How to go Kalinchowk?

How to get to Kalinchok depends on your budget time and choice. Various travel companies offer packages by bus and jeep and you can also go by your own vehicle. I don't recommend small cars and low-capacity motorbikes and scooters due to bumpy roads. You can take a local bus to Charikot and take a local bus to Kuri in the morning. the local bus only leaves in the morning, you have to reserve a jeep at other times. 

  • Some tips for traveling to Kalinchok
