You can see the splendid mountain views from Dhulikhel, Nagarkot or Chaplati viewpoint, and you can visit the valley villages of Rabi-Opi, or the waterfall at Kashi Banghan . There are plenty of facilities in Banepa for shopping, and there is a bus travelling straight to Pokhara, without the need to stay in an expensive Kathmandu hotel.
