Just an hour's drive from Kathmandu International Airport and a world away from the chaos of the Nepalese capital. One of several key vantage points for enjoying sweeping views of the majestic Himalayas - on a clear day you can see the peak of Mt. Everest too. In recent years the village has developed around tourism, with plenty of cheap and cheerful places to stay, as well as Club Himalaya - the only luxury option in town. Many come here for the trekking. On a clear day (best time to visit, incidentally is January) the sunrises and sunsets are absolutely spectacular.
Two tips: 1) If travelling here from Kathmandu International Airport, avoid the pre-paid taxi counters in the arrivals hall which will want to charge you an enhanced rate just for tourists; grab a cab from one of the touts outside for NPR 2,000-2,500. 2) For the return journey, ask around in the village and you should find someone willing to take you for around NPR 2,000-2,200. Try and bargain on stopping off at Bhaktapur on the way back - factoring in around NPR 400 for each hour of waiting time.

A little village up on a hillside in the Kathmandu Valley about an hour or two from Kathmandu. Splendid views from here when the weather is clear. I visited during the rainy season in the summer, and although there was a lot of fog and clouds it did clear up a bit so that I could see the terraced hillsides. Although it never cleared enough to see Everest, far to the east. Anyhow, there is nice walking through the countryside in nearly all directions from Nagarkot.

Beautiful small town a couple hours drive from Kathmandu. Popular resort town, with spectacular views of the Kathmandu Valley, and when clear of the peaks of the Himalayan mountains. Sunsets and Sunrises are spectacular. There isn't a lot of things to do in terms of nightlife and such, but if you are looking for nice hikes, and where to relax with quiet mountain views Nagarkot is an excellent optionRecommended for:Outdoor Enthusiasts
