You will pass by several towns and cover a distance of about 12 kilometers before reaching Godawari. Upon arrival, you will have breakfast and then walk around the lower part of Phulchowki, where you can spot a few species of birds that are common in the valley. Don’t forget to bring binoculars and a camera to capture these species.
Then you continue your bird-watching tour by hiking towards the hilltop of Phulchowki. This is certainly a great place, famous for bird watching tours and some wild life, with an amazing panorama of mountain views from the top. Ranges of Annapurna, Manaslu, and Ganesh Himal towards the north-west, and the central Himalayan range of mountains of Langtang-Jugal Himal, which continues towards the north-east of Mt. Everest, extending to other high Himalayan peaks, are some of the mountain views that you can get from the top. Around this lovely forested area, about 90 species of birds have been recorded, including the endemic spring babbler as well as the Curia, Mountain Hawk Eagle, Rufous-bellied Pied Woodpeckers, and Black-throated Parrot Bill, to name a few. Have your lunch, and after an enjoyable and peaceful stop for a few hours admiring the mountains and surrounding landscape views and its serene environment, the drive leads to a descent at Godawari Botanical Garden. Here you can visit the Botanical Garden with exotic Himalayan plants, herbs, and flowers. Afterwards, drive back to Kathmandu, passing through a traditional village.
