Brief History about Kalinchowk
Since ancient times, the temple is situated on the top of the perilous hill. Kalinchowk is named after the goddess Kali which is related to power and destruction. It is believed that in Dwapar Yuga, Pandavas came here for meditation.
According to the myth, it is believed that Goddess Kali used to meditate in the top-hill of Kalinchowk on Sumeru Parvat. During the mediation, the evil power tried to win over Kali. After this, the war took place between goddess Kali and evils. During the war, Lord Shiva used his divine Trishul (metal weapon), and the holy water originated from the dry land, which gave the power the lion of Goddess Kali. The evils could not stay-on in the mighty Goddess Kali and were killed by her during the war.
All the evils were killed, and their bodies were decayed to the place of Kuri, and the village was found stinky, and so, from the word Kuri the area is known to be a Kuri village; which means ‘shame.’
The “water-pond” in the top of Kalinchowk, it is believed to be holy and pure after showering and taking the water from the Kunda. From the religious treatises of Durga Puran, it was said that this is the place where the goddess Devi’s right arm was the downfall. In this Kalinchowk Bhagwati pilgrims, they offer bells, Trishul, flowers, Agarbatti (incense sticks) ghee, and bangles, and chunari. Devotees come to this temple to take the holy water.which is given by adore of this temple. People have a great belief that their wishes come true after worshiping the goddess Devi with pure soul.
Kalinchowk is recently gaining huge popularity among national and international travelers and has become one of Nepal's most popular travel destinations. Due to Kathmandu (about 132km from Kathmandu), it is trendy among domestic travelers. There is a temple at a hill-top in Kalinchowk Bhagwati, from where the name Kalinchowk comes. Short trek routes and gorgeous views of the surroundings are other main reasons for gaining popularity. You can enjoy the snow during winter in the area, which is more popular among domestic tourists than international tourists. In recent times, many travel agencies in Nepal offer Kalinchowk tour packages that you can customize as per your preference.
Kalinchowk Tour is a tour to the Hindu Temple located at the top of the hill at an elevation of 3824meters from sea level in the Dolakha district near Kathmandu Valley.

Kalinchowk Bhagawati is the major reason for locals to visit this place. You can get amazing views of the Himalayas from the temple, including Lamjung, Annapurna, Ganesh Himal, and others.

Best Time to Visit Kalinchowk Kuri Village
Kalinchowk is accessible all year round; however, the best time to visit Kalinchowk depends on your visit's purpose.

But if you wish to enjoy snowfall or any other snow activities, then December, January, and February would be the ideal months for you to visit this place; you will find snow everywhere. This time is also the peak tourism season for this reason. You can enjoy lots of snow games during this time, including snowboarding. But, as it is the peak season, you will find the place crowded, and accommodation will also be a bit expensive. Kalinchowk Kuri village is a popular spot skiing place.
If you visit Kalinchowk with religious beliefs, Nepali months, Chiatra, Baisakh, Jesth, Bhadra, Asoj, and Kartik are good times to visit all age groups. But if you want to visit the Kalinchowk to play snow and enjoy snowfall, Poush and Magh is the best month.
However, this fantastic view's best time is in October, November, February, and March. We don't need to trek if you don't wish to, we can drive up there for this view.

What Our Clients Say ?
Wow moment at Kalinchowk
Wow! Wow! Wow Moment!!! It was a wow moment for me throughout the Kalinchowk Trip. I really feel refreshment and adorable in Kuri Village covered with snow. I couldn't even explain that moment of snowfall at Kuri village. The Kalinchowk is in Dolkha district at the altitude of 3842 meter above the sea level. The panaromic view of mountains like Dhaulargiri, Gauri Shankher, Langtang, Manaslu, Mount Ganesh and other mountains was an amazing and wonderful. My first time experience in Kalinchowk trip is really awesome even though it was an off road. I really enjoy during hiking from Kuri village to Kalinchowk Bhagwati temple with startling view of mountains. Finally, if I need to suggest any place to visit for my friends then it would be definitely Kalinchowk
kalinchowk - way that leads to heaven
Even though it was a planned trip of our classmates. Due to some circumstances all the friends couldnot make but me and Mahananda pandey decided to make it happen. So it was first experience of playing snow. The road was off-road type for some hours but the natural scenic view made it all forgotten. We reached the kuri village , a small village having lots of hotels situated below the hill of kalinchowk mandir. The village had mesmerizing beauty which was glorified by the snow itself. We went to hotel ( fireside) where we had to stay. It was too damn cold in the evening. That night we enjoyed the camp fire with dance and songs. The very next morning we had to go to temple and we did take the path by walking. There was a cable car too for passenger but we too decided to go on foot. It was so exhausting and enjoyable walk. We did reached at the top(at the height of 3842meter) in almost two and half hours . We saw serene power of kalinchowk bhagwati and shiv parbati kunda. It was so beautiful to look around the hill. It’s a paradise from there. We then clicked some snaps during returning from there. It’s a place to visit for those who loves fun in the natural view.
Amazing Kalinchowk Trip
The Kalinchowk trip was really amazing for me. I enjoy the snow and visit Kalinchowk Bhagwati temple at the top of the hill. The view from the top of its surroundings was fabulous. I would love to visit this place again in the future. Thank you Hiking Annapurna for organizing a trip for us. Best Value For our Cost.
Loved skiing in Kalinchowk
Ram Kaji Shrestha
Apart from the view of Dhaulagiri, Langtang, Gauri Shankar, Mount Ganesh, and other tall mountains, I loved skiing in the region.
