If you want to see the Himalayan mountains in all their glory, Nagarkot is the place to be! This tiny village burrowed in the lap of the towering peaks is a part of Nepal's Bhaktapur district. Perched at the edge of Kathmandu Valley, Nagarkot gives you one of the widest panoramas of the Himalayan ranges - you can spot 8 out of the 13 Himalayan ranges from the comfort of your hotel. The Annapurna, Manaslu, Langtang, Jugal, Everest, Numbur, Ganesh Himal and the Rolwaling ranges can be seen from Nagarkot on a clear day - can the scene get any more postcard-perfect than this!?
Located at a mere 28-kilometre drive away from Kathmandu, Nagarkot offers one of the best views of the Himalayas in the entire region. An erstwhile summer retreat of Nepali, Indian and British royalty, this village rose to fame after tourists thronged the area in recent years. We don't blame them - the view is spectacularly breathtaking. If you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu, you can find solace here. The idyllic village sits serenely in the midst of nature - the only sounds you can hear are the birds chirping and the breeze whistling through the pines. This is an ideal place to relax, unwind, refresh and rejuvenate. At a whooping altitude of 7000 feet (2000 metres), Nagarkot is the perfect vantage point to gaze at the Himalayas in all its glory. One great advantage of this viewpoint is that it is very close to the capital, which means that you can easily access Nagarkot without spending too much time and money on travel. Accommodation is also cheap here, as is the food - Nagarkot clearly wins on all fronts!
