Hilltops in Nepal are one of the best places for sightseeing in Nepal and many hills offer views of Tibetan peaks in the North and Indian plains in the south. Hike to Bethanchowk Narayan is also one of the hills and is now recently been regarded as one of the best & quick getaways from the Kathmandu valley. Bethanchowk hill, located on the southern side of the Kavre district, is believed to be the highest peak of the Mahabharat Range. This hill is located at an altitude of 3000m from sea level and offers a 360-degree view of the surrounding hills and Himalayan ranges in the north. On a clear day (no clouds), some places of Makwanpur and Janakpur can also be seen from the top of the hill.
At the top of the hill, there is a small temple named Narayanthan. This temple is crowded with devotees during the Fagu Purnima every year. The peak is usually known as Narayanthan rather than Bethanchowk. People also refer to it as the King of the Hills.
