Annapurna (8091 m), Mt. Ganesh Himal (7429 m), Mt. Langtang (7234 m), Mt. Phuribichyachu (6637 m), Mt. Gaurishanker (7134 m), Mt. Lhotse (8516 m) and many others can be seen from Dhulikhel.
The old medieval city of Dhulikhel has not been discovered by mainstream tourists, so it is pleasantly quite. Wondering down the traffic free streets in the old town admiring the traditional Newari houses with beautiful examples of Newari craftsmanship carved into the doors and windows, you get a sense of being in a different world and time. The numerous temples in Dhulikhel depicts excellent examples of traditional and old Newari craftsmanship. Bhagwati Temple, which is situated at the top of the western part of the town, is a superb place to view Dhulikhel from a high point with some of the best mountain views.
