Phulchoki is the highest hill surrounding the Kathmandu valley at an altitude of 2750 m. The people of Kathmandu have known Phulchoki for playing with snow and thus, day hike here is one of the beautiful experience observing the lush green forests of surrounding the area.
After breakfast, we drive around 14 kms (45 minutes) to the Botanical Garden of Godavari with a packed lunch box. From Godavari, we start our hiking gradually uphill all the way through the sub-tropical thick forest for about an hour.
The magnificent view from the eastern part of Annapurna range to Gaurishanker in the east can be seen from here on a clear day apart from the breathtaking views of Kathmandu valley.
After lunch and strolling around for some time, we hike down following the same trail to the Godavari for about 2 and half hours.
