Sailung Dolkha Nepal: Navel of Earth

Sailung Dolkha also prized as Sailung Dada is a beautiful landscape situated in the border of Dolkha district and Ramecchap district of Nepal. Sailung is a collection of more than a hundred small hillock (thumko). In the Nepali language 'Sai' means a hundred and 'lung' means hills, together it becomes hundred of hills. Sailung Danda is a tourist destination and also is famous for the religious aspect. Let me share my experience of Sailung hike in detail along with other person views on the place.

I heard about Sailung in my childhood from the song of Kunti Muktan called "Mathi Mathi Sailunge ma Chauri dulaune lai". When I discovered more about the Sailung, its beauty, and diversity I was so fascinated.

Where is Sailung?

Sailung is located on the border of Ramechhap and Dolkha district, Southwest from Charikot. Sailung is part of the Mahabharat Range and is situated at an altitude of about 3148m from sea level. If the weather is clear we can see different mountain ranges like Mount Everest, Ganesh Himal, and Machhapuchhre. Also, people said that when there was 18 Story Dharahara in Kathmandu you can view that from Shailung.
