Kakani

Sunday, October 7, 2007

This village is situated on a ridge northwest of Kathmandu and offers good views of the western and central Himalayas. Although I personally prefer the view from Nagarkot, those interested in enjoying the variety of Himalayan scenery, especially magnificent views of Ganesh Himal, should go there. It is quieter than Nagarkot but the food available has less variety and caters less to western tastes. There is a lodge run by the Department of Tourism which has the cheapest prices for the rooms available there.

To get to Kakani is not that difficult as it is a short trip from Kathmandu Valley. You can take a bus or a minibus at Sorakhutte at Kaulethan about two hours from Kathmandu on the road to Trisuli. From thee it is about one hour’s walk along a dirt road to the top of the ridge. You can find lots of Kathmandu Valley people coming there in groups to have a nice day picnic as well. I am sure this would be one hell of experience for the nature lovers who mostly love the scenery of the great Himalayas and beautiful hills seen from Kakani.
