Ideal for mountain bikers, Daman stands, delightfully pleased to welcome bird watchers, hikers, and stragglers as well. A hilltop 2322m above ocean level, with one of the most spectacular panorama to the north, east and west, Daman brags what is seemingly the most dynamic outlook toward the Himalayas in the entire of Nepal giving unobstructed views of the whole range from Dhaulagiri to Mt Everest. Scenes of dawn and dusk can be seen more clearly from Daman than from adjacent hills (like Nagarkot and Phulchowki) of Kathmandu Valley. Only four hours away from the capital, the hilltop hamlet overlooks the serene villages and presents an emotional calmness that refreshes one’s mind.
A blessing, Daman is an all season destination that lies on the outskirts of Kathmandu, providing an incredible opportunity to the individuals living in Kathmandu to watch its excellence and recreation. Additionally, amid winter, snowfall happens in the hills, augmenting the excellence of this nature-gifted village, thus being a major attraction to the people of Valley where snowfall is once in a blue moon.
