Ligligkot which falls under Palungtar municipality has historical significance as well as a destination  for tourism. The place is situated 1,437 m above sea level and can be reached walking from the district headquarter Gorkha bazar (4 to 5 hours). Ligligkot is the place where king Drabya Shah has his palace; he is said to have first initiated Nepal’s unification process. There was a traditional  practice that the person who would win the race from Chepeghat, the confluence of the Marsyandi  and Chepe rivers to the Ligligkot would be selected as the Ghale king. Although no one is crowned king, the 13 km race from Chepeghat to Ligligkot is held annually even today. As a mark of national pride, there is a 40 feet Nepal’s flag that flutters on Liglikot’s hilltop.
