Great location for a dayout. Took us about 1 hour to reach to the top on scooter. The view from there is great. … … … … … ………………………………… ..

We went to the hill for bird-watching, unfortunately the first day the local TV station announced that Snow was on the Mountain resulting in what seemed half the motorbikes in the city trying to climb the hill over the morning basically scaring any and all birdlife away. The second day however saw the crowds disappear allowing more of the promised range and variety of bird-life to appear resulting in a much more pleasant experience...certainly a place to recommend for both exercise and a more relaxed option if in Katmandhu and interested in wildlife.

Phulchowki is the tallest hill around Kathmandu, during winter its covered in snow and even in summer its cool up there. The top is gurded by Nepalese Army yet you can go inside to see the tower and goddess Phulchowki.
The top has lava rock on strange formation. You can see Kathmandu from Eagles eye and other surrounding places and mountains, Its 2700 Meters high from sea level
Going there is also fun as you can drive/walk uphill through thick and untouched forest listening to birds. During spring Rhododendron blooms here coloring parts of hill cherry red.
TIP:
Carry your water if you plan to hike, its going to take 3-4 hours to reach top if you are a good walker. On the top Army have a canteen where you can buy tea(black) or ask them to make you noodles, eggs etc. Its pretty small canteen.
Stay within the walking tracks/road, people have been lost here and finding a lost person is difficult as its thick forest. Wild animals such as black bears, leopards live here though attacks on human are not recorded.

Phulchauki, the highest valley rim of Kathmandu valley located in the southern fringe is one and only kind of hill that is wonderful for nature hikes and extremely popular for birders like me. Among my many visits, this last visit in March 2019, was very memorable with so many birds, great walking experience and great Himalayan view I was lucky to see. Must visit if you are into the nature and specially birds.

We are here on our bike and scooter with little difficult way (offroad) from the Godavari to the one of the highest point of Kathmandu. We are very pleased to be here. We saw lots of kaliz (Junglefowl) and two types of Rhododendron and many types of bird, we enjoy a lot to see a great view of the surrounding mountains and Himalayas. Once is not enough for this beautiful place.

Beautiful panaromic view of Himalayas and lush green forest will refresh anybody visiting this place. Guarded by Nepalese army, there is a tower at the top of hill from where surrounding areas and High Himalayas far away can be seen like a bird. Recommended for those who wish to see Himalayas even from distant.
