    What to Expect
    Early morning after breakfast drive towards Suryabinayak. Start the hike taking bless from Suryabinayak- a god having elephant head that is worshipped first in Hindu religion in any religious work. Along the way, you will pass through beautiful landscape view, greeted by lush greenery and how much you go up and up the view is more and more spectacular.

    On the way, visit Pilot Baba Ashram. After an hour pleasant hike reach in Ghampe Danda and take a tea break. After another one hour hike, you will reach in Ranikot. Take lunch and rest in Panorama View Tower Resort. You will see the airplanes flying below your height. The bird eyes view of Kathmandu Valley, eye level hills and northern high Himalayas are just marvelous.

    After lunch, we hike back to Kathmandu visiting Bhairav temple, the Ranikot Fort (only vanish remain) built by King Prithvi Narayan Shah in the medieval period (Malla Dynasty). Ranikot is a hill point to see the three cities of Kathmandu valley i.e. Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur at once. Dinner and overnight in Kathmandu.
