Be a green panther and you will know, how immeasurable it feels to be in the lap of nature. Eyes, when you stand, sticks in the scenic beauty of the green woods. And, when you lie upon on the grasslands, the whole sky shows its shows. Gundu, in some way, is the best place to enjoy that scenario in Bhaktapur. Geographically, the place lies in the southern arena of Bhaktapur district, beyond the jungle of Suryabinayak.
However, it also covers a little portion of the jungle of Suryabinayak, since it is a part of Suryabinayak Municipality. With that, this place is all congested with hills and grasslands. People over there grow Makhamali flowers in their fields rather than other grains. It is like their major business exemplar. And, they are very satisfied with it too. The scene must be more pleasuring, hanging garlands of Makhamali, all over in the houses of local people. Right before the Tihar festival. Besides, it has a lot of peaceful places, green environment and yes, hiking trails.

Since Gundu lies in the southern arena of the Bhaktapur city, Ranikot also posses in the south of Bhaktapur.
