Kakani : Situated at an elevation of 6,500 feet above the sea-level and 25 kilometers away from Kathmandu City is hilly Kakani, famous for plenty of terraced fields. Short treks are made possible. The fabulous holiday area of Kakani features enchanting attractions ranging from the beautiful alpine scenery to the magnificent Himalayan panorama, especially of the Ganesh Himal.

Nagarkot : This is a lovely hill-station lying at an elevation of 7,133 feet above the sea-level and is not more than 32 kilometers direct east of Kathmandu City. It is a year round holiday resort rich in chlorophyll forestations. As an evergreen area, the pines appear spectacularly beautiful. The panorama of the major peaks belonging to the eastern Himalayas including Mt. Sagarmatha (Everest) can be viewed from here weather permitting. The resort stands best at sun-rise plus sun-set.

Dhulikhel : This is an ancient hill town which is known as 'Dhoukhyo' to the indigenous Newars. It is situated 30 kilometers east of Kathmandu City on the side of the Arniko Highway leading to the Tibetan border. From here one can own a complete panoramic view of the snowy flanks ranging from east to west.

Namo Buddha :Situated on a hill just above Panaouti valley is an authentic Buddhist shrine which the indigenous Newars call "Namra Bhagwan." The name of the religious hamlet itself is also Namra. It requires an easy cruise by automobile or a good trek to get here. Lord Buddha is auspiciously commemorated here by an ancient stone slab and a Stupa (Chaitya to the Nepalese Buddhists and Chhorten to the Tibetan Buddhists) with the angular eyes of the Enlightened One.

The pious forestation is believed to be the exact location where late King Mahasatwa (one of the past Buddha incarnations) sacrificed his own flesh for the sake of a dying tigress and her hungry cubs. The Stupa is highly worshipped by Nepalese Buddhists and Tibetan Buddhists. This serene wood proves to be an ideal spot for sentimental meditation.
