Detail ItineraryPrice List

KAKANI , the closest mountain viewpoint to Kathmandu, straddles the valley's northwestern rim at an elevation of 2070m. Like Nagarkot, Kakani is essentially a tourist invention, as opposed to a town, with mountain views and not much else. It's much less developed than Nagarkot, and the views are somewhat inferior, but it makes a nice halt along the Trisuli road, particularly if you're biking. At least one Kathmandu company (Path Finder Cycling) operates a mountain Biking service to Kakani . Trisuli-bound public buses drop you off at a gap in the valley rim, 24km from Kathmandu, from where it's 4km up a paved side road (there are shortcuts) that passes a large police training college en route. In the days of Prithvi Narayan Shah, the Kakani pass was the Kathmandu Valley's Achilles' heel - by controlling it, he was able to besiege the valley for two years - and this installation, like that of Nagarkot, is a vestige of the days of hand-to-hand combat, when hilltop positions provided military superiority.
