Only 26 km. north-west of Kathmandu, we can see the mountain scenery of central Nepal, a massive collection of magnificent peaks stretching from Ganesh Himal to Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. There is a strangely ideal combination of the imposing mountain scenery with the more sylvan environment of the lower valleys. Rhododendrons growing wild on the mountain slopes begin to bloom in late winter and stay in bloom for several months, giving the village even more charm.
Drive to 21 km. to Kakani and a 3 km walk to the main Kathmandu – Dhunche (Rasuwa) road. It takes about 1 hour to get Kakani from Kathmandu by car. Buses to Kakani depart from the Kathmandu bus station on Ring Road. You can also catch from there a bus to Trisuli or Dhunche and get down to Kaule.
Kakani, Kakani hill station, Kakani hill, Kakani-Kathmandu mountain biking. It is a long, but interesting bike ride or cycling tour from Kathmandu. The road is paved all the way and is not that tough of a climb, but it is constant. It is a downhill ride back. To get to Kakani, you turn off the Dhunche road a little before the Kaule police checkpoint. There is a sign for the Tara Goan Kakani Hotel and a police training college at the turnoff.
