Destination of the Month

Daman Hill Station

Posted by: Admin | Date: May 25, 2010

Daman ViewDaman is a village in the central part of Nepal, located in the district of Makwanpur. It is a beautiful hill station near by Capital city Kathmandu. In the months of summer, people can enjoy travelling Daman. It is halfway between Kathmandu and Hetauda at 2320m. It has an unrestricted view of the Himalayas range stretching before it. The Everest Panorama Resort there has a helipad. A walk around the surrounding area or a lounging on the one of the resort here is just a different experience in itself. Rock climbing, cycling, hiking are few of the many activities possible here. There is couple of accommodation option for a comfortable stay. One or two local buses and several shared 4WD jeeps head in both directions between Chitwan and Kathmandu or Pokhara. It's the long way, but worth the effort if you have the time to spend a day or two in a quiet little village.

The only way to get around is by foot. There are lots of trails leading towards the villages around that offer an opportunity to connect with the local life. Similarly one of the resorts here has bicycle on hire which can take one on a very interesting downhill ride to Palung Village.

One of the hotels has a lookout tower with great views on clear mornings of the Himalayas, with one of the widest panoramas of any viewpoint.

A Tibetan monastery and temple is about a 30 minute walk through lovely mountain scenery. Get directions from one of the restaurants or guesthouses.

Daman has some of the most fantastic views of the Himalaya. It has a great view of the mountains from Dhaulagiri to Mt Everest. For the view of the Breath taking grandeur of the world's highest peaks extending in one glittering are from far-east of Sagarmatha (Mt. Everest) there is no better place than Daman. There is a view tower fitted with long range telescopes. Daman can be reached in four hours from Kathmandu because of mountain highway.
 
Daman by car is about three hours from Kathmandu and four hours from Hetauda. It makes a nice day trip from Kathmandu to come here by car for the day.
