Nagarkot in the northern and eastern fringe of Nepal, famous for its Himalayan views and observing these spectacular peaks at sunrise are a magnificent sight to behold. Many visitors wish upon their arrival that they would have planned for more than one day in this area. Nagarkot is surrounded by thickly forested hills of pine trees which give you an idyllic scene.
It is a comfortable resort high on the northern fringe of the Kathmandu valley and offers outstanding views of Himalayas, breathtaking mountain scenery and the most impressive views of sunrise and sunset.
Nagarkot is famous for providing one of the broadest views of the Himalayas in the Kathmandu valley (8 Himalayan ranges of Nepal out of 13 from here). The view gives you a cross section of these spectacular mountain ranges from Dhaulagiri in the west to Kanchenjunga in the east (8586 m). On a clear day, you can see Mt Everest (8848 m) you can also see Manaslu (8463 m), Ganesh Himal (7111m), Langtang (7246m), The Annapurna range, Manaslu range (8156 m), Ganesh Himal range(7406m), Jugal range, Rolwaling range, Dorje Lhakpa Himal (6966 m) also views of the Kathmandu valley and Shivapuri National Park. This will be the best trip I can recommend after the Annapurna adventure.
