All Year Round
Bajrabarahi Godavari Day Hike is short hiking nearby the Kathmandu valley. The temple - BajraBarahi is very a famous Hindu pilgrimage site with some fascinating architecture. We start the hiking after a short drive of 30 minutes from Kathmandu to the Bajra Barahi Temple in Patan.
In addition to the Bajra Barahi Temple, you can observe the lifestyle of the people and the traditional agriculture of the area. You will also see the highest surrounding hill in Kathmandu, Phulchoki Hill, as you walk past this famous temple. This area, although not far from the city, has a traditional way of life and agriculture.
As you go down the trail, you can see the view of the high mountains such as Langtang Lirung, the Ganesh Himal mountain range, and the eighth highest mountain in the world, Manaslu. The trails are very easy with few climbs and half goes through the village and the other half goes through the forest. After walking around 3 hours at a gentle pace, we arrive at the botanical garden where we will take our lunch.
After exploring the botanical garden, we will walk for a short time towards the foot of Pulchowki. We will spend an ample amount of time there and return to the bus stand and drive back to the Kathmandu Valley.
