  • Quick getaway from the city, you can either way through the forward or go on a mountain cycle. The starting point is few kilometer from budhanilkantha temple. The trail is one of the easy trekking routes near Kathmandu and on a clear day you can see the Himalayas once you have crossed over to the other side of the mountain.
  • Nearest and one of the younger National park of Nepal from a crowded Kathmandu valley. Feel very natural with a bird eye view of Kathmandu valley. Anyone who wishes to do a short one day hiking this place and nearby route can be a best option. There are several places to eat local foods and drinks.
