A Day Hiking to Phulchowki (2782 m)

Trip Overview

Phulchowki (2782m) lies in the southern part of Kathmandu. It is the highest hill of that region. We begin our journey after breakfast in the hotel. You can either come to the gate of the Garden of Dreams or opt to travel from your hotel itself. The journey in a vehicle is of around 14 kms southwards from Kathmandu to reach the botanical garden of Godavari. From Godavari, we start our hiking via sub-Tropical forest for about an hour. In a clear day, the scenic view of Mt. Annapurna range to Gaurishankar range can be seen in the eastern side of the trail. The hilltop of Phulchoki is also famous for birdwatching. We will have our packed lunch along the trail. After lunch, we stroll around for some time and hike downwards following the same route to Godavari. The descend takes around 2 hours. Once we reach the botanical garden of Godavari, we drive back to Kathmandu.
