How Far is Halesi Temple from Kathmandu?

Distance between Halesi and Kathmandu is 205 km. It takes 7 hours to reach

Halesi Mahadev is a popular pilgrimage site in Khotang, Nepal that is known for the Halesi Mahadev temple and the amazing cave system that lies underground. Halesi is located roughly 220 kilometers east of the capital, Kathmandu. Driving through the BP Highway, we will pass Dhulikhel, Nepalthok, Khurkot and drive past Okhaldhunga and finally enter Khotang to reach Halesi in about 8-9 hours. The Halesi Mahadev Darshan Yatra is a very enjoyable one as the roads are generally well maintained with stunning landscape and scenery all around. The roads tend to get narrower and rougher on the latter parts but our Scorpio Jeep is well equipped to deal with that so that there is no compromise in safety and comfort. Depending on how early we start, we can reach from Kathmandu to Halesi around late afternoon. You can go for some sightseeing and exploration but we recommend saving the temple visit for the next morning.

Halesi Mahadev is the most famous natural cave in Khotang that is believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva according to various legends. Inside the cave, you can see two feet tall Shiva Linga as well as two pillars that makeup a narrow pass. Also known as the Pashupatinath of Eastern Nepal, Halesi Mahadev temple is one of the holiest sites for pilgrims that wish to worship Lord Shiva. The three caves there represent the three eyes of Lord Shiva. The first eye depicts an image of Lord Shiva known as Haleshwor, the second one of Nandi and the third of Bhairav.

The Halesi Mahadev temple is sacred to not just Hindus but Buddhists as well, since there are various legends associated with Mandarava and Padmasambhava to this site. Either way, we will have enough time to fully explore Halesi in the morning. After a while, we will head back to the hotel for breakfast before beginning our return journey along the same route as before. In around 8-9 hours, we will be back in Kathmandu and the Overland Jeep Tour to Halesi Mahadev will successfully be completed.
