This place offers very nice Himalayan views. Not very much crowded makes this place very attractive.

I went to Nagarjung Hill entering from Budhanilkantha. Reaching at Nagarjun Hill after 4 hours uphill walking is magnificent. cool weather at hot season and view panoramic mountain from 2,900 miter Nagarjun Hill. Way back visit Nang-Kyi Gumba.

Be prepared for a long walk and enjoy fantastic views of snow covered peaks (need clear weather). Take a lunch and continue to the west side and walk around to the front again -this takes about 6 hours but it is worth it. You must...More
