagwati surrounded by metal tridents (Trishuls) and bells and the snowy spires of Gaurishankar, Melungste and other Himalayan peaks rearing majestically in the background.
2. Two days, involving drive to & ktm & five to six hours of trekking each day.
looking for above 3000 m. hieght hiking yes, Kalinchowk might be just right for you. To hike up Kalinchowk hill, you need to get to Charikot, situated about 150 kilometers from Kathmandu. You can take a local bus or rent a vehicle to get there. Kalinchowk is named after the hill top shrine dedcated to Kali (a Hindu Goddess) known as Kalinchwk Bhagwati. Moreover, you can see the two great rivers, Sunkoshi and Tamakoshi.
Beginning your hike from Charikot, you reach Kuri,a small settlement, at dusk and spend the night there at a local tea house. The next day’s climb is arduous and involves a really steep ascent (not for the fainthearted!) up a precipitous trail.
Standing at the top and savoring the heavenly views, you may forget your aches and pains and feel the back breaking climb worth the spectacular vista. The descent , though not easy on the knees, is much quicker. You can return to Kathmandu the same day.
