Ghyampe Danda, located at Bhaktapur district, is a beautiful place to explore. Though it is not very popular route, it can be reached via short hike or even via road. For the nature lovers, it is a perfect place to enjoy the serenity of the forest located around. On the way to Ghyampe Danda, one can also visit Pilot Baba Aashram and Somnath Temple. The aashram also gives a view of all three major cities of the valley. Located at hill top, the white aashram has attracted many visitors. Pilot Baba was a great sage, who spent a great amount of his life in Nepal and said to have received grace from Baba Gorakhnath himself. Suryabinayak, one of the most important Ganesh shrines among four, can be the starting point for the hike to Ghyampe Danda. Many people visit the temple, especially on Tuesday to worship and pray Lord Ganesha. The artistic temple was built in the Lichhavi era by Vishnu Dev Barma, some 1500 years ago.
