Kalinchowk Tour, a combination of both spiritual and natural experience, takes you on a trip to Kalinchowk Bhagawati Temple which is a Hindu shrine located at the height of 3,842m from sea level in Kalinchowk Rural Municipality in Dolkha District of Nepal. Not just for Hindu people, the place has a big significance for shamans and Bonpos also. Just 150 km away from Kathmandu, this amazing place offers a kaleidoscopic beauty of Kuri village and Gaurishankar Himalayan range along with the other snow-capped mountains.
It is a part of Gaurishankar Conservation Area from where two rivers Sun Koshi and Tama Koshi are originated. It is a famous temple of Goddess Kali with panoramic views of Langtang Lirung, Rolwaling Range, Dorje Lakpa, Gaurishankar, Ganesh Himal etc. Most of the people visit this place in winter season and it is the best nearby place from Kathmandu to enjoy snowfall. Normally travelers visit Kalinchowk for its pilgrimage significance. But in recent years, it has grown as a popular destination for domestic travelers who seek to enjoy a quick and refreshing escape from the city.
