Nagarkot

One of the larger cities in the Kathmandu Valley, Nagarkot is located 18 miles (30 kilometers) northeast of the city of Kathmandu. A tiny town with a population of less than 5,000, Nagarkot is known for its excellent location, which offers commanding views of the nearby valley and mountains; indeed, on a crystal-clear day, it is even possible to see the summit of Everest from here. In addition, the inhabitants of Nagarkot lead lives little altered by the passing of time, with few distractions in this idyllic, quaint village.

Guests should also note that Nagarkot is a good place to acclimate to the high altitude of the area; at 7,200 feet (2,195 meters), Nagarkot is a comfortable medium, neither too high nor too low.

EXPERIENCES

Horseback Riding

Ride through the countryside to nearby Tamang Monastery and make a rest stop for photos. You will be able to see a panoramic view of Lantang, Kerung, Ganesh Himal and Sanjen Himal ranges, as well as the nearby Parvatikunda Lake.

Mount Everest at Dawn

Rise at dawn to see the sunrise over Himalayas. Few people in the world will be able to see the peak of Mount Everest at dawn, and Nagarkot is the only point in the Kathmandu Valley where such a vista is possible.

Mountain Biking

Bike to a series of interesting villages near Nagarkot. For those who wish to eschew the bikes and prefer to walk, it’s about two hours – all downhill.
