Fulchoki Kathmandu Hiking
Hiking to the beautiful Fulchowki(2,834m) has been one of the major highlights of the Valley. As the highest hill in the southern Kathmandu, this place is perfect for bird watching and experience the vegetation and the landscapes. Located 14km south of Kathmandu, we drive all the way to the Botanical Garden in the Godavari. From there, we start our hike upward to the thick sub-tropical forest. It takes around four hours to reach the top and the trail is not so difficult. The beautiful clouds, as well as the scene of the Annapurna range to Gaurisankher in the east, makes this trip even more memorable. This is a must visit adventure for those who are here to stay for a short time and want to observe the scenic beauty of the cultural capital.
