Sailung is a beautiful region situated on the border of the Dolakha and Ramechhap districts, with the majority of it falling within Dolakha. It earned its name, Sailung, due to the presence of approximately a hundred small hills scattered throughout the area, resembling heavenly meadows.
Basically, in the Tamang language, ‘Sai’ beautifully signifies ‘one hundred,’ and ‘Lung’ translates to ‘hillocks.’ ‘Sailung’ perfectly sums up this beautiful location where you can view 108 hillocks and 95% of the majestic Himalayan panorama with a perfect cultural blend. Once you ascend to a certain elevation, all you can see are these hillocks and the mountains encircle the landscape.
Sailung is also renowned as a Hindu religious site, as it is home to Sailungeshwor Mahadev, a manifestation of Lord Shiva who watches over Sailung while gazing at the Himalayas. It can be a splendid destination for those seeking a short getaway near the Kathmandu Valley, as it is very close to the city. When people talk about Dolakha, the places most frequently mentioned are Kalinchowk and Jiri. However, one will be amazed at the ultimate beauty of serene Sailung.
You can discover the premium domestic gem that Nepal has kept hidden for years, a destination that was often overshadowed by international travel but is now emerging as a first-choice haven for those seeking a truly enriching experience.
