Experience the Breathtaking Nagarkot Day Hiking Adventure in Nepal

If you’re seeking a quick and enchanting way to catch a glimpse of Mount Everest from Kathmandu, our Nagarkot Day Hiking adventure is the perfect choice. Situated at an elevation of 2,195m, Nagarkot is a serene hilltop just 32km away from Kathmandu. It offers a tranquil escape with stunning mountain views and an opportunity to immerse yourself in the authentic village life of the Himalayan foothills. The Nagarkot hiking trail, though easy, promises an exhilarating experience.

The adventure begins with a scenic 1.5-hour drive from Kathmandu to Nagarkot. This option is ideal for those with limited time or who prefer a more relaxed trek instead of a high-altitude expedition. From Nagarkot, you’ll be treated to a panoramic view of the Himalayas, ranging from the majestic Dhaulagiri in the west to the iconic Mount Everest in the east. Don’t forget to bring binoculars for an enhanced view of Everest! Throughout the day, you’ll be far away from the bustling noise of Kathmandu, fully immersed in the unhurried lifestyle of the villagers.

Many travelers wonder if it’s possible to see Mount Everest from Kathmandu. The answer is a resounding yes! There are two ways to witness this natural wonder:

Everest View Flight: Experience the thrill of a lifetime with a 1-hour Everest View Flight from Kathmandu’s domestic airport. This unforgettable aerial journey allows you to marvel at the world’s highest mountains in just one hour.

During your Nagarkot Day Hike, you’ll embark on a short drive followed by a few hours of hiking, which will reveal the stark contrast between valley life and Kathmandu’s landscape. The traditional lifestyle of the villagers remains seemingly untouched by time. If you’d like to extend your trip and witness the sunrise and sunset over the Himalayas, we can arrange overnight accommodations. At the end of the Nagarkot hiking trail, you’ll visit Changunarayan Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the oldest temple in Kathmandu, dating back over 1,500 years. After exploring the temple, we’ll return to Kathmandu.

This day hike can be organized throughout the year, offering you a remarkable experience of local village life in Nepal. Even during winter, the views remain crisp, and there are fewer tourists, making it an ideal time to visit. The Nagarkot hike is suitable for all ages and serves as the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the capital city. Join us on our Nagarkot Hike and immerse yourself in village cultures while surrounded by the awe-inspiring vistas of the world’s highest mountains.
