Kalinchowk trekking is start at Barabise after 4 hours drive from Kathmandu. You will come across some villages mainly inhabited by Tamangs, Sherpas, and Brahmins. They are beautiful and people are so friendly. We can see few monasteries and Temples along the way. A good view of the Mountains and Sunkoshi River can also be seen. After crossing Sherpa villages you come across a thick forest with lots of Rhododendron trees and continue to Kalinchowk. From the highest altitude of Kalinchowk (3579meters) one can get excellent view of Annapurna, Lamjung, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Shisha Panga , Langtang, Dorjee Lakpa, Jugal Himal, Amabamori, Gauri Shanker and Namburi Himal.
There is also a prominent temple of the Hindus called the Kali Bhagawati temple. Two natural springs originate from this area which are called Sundhara and Tama which are the main source of the very big two rivers the Sunkoshi and Tama Koshi rivers. From Kalinchowk we can also get a good view of Kathmandu valley at night.
The national flowers of Nepal Rhododendron (Laligurans) and the national bird Pheasant (Danfe) can also be seen in this area. While descending to Suspa you could get to see a very rare community in Nepal called "The Thami." The trek ends at Charikot, which is also a district headquarters. Trekkers carry only daypack and walk at their own pace.
