Dakshinkali Temple and Asura Cave: Pharping Day Hike

Dakshinkali Temple and Asura Cave: Pharping Day Hike, Pharping, Nepal (B)

My time in Pharping, Nepal felt so full. There were so many things to do and see, and I wanted to see it all. The owners of the Solid Rock Lodge offered us a few different day hikes so that we could walk and see everything at once without having to go to the dusty highway that cuts through the center of town. The hike shown below starts and ends at Solid Rock Lodge and Restaurant, however you can adjust that if you decide to start somewhere else. During this hike, you’ll be in the woods for an hour to an hour and a half. Then, you’ll walk through part of the city before heading back. It’s the perfect way to experience a few of the famous sites in town including Asura Cave and Dakshinkali Temple.

Our day started at Solid Rock Lodge, which is a homestay style hotel run by a Danish man and his Nepali wife. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. It’s one of my favorites in Nepal. It’s tucked away in the peaceful hills of Pharping, surrounded by farmland, forests, and village life. Yet, it’s a five-minute walk from wonderful sightseeing. The owners are incredible friendly, and they helped plan this hike for us. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
