Images of Nuwakot

The ancient citadel of Nuwakot makes a peaceful , tranquil and beautiful stop .

It was in Nuwakot that the unifier of Nepal, Prithvi Narayan Shah, in 1769 established his Gorkha army. Nuwakot’s saddle-back position provides impressive defences in three directions sweeping down to river valleys far below while its imposing towers, seen from any approach, were enough to deter any force.
