Nagarkot tour is 32 kilometers east of Kathmandu valley, on a hilltop at an elevation of 2175 meters above sea level. It is one of the most beautiful scenic sites in Nepal's countryside. The excursion to Nagarkot, the valley's second highest peak, is known for its sunrise and sunset views of the Himalayas. Highlights for 2022 and 2023 are us. Nagarkot is bordered by densely forested slopes of pine trees and gives beautiful views of the Langtang ranges, Dorje Lakpa, Manaslu range, Ganesh Himal, and Gaurishankar. This is a beautiful getaway into nature, away from the bustling and concrete jungle of the capital city, where only the wind and the rustling sound of leaves disturb you.
