extraordinary course that is not only considered to be most unique in the
world but also challenging for all levels of golfers. Says major Ram,
"It's been my goal to preserve the natural environment so you can
experience the beautiful and inspiring Nepali scenery while at the same
time playing a challenging round of golf. The enchantment of this course
has to be experienced to be fully appreciated.

mountain and river canyon scenery, various forms of wildlife live on or
frequent the course. Foxes, monkeys, hawks, eagles are among the resident
fauna here. Wild flowers are evident in profusion, with the wild geraniums
