Referred to as the Postcard of the Himalayas, Nagarkot, a small hamlet hidden inside the cherishable mountain landscapes is a part of the Bhaktapur District. The most exhilarating panoramic views of Himalayas is available from this terrain. One can view Manaslu, Langtang, Everest, Annapurna, Jugal, Ganesh Himal, Rolwaling Ranges, and Numbur ranges from this place.
Just under 30 km from Kathmandu, Nagarkot is the past summer retreat of Indian and Nepali royalties. Tourism helped Nagarkot grow in unison with Kathamandu. If people feel the city life to be boring and busy, they can choose Nagarkot for seeking solace. A spectacular village filled with chirpings of birds and the rustling sound of twigs and leaves of the pine trees. A place to refresh, unwind one’s soul and catch up with the country's life. Nagarkot is at a height of 7000 feet from where the Himalayas look even more stunning and breathtaking.
Nagarkot is easily accessible too since travel time can be reduced due to its proximity to the Himalayas. The Tamang Village Walk, presence of mountain animals, Nagarkot Buddha Peace Park with the golden Buddha Statue, photogenic spots for adventure photographers, UNESCO Wolrd Heritage Site, Changu Narayan Temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu for history fanatics make Nagarkot a succulent land. The area was once the fort of the Kathmandu Valley which was used for tracking down activities of enemy empires. Later, it became a summer retreat spot for the Royal Family.
