Kalinchok Scorpio Jeep Hire

We offer Scorpio jeep on rent for Kalichok darshan yatra from Kathmandu. Our jeep rental service for Kalichowk is reasonable one with experienced driver.

Kalinchok Tour by Scorpio is a 1 Night 2 Days Trip to the holy pilgrimage site in Dolakha known as Kalinchowk Temple with overnight stay at the famous touristic village, Kuri. Overall, this Kalinchowk Tour by Scorpio is just a fantastic trip to take part in for religious people, nature lovers and even people looking for a weekend retreat from the city life.

Typically, the trip to Kalinchowk Temple is a tough one as it involves days of uphill hiking or full day of driving through rough off-road to reach Kuri. But now the whole experience is much more enjoyable and easier with our Kalinchowk Tour with Scorpio package.

The main highlight of the Kalinchok trip by Scorpio is certainly the Kalinchowk Bhagawati temple, perched on a hill top at 3,842m and surrounded by stunning landscape of green hills and snowcapped mountains. Tens of thousands of pilgrims, mostly Hindus and Buddhists, make the journey every year to this temple dedicated to Kali, an incarnation of the Hindu Goddess Durga. Durga is worshiped as the mother of the universe and the goddess of power by Hindus.

Even if you aren’t religious, the trip to Kalinchok is still a worthwhile adventure for various other reasons. The most obvious one is definitely the ridiculously good views you get to witness. With good weather, you are treated to a heavenly panorama of peaks including Langtang, Ganesh Himal, Shisha Pangma, Dorje Lakpa, Jugal Himal, Gauri Shankar and more. To enjoy this view from Kalinchowk Temple, you can take the cable car for an easy journey. However, a 1-2 hour hike is also available for all the adventure lovers.

Another reason why you should definitely make the trip to Kalinchowk is Kuri Bazaar, better known as Kuri Village. Kuri Village is an assortment of mostly hotels, restaurants and lodges made to accommodate the hundreds and thousands of visitors that come to Kalinchowk every day. During winter season or whenever else there is snowfall, the number of visitors skyrockets and the reason for it is quite simple. Kuri and the area nearby becomes a snowy paradise similar to Switzerland and offers a fairly rare experience for Nepalese. Even without snow, Kuri is still a peaceful and picturesque village worth staying a night at. The prices are mostly reasonable and there are numerous options to choose from in terms of food, accommodation and much else.

Our Kalinchowk Tour by Scorpio is a 1 night 2 days trip that starts and ends in Kathmandu. In the morning, you will be picked up by our jeep from your hotel or designated meeting point. From Kathmandu, we will through the Araniko Highway and make the 132km journey to Charikot in 5-6 hours. From Charikot, we will need to drive uphill for 18 km before we finally reach Kuri. An overnight stay at a lodge in Kuri gives us plenty of time to explore the locality in the afternoon. The next morning, we can either wait till 9AM for the cable car or instead wake up early for a pre-dawn hike up to the temple where we can enjoy the breathtaking scenery. Either way, once we return to Kuri and have our breakfast, we will make the return journey to Kathmandu, following the same route as before on our Scorpio Jeep.

As mentioned earlier, Kalinchowk Trip isn’t the easiest of tours but hiring a Scorpio Jeep with experienced driver makes everything so much better; from comfort and safety to anything else. We offer Scorpio Rental for Kalinchowk Tour and various other tours at the best price. Contact us for Scorpio Jeep Hire and Rental service today!

Kalinchowk Tour Itinerary

Day 01: Drive from Kathmandu to Kuri in Scorpio, Overnight stay at Kuri Village

Kalinchowk Tour by Scorpio typically begins in Kathmandu, where we will first pick you up from your hotel or designated meeting point. A 130km journey through the Araniko Highway leads us to the popular town in Dolakha known as Charikot. A further 18km uphill drive is necessary to reach our destination, Kuri Village. Depending on the season, Kuri Village is a popular retreat to enjoy snowfall among domestic tourists. We will spend the evening exploring the area and our overnight stay will be at a lodge.

Day 02: Morning Visit to Kalinchowk Bhagawati Temple, Return Drive to Kathmandu

There are two ways to get to the Kalinchowk Bhagawati Temple. The first way is the classic option, a 1-2 hour uphill hike. The second option is a more convenient one, the cable car system that was opened recently. If you want to go the temple early in the morning, you will have to hike there as the cable car system only operates after 9 AM. Compared to hiking, cable car ride will be much faster as a one way trip takes just around 6 minutes to complete.

At the top, we will receive blessings at the Kalinchowk Bhagawati temple. The temple is situated on a hilltop at 3,842m and offers some breathtaking panoramic views all around including that of Langtang, Numbur, Gaurishankar and Ganesh Himal. After a while, we will head back down to Kuri village either via cable car or on foot. After breakfast or lunch, we will pack our things and begin our return journey to Kathmandu on our Scorpio jeep.
