They enjoyed the extraordinary sunrise and the mountain views from Nagarkot on October 21, 2012. Nagarkot is a popular hilltop lying 21 kilometers north from the Kathmandu valley. Next day the couple hit their roads for 6 hours to Pokhara, the next tourist town in Nepal. After the sightseeing around major tourist areas in Pokhara and boating at Fewa Lake they hiked to Peace Pagoda. Peace Pagoda lies on the top of the hill just above Fewa Lake. The views of Annapurna ranges and the Fishtail are amazing from here.

Chitwan National Park is the habitat of endangered species like one horned rhino. After the wildlife safari the couple moved back to Kathmandu.
