Nagarkot Hiking Brief Insight

Nagarkot Hiking is an entertaining affair that stretches along the northeastern hill around the Kathmandu Valley. The hike also offers astonishing panoramic views of the sunset over snowcapped peaks in Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Gaurishankar, Dorje Lakpa, and even Everest ranges. The hike also includes a breathtaking view of the Kathmandu Valley along the hiking trail through Newar settlements.  The 1-day hike to the Nagarkot hill assures you one of the best hiking experiences near to the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu valley.

The Nagarkot Hiking Trip begins from Kathmandu with a short drive to Sankhu. The drive heads northwest and heads to the outskirt of the Kathmandu Valley. Thereon, the trail begins its gradual ascent passing a number of small villages on the way.

You can observe a distinct variation between valley life and the lifestyle of the people along the hiking trail. The lifestyle of the people involves mainly following agricultural practices.

The trail offers interesting scenery and interesting stops on the way. Thereon, you make a final climb to the beautiful hilltop. At an elevation of 2175 m, Nagarkot is quiet, scenic and hosts a famous hilltop that offers a great view of the entire Kathmandu Valley.
