Daman (2,400m) offers the ultimate panoramic Himalayan views that attract hundreds of internal, regional, and foreign tourists. Daman is a five-hour drive on the Tribhuvan Highway between Kathmandu and the town of Hetauda. Located approx 80 km southwest of the Kathmandu valley, Daman offers the only unimpeded view of the entire Himalayan range – roughly 400 km of Himalayan panorama. The mountains seen from Daman cover many ranges - the world's highest peaks extending in one glittering area from the far west of Dhaulagiri to the far east of Mt. Everest. There is a view tower fitted with long-range telescopes. A walk around the surrounding area or lounging on one of the resorts here is just a different experience in itself. 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 a bicycle on hire which can take one on a very interesting downhill ride to Palung Village.
