I want to escape from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu; I want to hike in the non-touristic area, Ranikot is the best the place for a day hike.
Ranikot hiking is the probably the best day hiking trip purely on touristic hiking trails inside Kathmandu valley. From Kathmandu we will take 30 – 45 minutes drive to Suryabinayak temple (Ganesh Temple). At first, we will be walking on the main road then we after getting inside the forest we will be gradually hiking uphill. After an hour’s uphill hike we will be following a rough road then again we will be taking hiking trail, overall the trails are mixed with road and trek trail. It’s an easy hiking route which gives you an amazing experience of local village lifestyle. You will be surprised to see the village life unchanged lifestyle house and their living style. Houses are normally in 3 storied with a kitchen on the ground floor, bedroom on the second floor and a store on top. The small green vegetable garden next to the house where you can see seasonal vegetables growing.
To make your Ranikot hiking memorable we will eat Lunch at the local house. This hike will not disappoint you from amazing mountains, from the Ranikot top we will see the stunning views of the Himalayas and the beautiful view of Kathmandu and Bhaktapur city. If you want to stay a night in local villages we can organize and we will be carrying our own tents and matters but the food we will be eating in local houses.
