The walk up was a good workout and the view was more than worth the effort. The town of Dhulikel is a nice place to visit for the afternoon. It's not set up for western tourists very well yet, but that's the appeal.

The walk up a long winding stair is nice, being among green hills, a path with flowers and shadow. Entry fee was 100 rupee. It is also nice to meet a lot of local students and people going up for picnics - at least during weekends - and chat with them. Up to the temple the view is supposed to be very nice, but it was full clouds when I was there. The temple in itself is a small shrine, over a massive concrete building; it probably carries a strong importance for the local Hindu but the construction is quite ugly. Also the surrounding area is unkempt and full of rubbish.

The 1000 steps walk to the Kali Temple is definitely worth it. It only takes about 30 minutes to the top and there are little shrines along the way. The steps are in great condition, but the tower at the Kali temple is still under construction. When it is complete, there will be even better views. However, the current lookout is still safe and has wonderful views.
The rock below the temple (my group nicknamed it "Insta rock") is perfect for taking photos on as well.
Definitely one of the best things to do in Dhulikhel.

This place is hugely polluted, very dusty and people are encroaching forest for business. It’s directly affecting animals living in those forest. If you go there you are just supporting dirty politics. Dhulikhel must change and think about environment, Flaura and Fauna at top most. Terrible!!

The road leading to this temple is really bad.
After the bumpy ride, all you are seeing is just a run down temple. I don't think it's worth the efforts.

Located on the highest point in this area, wonderful view, the temple is very old, the strucutre seems to be affected by the earthquakes, the kali temple is very much a place to pay a visit.

First walk through Dhulikhel bazaar, then climb the thousand steps and reach the top of this hill, where you will find the temple and a friendly Sadduh, who collects international paper money, but also accepts a Nepali banknote (only one to our surprise). You can’t climb the tower anymore because of damage after the 2015 earthquake. If you walk past the temple you will have a wonderful view of the mountains and you can also take a trick picture standing on or hanging from a rock that protrudes out of the grass.

Dust and poor maintain temple. Afternoon trail is safe. No road lamps after dark. You can reach by road or by 1000 stairs. Good for afternoon walks. Green. Wild flowers. Rest shades. But no toilet facility.

Easily figured out that visiting Kali Temple was the topmost to do list while in Dhulikhel. Was worried if the road leading to the top was spoilt by heavy rain during previous night, however, found that road was smooth till a kilometre to the top where I had to park my car at the edge of the road as the gravel road in the second half of the journey was too rough for my small car.

After 10 min of walking, we reached picnic spot from where range of Himalayas could be seen just away from tip of nose. From there, we decided to take a shortcut to Kali Temple which was adventurous mini trek for my small kids.

Kali Temple and View Tower in the Temple appeared to have damaged by the earthquake, without renovation till then which was reminder to the devastated earthquake in 2015.

As we climbed down the Kali Temple, we were advised by the local people to take the stairs (1000 steps made up with beautifully built and maintained stairs of rock). While my family took the stairs, I came back through the motorway to fetch my car to pick my family on the start of the stairs. My family found out that 1000 steps was very easy and pleasurable way to visit the Temple which crisscrosses motorway few times.

As we drove back we also saw elderly foreigners, who stayed in the same hotel, walking towards the Kali Temple. They appeared to have well informed that best way to visit Kali Temple was to follow the 1000 steps stair that was so beautifully laid and maintained.

The Kali Temple is located on the top of the hill and has a view tower for sweeping views of the mountains and rolling hills. The hike is more pleasant if you take the trail instead of the stairs. The place could be maintained more by the administration as the picnic groups leave trash behind. Not a major draw to go to Dhulikhel but worth the hike if you are already in the area.
