Budhaniklakntha Temple Tour
It was a great day tour. We hiked to the Shivapuri Peak at 2,732m via a beautiful forested trail. Kathmandu is blessed with natural teasure. You can literally enjoy Himalayan views from the hill station around this city. In this tour, I enjoyed beautiful views of the mountains from Shivapuri peak. Must do short adventure in Kahtmandu.
