Welcome to Dhulikhel
Dhulikhel is one of the more popular places from which to observe the high Himalaya. From the edge of the ridge, a stunning panorama of peaks unfolds, from Langtang Lirung (7227m) in the west, through Dorje Lakpa (6966m) to the huge bulk of Gauri Shankar (7134m) and nearby Melungtse (7181m), and as far as Numbur (5945m) in the east. The most common itinerary is two nights with a side trip to the sacred stupa at Namobuddha, a 12km drive or three-hour walk south.
Unlike that other popular viewpoint, Nagarkot, Dhulikhel is also a real Newari town, with a temple-lined village square and a life outside of tourism.
