Kathmandu is a valley with lovely green hills all around and the Himalayan peaks standing behind them.On a clear day, you can see them from the city itself.
A 1.5 hr drive from Kathmandu will take us to Nagarkot where you can see the green hills and the Himalayan panorama all around. The sunsets and the sunrise on the Himalayas is superbly beautiful and short walks along the forested ridge is also enjoyable.
