kakani day tour
Nepal is hilly mountainous country covered with the green lush forests and enriched by the waterfalls and rivers nestled harmoniously with the courteous people. Kakani is the green lush forested Hill station best for the panoramic views of the mountains and hilly terrain of Dhading, Nuwakot and Kathmandu. The place is very cool and often surrounded by fog and clouds even in summer days. This beautiful hill top viewpoint is located in Nuwakot district but it is very near to Kathmandu.
Kakani provides escape route for city dwellers to get up close with the nature and return back to the city after day’s hiking or dry picnic. These days the cannoning and trout fishing has been very popular touristic activities in the area. The bus drive will take you to the Ranipauwa Chowk from where hiking starts. After 2 hours of walking in the trail on the top of hill provides magnificent scenery on both sides of the trail. The paddy fields on your left side and the picturesque hilly landscape on your right side will provide awesome scenic beauty. The Himalayan range in the horizon and the hills would act as the canvas of the highly talented painter. If the weather is very clear then you can see the Nuwakot Palace which bears great ancient history of Nepal.
