If you continue uphill from Balaju on the road towards Trisuli Bazaar, you’ll reach the Nagarjun Forest Reserve , also known as the Rani Ban (Queen’s Forest). This protected forest is one of the last undamaged areas of woodland in the valley, providing a home for pheasants, deer and monkeys. It’s a popular picnic spot, but female visitors are banned from walking here alone after two foreign tourists were murdered in the reserve in 2005.
