Overview

The name Phulchowki translates to ‘Hill of Flowers.’ It lives to its name as it consists of a variety of vegetation combined with the numerous species of birds and butterflies makes it a hiker’s paradise. The hill is the biggest in the Kathmandu Valley, and its proximity to the capital further increases its charm. The hiking begins at the Godavari, and the uphill trail will test you and force you to level up. Traverse the tropical forests and make your way to its summit to catch a picturesque view of the Kathmandu valley and the snow-laden mountain ranges like Annapurna and Gaurishankar on the background. In winter, the hill is prone to face snowfall, making it the only place in the valley to experience snowfall.

This one day trip can be arranged as per your wish. Just give us a call and we will arrange it.
