Description

Village Dollu near city Pharping near Kathmandu district Hattiban.

If you want a day trip or longer escape out of Kathmandu, a fun hike up some Nepali single track and sport climbing on limestone crags this is the place for you... Hey you could even stay at a monastery and develop your meditative abilities so you can relax on some of the more run out clips.

There are 4 different cliffs, mostly single-pitch climbing routes, all bolted for sport climbing with bolted anchors at the top of each route.

Approach

You can reach reach Dollu from Kathmandu city in 1 hour taxi drive (~2000NPR), ask for "Pharping" and direct him into the right valley with the village Dollu. It is also possible to go there by public bus (100NPR). Go to the ringroad and then to Balkhu (27.684669, 85.297245), there are regular public buses to Pharping.

Where to stay

There are some possibilities at booking.com etc. A very idyllic stay (and general good escape from turbulent Kathmandu) is Solid Rock Lodge right below "Mati Crag" at the end of the valley. Per booking.com or cheaper with direct contact at their website or facebook.
