Kakani- is another good spot near Kathmandu for a view of the mountain scenery. In fact, Kakani offers a completely different perspective of the mountain peaks. From Kakani one can see the mountain landscape of Central and Western Nepal, a vast collection of majestic peaks stretching from the Ganesh Himal to the peaks of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. One of the best known peaks of the Annapurna range is the Machhapuchhare mountain, which the Nepalese call the Fish Tail mountain, because of its twin peaks giving the mountain an appearance of a fishtail. Kakani is unique in the sense that there is an unusually perfect blending of the imposing mountain scenery with the more sylvan environment of the lower valley. Tibetan Refugee Camp (Tibetan Handicraft Centre) is really a mini village on the outskirts of Patan. Here one is treated to the rare phenomenon of seeing ancient Tibetan crafts coming to life, with peasants hand-weaving carpets, and crafting ivory ornaments and other items that are distinctly Tibetan. A souvenir hunter can also pick up several authentic Tibetan objects such as prayer wheels of wood, ivory, silver or bronze, belt buckles, miniature thunderbolts, water vessels, charm boxes, prayer beads, jewellery and musical instruments, including long temple-horns, hand-made of beaten copper. Kirtipur- is an ancient hilltop settlement about 6 kms. Southwest of Kathmandu city centre. It was one of the earliest fortifications in the Kathmandu Valley. People here still wear traditional costumes throughout the year. Ancient buildings and temple edifices, shrines and dwellings provide an apt backdrop to the tradition-bound residents of Kirtipur. Until its fall to the invading Gorkha armies, it was an autonomous principality. There are several small units of handloom cloth and other small scale paper crafts factories. The Tribhuvan University offers modern courses of study alongwith some classical Nepali teachings. Dakshinkali- The Dakshinkali Temple is a shrine in the Kathmandu Valley dedicated to the Goddess Kali (Durga) where blood (animal) sacrifices are still made every Tuesday and Saturday morning to Kali, one of the major Mother Goddess deities of the Hindu faith. The temple is situated about 25 kms. south of the city centre, in a gorge amidst lush vegetation and foliage. King Pratap Malla is credited with the construction of this temple. Lumbini: 232 km/145 miles away from Kathmandu, Lumbini is the birth place of Lord Buddha. The broken Ashoka Pillar, remnants of the old monastery, images of Buddha's mother Maya Devi are still preserved here. Lumbini can be reached by road from Kathmandu via Pokhara or Royal Chitwan National Park or by air till Bhairawa and then by road. Kapilvastu- is 30 km/18 miles northwest of Lumbini- the birthplace of Lord Buddha. This is the place where Lord Buddha spent his 29 years. Today it is a forest but the recent archaeological excavation has brought the old Royal Palace to surface. The road to Kapilvastu is a rough dirt track and can be reached only by four wheel drive vehicles. Lumbini- Once upon a time Lumbini was a horticultural spot where people of Kapilvastu and Devdoha relaxed and got in tune with nature. Amid the cool shadow of thick sal trees, the touch of the flowing breeze, and the fragrance of flowers and fruits, people used to live with a peaceful mind. That was 2,500 years back when people came to the Lumbini garden. This is the place where Bodhisatwa Siddhartha Gautam (Lord Buddha) put his first step on earth. Lumbini is situated in the Terai, the south-western region of Nepal. Sojourners, who are in search of peace, brotherhood, unity of entire humanity, kindness and real meaning of life, visit Lumbini to pay homage to the great master Buddha. According to Buddhist and Hindu philosophy, one who does not get en-lightenment.
