Nagarkot is a well-known hill station located 32 kilometers east of Kathmandu at an elevation of roughly 2100 meters above sea level. Driving to Nagarkot is a unique experience because it takes you through a wonderful pine forest of hills, which is a completely different experience just a few kilometers outside of Kathmandu city. The fact that 8 of Nepal’s 13 Himalayan ranges can be seen from here is the place’s main attraction.
It is one of the best sites to watch the sunrise, sunset, and take in the view of the mountains. Because of the breathtaking vistas of the Himalayan Mountains, it is the top tourist attraction. Nagarkot is also known as the Kathmandu Valley’s ideal picnic destination. From Nagarkot, you can see the Khumbu ranges, Langtang rages, Manaslu, Dorje Lakpa, and Mt Everest, among other mountains.
The road to Nagarkot passes through Bhaktapur, an ancient city. We’ll also have the opportunity to see this unusual and little city. Bhaktapur, also known as Khwopa in the past, has unique and antique architecture, with stories around the temple and places associated with previous Malla Kings. It was the largest of the Kathmandu valley’s three Newar kingdoms, and it served as the capital of Nepal from the second part of the 15th century to the end of the great ‘Malla Kingdom’.
