Kalinchowk Tour is not only popular in the winter, but it is also a safe place to visit in the summer. However, for most of the winter seasons, particularly during the snowfall season, there will be a large number of people who will occasionally exceed Kuri Village's carrying capacity.
As a result, travelers may not receive high levels of pleasure from food and lodging as a result of the crowds, therefore we always advise you to avoid the holidays, particularly on Fridays and Saturdays, to get the full Kalinchowk experience.
In the Dolkha District, 150 kilometers east of Kathmandu, Kalinchowk Temple is one of the most renowned Hindu pilgrimage locations. The temple is located at an elevation of 3842 meters in Kalinchowk, a rural municipality in Nepal's Dolakha province. The Gaurishankar Conservation Area encompasses this temple. Sun Koshi and Tama Koshi, two well-known rivers, both originate in the protected area.

Acute mountain sickness (AMS), the mildest type of altitude sickness, is a detrimental consequence of high altitude produced by quick exposure to low oxygen levels at high elevation. People react to high altitudes in a variety of ways. Headaches, vomiting, exhaustion, disorientation, insomnia, and dizziness are some of the symptoms. High altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) with shortness of breath or high altitude cerebral edema (HACE) with disorientation can develop from acute mountain sickness. Long-term exposure to high altitudes can cause chronic mountain sickness.
The greatest time to go is during the spring season, when you may enjoy the pleasures of snowfall, snow play, and stunning mountain ranges.
