First Way: Take a public bus from Ratna Bus Station (in front of Bir Hospital) to Panauti. Buses are available every five minutes. Hop on the bus before 1 p.m. so you can catch the next bus from Panauti. From here, it’s an hour and 30 minutes journey; take a bus to Dhunkharka from Panauti. After catching a bus to Dhunkharka, inform Kushal or Kamal (98011 110 861); The last bus leaves at 5:00 p.m., and the journey takes about another 1.5 hours. Get off at the Dhungkharka Geldung Bazaar/town centre by paying 95 rupees. Here, we will wait for you and walk uphill with you for about one hour. Also, if you have brought heavy baggage, let us know in advance, and we will manage a porter to carry it for you.

About Dhunkharka:

Tigers have played a major role in the history of Dhunkharka. According to the old saying, tigers used to live here before humans. One day, two people from the Newari community went to Parthali, near Dhunkharka and Chalal to meet. From there, they saw the tigers sleeping in what is now called Naraytar but then was called an open area.

Similarly, they called the site Dhunkharka after what they saw. In the Newari language, “Dhun” refers to a tiger and “kharka” refers to settlement. So, in Newari, Dhunkharka means home of tigers or a place where tigers lived.

Mt. Mahabharat, Dhungkharka

There are over 1500 households residing in this gorgeous small village as of today. The primary occupation of the village is agriculture and the village produces about 15000 litres per day. The area’s highest peak is Narayansthan, which is at 3021m above sea level ( also the highest altitude of the district and the highest point of the Mahabharat range).

From this point, you can also get a glimpse of Mount Everest, Langtang, Annapurna, Jugal, and Ganesh, among other amazingly beautiful snowcapped mountains. Moreover, the beautiful Lakdu River flows at 1400m above sea level between the boundaries of the lowest points of the village; Kunekharka and Gorkholi.

I really want to thank you Kamal and your wonderful family for allowing me to stay with you for two weeks and making me feel so welcome since the very beginning. Got to experience traditional nepali culture, work in nature, eat healthy organic food and take a breath from my everyday life. It truly was a return to nature experience. Until we meet again, take care dai.
