Located at a hillstation 29km north of Kathmandu Valley, Kakani( is about one and a half hour’s drive from the valley. Kakani is a great place to visit if you are interested in agriculture. There are several agriculture projects that are being carried out in this place. One of the primary agricultural activities that is being carried out in this place is the cultivation of strawberry. The people who work in this field has been delivering more than 200,000 kgs of strawberries every year. Another agricultural activity that is very popular here is the farming of Rainbow Trout.
As you drive and hike through Kakani, you will get to see a wonderful sight of farmers working in the green terraces and rice fields. Along with the green hills and terraces, the hike also rewards you with beautiful glimpses of mountains such as Lantang, Gaurishankar, Manaslu, Annapurna, and Ganesh Himal. Rhododendron are to be found in plenty in this region, which makes the place very beautiful. You will also get to see a spectacular estate of Nepal Army, which once used to be used by the British Embassy.
Your hike begins from a village named Kaule, which is at a distance of just 2 km from Rani Pauwa, which is where you will be driving to. From Kaule, you will hike towards Kakani height, which takes about 2 hours. You will hike through pine forests and will be greeted with occasional views of faraway mountains and wonderful view of Kathmandu Valley.
