About Himalayan Horizon-Dhulikhel
Himalayan Horizon is a special retreat, in the heart of the countryside away from the well-trodden tourist trails, yet providing high standard of comfort and the indulgence of luxury.
From the hotel you can watch the whole long play of sunrise bathing the mountains rose and gold. You can take morning tea or lunch in the courtyard, sip cocktails as the sunsets over the valleys and dine in the Terrace Garden Restaurants as the mountains shine silver in the moonlight.
Dhulikhel is a typical Newari town with nearby Tamang villages. It is situated 30 km. east of Kathmandu on the side of Arniko Highway on the way towards Tibet. Dhulikhel is popular for its natural beauty and ancient traditions. The Himalayan ranges from the twin crest of Mt. Langtang in the west to the Mt. Everest in the east can be clearly viewed in a clear day. Dhulikhel is ideal for snow-capped peaks, sunrise, sunset and it is different from any other place. One can say Dhulikhel is where the peaks speak. KNOW MORE ABOUT DHULIKHEL ?
