You are invited to hike at the holy mysterious area of Kathmandu called Sankhu. It is also well-known as “Shankharapur” for its renowned prehistoric Sankha-shaped town structure with pristine, simplicity and marvelous trails. Sankhu is 16 km far and one hour drive from Kathmandu which is the primitive Newari town. The Newari town encompasses Newari culture with its appealing arts and crafts. The flow of the Sali River has brought different legends and the place is frequently visited as a pilgrimage tour.
After hiking around Sankhu, we head towards Bajrayogini temple which is about 2 km. This temple is the most important and famous place for tantric practices. It is sited in the middle of the hill where hikers can view the wonderful hills, forest, and mountain backdrop. You can observe various other shrines and statues behind the temple. This place is also notable as the Eighty Siddhas (perfected gurus) of the Hindu religion and four of five caves where the Siddhas are said to have resided. After viewing the place of interest of Sankhu we can retrace back to the vehicle. Then drive back to Kathmandu.
