Daman दामन (Nepali: दामन) is a small village, marketplace, and tourist attraction in Thaha Municipality, Makwanpur District, central Nepal. It lies on the Tribhuvan Highway, about 100 kilometres (62 mi) southwest of Kathmandu (about halfway to Hetauda) at an elevation of 2,320 metres (7,610 ft).

Daman has among the greatest views of the Himalayas, extending on a good day from Dhaulagiri in the west to Mount Everest in the east.[1]

The village also contains the Everest Panorama Resort, which includes a helipad. Since the village lies on the outskirts of Kathmandu, it provides a great opportunity for the people residing in Kathmandu to observe its beauty and use it for means of recreation. Also, during winter, snowfall occurs in the hills, augmenting the beauty of the village.
