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.

I like the forest aspect so close to Kathmandu... Don't like that it is costing money just to walk around and feels a little bit 'military' to me. However over all it is quite OK. Not many hiking places close to Kathmandu City so that...More
