The journey of the day starts very early today to drive to Shivalaya to the east from Kathmandu. Seven hours on the mountain road will take you to Shivalaya, a village in Sindhupalchok district. The road journey brings a wonderful view of the country life style and some majestic Himalayan panorama. The highway stretch of about 210 km can feel a little longer as the driving is slow on the mountain road but it’s definitely worthy to take as it provides wonderfully scenic views and good glimpses of life style on the way.
