Trip Introduction: 

Nagarkot is a scenic view point located 32 kilometers east from center Kathmandu. It is a hill station with a great surrounding view of Himalayas. Thus many people explore the place to be refreshed from the crowd of the city. There are mainly two options, either go directly by drive or go through a 3/4 hours hike through beautiful landscapes, green hills and charming villages which starts from Bhaktapur. Nagarkot Hill is located at 2,195m/7,200ft above from sea level offers clear view of Langtang Himalayan Range including Mt. Dorje Lakpa as well as great view of entire Kathmandu Valley. The place is also advertised as a view point over Mt. Everest 8,848m but in fact it is not guaranteed, if the weather is clear we can see only the direction (too far) of the Mt. Everest.

Kathmandu to Nagarkot day Hike is a very popular hiking route of Nepal since it is a short walk and gives natural feel as same as trekking over any remote hills of Nepal. Our hike actually starts after a short drive from Kathmandu to Changu Narayan Temple (oldest Hindu temple and also a world heritage site of UNESCO in Kathmandu). We follow gradual ascend through pine forest and green hills until we reach at Telkot. Again, we follow continuous ascend by following a Hindu temple, Tamang cultural village, terraces farmland all the way to Nagarkot. Once we reach and explore the views of surrounding from Nagarkot either we can drive back to Kathmandu same day or overnight stay over there for tantalizing sunrise view over the Himalayas in next morning, there is several sophisticated hotel and resorts available.
