      Nagarkot Tour and Hike

      My husband and I recently enjoyed a sunrise viewing of the Himalayas from Nagarkot, a village in the hills surrounding the Kathmandu Valley. After setting off pre-dawn from Kathmandu with our guide Birodh Burlakoti from Outfitter Nepal.

      We arrived at Nagarkot after a drive of an hour or so. After a warming cup of Nepali coffee we ascended to the viewing area and were rewarded with spectacular views of the Himalayas.

      Mount Everest was clearly visible. After breakfast at a nearby hotel we hiked for several hours through villages, observing the local people going about their daily activities.

      Our hike concluded at the ancient Changunarayan temple.

      Thanks to Birodh for sharing your knowledge of local culture and flora and for your great company.
