In Nuwakot, at an elevation of 900 metres, the ancient citadel stands as if untouched by changing times, amid the quaint Nuwakot Bazaar. While the interior of the durbar suffered some damage during the recent earthquake on April 25, 2015, the buildings are still intact and a tour of the premises is still possible. Reconstruction efforts are underway to conserve the heritage site that played a pivotal role in shaping the history of modern Nepal. The durbar is still an undiscovered treasure, despite its historical and cultural significance. The seven-storey palace-fortress was built during the reign of Prithvi Narayan Shah in the 18th century. It shows little evidence of the attacks by Malla and later Chinese forces.

Ford Nepal conducts expeditions every year as a part of its adventure event. Previously, Ford Nepal has held successful events such as Drive to Manang, Drive to Lomanthang and Mustang Adventures which are benchmarks for adventure events in Nepal. Nepal is a country with diverse terrain and landscapes and the most preferable destination for international tourists.
