Dhulikhel – Nagarkot Trekking

Dhulikhel Nagarkot Trekking 

This is a easy trek to an area north east of Kathmandu that is somewhere off the beaten trail. This is very nice trek for people who do not have much time or who want to trek on a short and easy route. the mountain views are spectacular. the maximum height elevation is about 8500 ft. or 2562m. so this is an excellent choice for the spring trek as the area is mostly covered with a dense forest. The rhododendron including dephenies and all the spring flowers will be out. bird watching is good on this trek so make sure to bring you r binoculars with you if you have one.
