Nagarkot is a village in central Nepal, at the rim of the Kathmandu Valley. Located at a mere 28-kilometer drive away from Kathmandu, Nagarkot offers one of the best views of the Himalayas in the entire region, including Mount Everest to the northeast, which are especially striking at sunrise and sunset. The surrounding scrubland is laced with trails and is home to many butterflies. To the west is the ancient, pagoda-style Changunarayan Temple, dedicated to Vishnu and a Hindu pilgrimage site. This is an ideal place to relax, unwind, refresh, and rejuvenate. At a whopping altitude of 7000 feet (2000 meters), Nagarkot is the perfect vantage point to gaze at the Himalayas in all its glory.
