You can never get enough of the mountains. There is something about the scenic beauty and tranquillity of the majestic peaks that just makes you want to stay there forever and breathe in the pure fresh air. Dhulikhel in the Kathmandu Valley is one such place, which offers picturesque views of the high Himalayas and the range of peaks that it comprises of, right from the Langtang Lirung in the west to the Dorje Lakpa, Gauri Shankar and Melungtse, and then Numbur in the east. You just have to be willing to climb a little over the village to enjoy these panoramic views.
Unlike Nagarkot, which is also a popular tourist attraction in the same area, Dhulikhel is a genuine Newari town and is thus the perfect place to visit if you want to explore the authentic culture and heritage of the area. This is perhaps why people often prefer to stay here for about two nights so that they can thoroughly explore this quaint little area and soak in the mountain sunshine. Leisurely walks are also located all around the village, and tourists simply set on foot to wander around.
