This trek will offer you panoramic views of Himalayas as well a romantic trek along the rolling green hills. You can spend plentiful time amidst the natural surroundings of Nagarkot. In the clear weather the Himalayan range, stretching from Dhaulagiri in the west all the way past Everest to Kanchenjunga in the east, can be easily viewed from this place. Early sunrise view at Nagarkot is the most fascinating and mesmerising experience.


The village of Nagarkot is on the edge of the valley and offers superb views of the mountains as well as Kathmandu valley. In addition to this, the trail from Nagarkot to Changunarayan is filled with cultural experiences.


Other attraction of this trek is the visit to Sankhu, Chanug Narayan and Bhaktapur. Bhaktapur houses the 15th century palace of 55 windows, durbar square and many other historic monuments and cultural heritages and it is a world heritage site. .

    Short Trek to Nagarkot

    Just a very short trek to Nagarkot and back. The view was perfect as well as the Hotel we stayed in.
    The service of our guide and porter was flow less. 
    Thank you once again.
