One of the best day trips from Kathmandu is Nagarkot. This mountain village is around an hour’s drive from Kathmandu, up a winding and narrow mountain road only accessible by bus or car. The town is terrific with panoramic views. On a bright day you can even catch a distant glimpse of Mt Everest and the village has become famous for its sunrises. There are also some good day hikes from Nagarkot. This is one of my favorite villages in Nepal and worth a day trip or weekend getaway.
Nagarkot means top of the hill. which is one of the tourist and beautiful travel spot of kathmandu valley. we can see long Himalayan range from this place. Nagarkot is also famous for sunrise, sunset and hiking tours.
Why did you decide to come to Nepal ? Was it to see the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas ? How about ancient temples and palaces ? Well, all of this is Nepal and more. This quick Nagarkot trip offers an opportunity to get a taste of what Nepal has to offer.
Just an hour's drive from Kathmandu International Airport and a world away from the chaos of the Nepalese capital. One of several key vantage points for enjoying sweeping views of the majestic Himalayas - on a clear day you can see the peak of Mt. Everest too. In recent years the village has developed around tourism, with plenty of cheap and cheerful places to stay, as well as Club Himalaya - the only luxury option in town. Many come here for the trekking. On a clear day (best time to visit, incidentally is January) the sunrises and sunsets are absolutely spectacular. Two tips: 1) If travelling here from Kathmandu International Airport, avoid the pre-paid taxi counters in the arrivals hall which will want to charge you an enhanced rate just for tourists; grab a cab from one of the touts outside for NPR 2,000-2,500. 2) For the return journey, ask around in the village and you should find someone willing to take you for around NPR 2,000-2,200. Try and bargain on stopping off at Bhaktapur on the way back - factoring in around NPR 400 for each hour of waiting time.
