Hiking Options

If you love a short hike, you can begin from Suryabinayak up to Ranikot hill ridge via Pilot Baba Aashram. Although the route follows the road, the isolated route and fresh greeneries make the trip wonderful. It's almost uphill climbing and takes about 2 hours climbing and about 45 minutes descending. The rest of the time you visit the surroundings, enjoy taking pictures, and have lunch.

Another hiking option is beginning from Ghyampe Danda to Ranikot and extends the hike to Panauti. This is the best-recommended hiking.

You can also choose the hike from Ranikot to Lakuri Bhanjyang or Phulchoki.
