Our Nepal sunrise and sunset tour is significant than others. We just not travel to the hill stations and see the sun rising over the mountains but also the low flatlands where we can see until the tip of the sun vanishes behind the widely spread plains. We travel to dense forest when the sun sets behind the huge banyan tree and to the rivers from where the view is completely different.
