Day 1Kathmandu - Suryabinayak - Pilot Baba Ashram - Ranikot Hill (2-hour travel), (4-5 hour hike)

In the early morning, after breakfast, we start our drive toward Suryabinayak. There, visit the Suryabinayak Temple, take the blessing of God Ganesh, and start hiking. Along the way, you will pass through the lush green forest, greeted by beautiful landscape views, and the more you ascend, the more spectacular the view.

On the way, visit Pilot Baba Ashram, and after another hour’s hike, reach Ghyampe Danda and finally reach Ranikot. Rest and enjoy lunch at Panorama View Tower Resort. There, you can take in the bird’s-eye view of Kathmandu Valley, surrounded by hills.

Catch a glimpse of the towering Himalayas to the north as well. Also, visit the Bhairav Temple and the remains of the Ranikot fort, built by King Prithvi Narayan Shah in the medieval period. Afterward, we make our way back to Suryabinayak and drive back to Kathmandu.
