The traditional Newari town of Dhulikel is easily reached from Kathmandu by means of the Ariniko Highway, which links Nepal with Tibet.
By car the journey takes around an hour each way.
So, this makes Dhulikel an easy proposition for a day trip from Kathmandu. Just like Nagarkot, Dhulikel is perhaps best known for its panoramic views of the Himalayas. However, the difference is that Dhulikel is a real living, breathing and working Newari town with a Kathmandu University Campus too.
As well as the views, and these are usually at their best in the mornings and late afternoons before the daily clouds obscure the mountains, Dhulikel is rather a nice place to just wander around. There are quite a few schools here and the local children in their immaculate school uniforms are a colourful sight.
You could also quite easily enjoy day walks around the Dhulikel area. The surrounding landscape is very pretty with small, organic farms and tiny villages, where life seems to move at a much slower pace and little seems to have changed either.
