Panorama of Kalinchowk, Dolakha

Kalinchowk is famous but rarely visited by tourists, compared to other famous mountains in the Himalayas . It is located above an altitude of 3,842 m( 12,605 ft) and 18 km(11.2 mile) north from Dolakha bazar in Dolakha District. On the top of Kalinchowk is an open air Hindu temple dedicated to Kali, wife of God Shiva. A small pond, numerous Trishuls (tridents) and small bells are also seen around it. While looking from the peak, panoramic views of the Himalayan range leave one speechless. There are two peaks on Kalinchowk and an iron ladder connects one peak to another. You can see a broken house across it, which had been used for Hindu pilgrims. A small hill is behind it.
