Nagarkot from Kathmandu

Nagarkot is a beautiful destination which is around 32 km away from Kathmandu Valley.

The walkthrough paddies harvest, rice plants and potato farm and the sound of the sheaf of rice and paddy will make your hike peaceful. Also, this will create an urge for you to try the local food at least once. The hike is one of the shortest walks. To be honest, this trek might even be the shortest trek with so much to offer for its observer/ travelers.

Why Nagarkot?

The place is also very rich in culture and tradition. One of the biggest reasons why you should hike to the top rather than taking a ride is because you can observe the culture of Nagarkot. The Newari people residing in this place follows the tradition and culture very strictly. So you can see the exact old houses, the road pavements, and culture that has been passed on from generations. Also, you will get the opportunity to observe one of the UNESCO world heritage enlisted sites, Changu Narayan during your trek.  The fine architecture from the 5th Century will definitely surprise you.

You will reach the destination before sunset time. Therefore, you can rest and have your lunch while viewing the merry sunset bidding the day goodbye. If you wish to stay another day you can experience the sunrise view too else we will take a ride back to your hotel.

Other Attractions

Did we mention the bird watching and the flora and fauna while your way to trek?
