Tour Highlight

Visit the UNESCO world Heritage Sites in Kathmandu.
Sunrise and Sunset View of Mt Everest and Other Himalayas from Nagarkot.

If you ask anyone in the tourism sector what they would recommend a first time visitor to Kathmandu they are definitely going to come up with the answer, ‘Go for Nagarkot tour,’ which is not surprising as Nagarkot (2175 m) is probably the best place near Kathmandu valley (1400 m) that can be reached easily for a 180 degree panoramic view of the Himalayas. It lies 32 km east of Kathmandu which is located in Bhaktapur district.

Though the valley has three districts comprising Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur, equally with three municipalities with similar names, they have increasingly been seen as one big city because the urbanization that has spread to the point where all three municipalities have touched each other and look like one big city. So, many have opted to call it simply as Kathmandu just to keep things straight.

Beside Kathmandu, Nagarkot didn’t take too much time to be discovered by tourism industry as the place soon had some of the best lodges and hotels catering to tourists in a short span of time. Now it is one of the chief attractions in the valley and falls under a must see site in the itinerary of many tourists. Apart from being the best place for viewing above 8000 meter mountains like Annapurnas and Manaslu in the west to Everest in the east, one can also see other tall mountains like Ganesh

Tour itinerary

Day 1

Kathmandu Sightseeing and Drive to Nagarkot.- 5, 6 Hour

Though the tour may last just two days, they are filled with visits to many interesting places in and around Kathmandu valley. The first day obviously will be the day when you will see many historically and religiously significant places in the valley boasting of pagoda and shikhara architecture laden with rich hand crafted designs that took many years of intense craftsmanship of hundreds of artisans and craftsmen.You will first visit Swayambhunath which is a Buddhist shrine perched on the hill in the western part of the valley. The place is also known as a ‘Monkey Temple’ in the tourist circle as the forest surrounding the hill has hundreds of monkeys. Next on your stop will be Kathmandu and Patan Durbar Square which is actually the old Palace of the former rulers of the valley before the Shah dynasty took over Nepal some three hundred years before. Then you head straight to Nagarkot for your overnight stay for the ultimate prize of the tour—early morning sunrise over the Himalayas the next day. Hotel and Breakfast

Day 2

Himalaya Sunrise view & Bhaktpur / Kathmandu City Tour.– 06 hrs.

After seeing the sunrise over the mountains you will head to Bhaktapur which is one of the three sister cities of Kathmandu valley that is also the most preserved among the three. It is the living museum as people still keep to their tradition and way of life that may not be found in other two cities. On the return journey one will visit Pashupatinath which is one of the most revered Hindu temples in the world and Baudhanath which like Swayambhunath is a Budhist shrine, similar in designs, which is also called a stupa.
