Nagarkot has a reputation as the top spot for enjoying Himalayan views from the comfort of your hotel's balcony.
Nagarkot is a village in central Nepal, at the rim of the Kathmandu Valley. Located at a mere 28-kilometre drive away from Kathmandu, Nagarkot offers one of the best views of the Himalayas in the entire region, including Mount Everest to the northeast, which are especially striking at sunrise and sunset. The surrounding scrubland is laced with trails and home to many butterflies. To the west is the ancient, pagoda-style Changunarayan Temple, dedicated to Vishnu and a Hindu pilgrimage site. This is an ideal place to relax, unwind, refresh and rejuvenate. At a whooping altitude of 7000 feet (2000 metres), Nagarkot is the perfect vantage point to gaze at the Himalayas in all its glory.
The best month to visit Nagarkot is from October to April so that you can have a clear view of the Himalayan Peaks. You will be awarded with clear mornings with the most stunning views of Himalayas at sunrise.
