It's about 1hour driving from Kathmandu. Roads are being laid out, but manageable, little bit dusty. It's great experience to watch sun Rise and Sunset. Very quiet place, lovely atmosphere. Worth for two days visit

Our tour was with Shishir. He was fantastic! Very knowledgable, we learnt so much about Nepal and the religions visiting various temples along the hike. Shishir introduces us to local people who we stopped and had drinks with to learn more about life in Nepal. Fantastic views
