Dhulikhel holidays

This old Newari town is 32 kilometres outside Kathmandu, and was once a stop on the trade route to Lhasa. The wealth which passed through manifests itself in impressive old buildings, many with ornate wooden lattices in place of glass windows. These huge houses are extended family dwellings; some Dhulikhel clans number eighty or more members. There are various Hindu temples to see here and it is also possible to get a restricted view of the Himalaya from several places around the town. For a full vista, a sunrise walk to Kali shrine at 1715 metres will provide views from Annapurna to Everest.
