- Crested with a number of peaks of different altitudes, the Ganesh Himal is seen in all its grandeur from Kakani, North-West of Kathmandu. This serene range is named after its highest peak (7406 metre) which distantly resembles the image of the Elephant-God, Ganesh.
- Rupse, as its name suggests, is one of the beautiful waterfalls in Nepal. Located near the village Ghasa, this impressive three stage cataract is one of the attraction of Mustang, West Nepal.
- Kumari, the living Goddess, receives homage and worship from the Hindus and Buddhists alike. Known as Kumari Ghar her abode in Kathmandu is a house of Pagoda-style famous for its exquisite wood-carvings. She is taken round the city every year in a decorated chariot three times during the festival of Indrajatra.
