The result of three years of planning, hardwork and dedication has resulted in the creation of an 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.

In addition to the 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 most visible by the fourth green.
