King Prithivi Narayan Shah, the founder of `Shah Dynasty which symbolically rules Nepal today, unified Nepal into one kingdom. His Gorkha palace resided at the top of a hill so he could watchover all his subjects. Gorkha is also home to the famous Gurkhas, the legendary brave warriors who fought with knives against guns. Gurkhas were known as such good fighters that the British empire would often hire them to fight in the british army.
The area is full of natural beauty, panoramic views, rolling green hills, unspoilt jungle areas, lakes, caves, waterfalls and flora.
