Kalinchowk – An Adventure Pilgrimage

Kalinchowk – An Adventure Pilgrimage

Situated at the top of Charikot, Dolakha, Kalinchowk proves a must go destination for religious pilgrims and travel enthusiasts. The trip offers scenic views all along the ride and the best part begins when one starts the uphill journey from Khadichaur. The road upto Charikot is blacktopped and a comfortable ride except the U-turns typical of hilly highways.

Some can be seen enjoying Barbecue besides the fire. People start the ascent of Kalinchowk early in the morning without eating anything as it is considered pure in Hindu Religion to offer prayers. The time to reach the top depends upon individuals. For some, it’s a 15 minute walk , and for some it’s a tough...
