“Nagarkot” hill station as a fort for Tibet and Nepal in the past is located 32 km east
of the capital Kathmandu and just 1 hour 15 minutes drive from the airport.
Nagarkot is an old Tamang village at the walking trail en route to the Tibetan plateau in the past. Today it is not only an ideal place to see sunrise and  sunset, it is also a good place to see the local life style of old Tamang culture. There are also nice hikes in and around Nagarkot with spectacular views of Himalayas and beautiful nature. (Sankhu, Kattike, Changu Narayan etc.)

We highly recommend to come to Nagarkot after trekking to relax and before trekking to adjust to the height and to enjoy nature in fresh and clean air escaping from polluted and noisy Kathmandu.

How to get there

By bus: Bus from Kathmandu bus park to Bhaktapur (ask for Kamal Binayak bus stop). From there take the bus to Nagarkot market.

By taxi:  Normally taxis are very small, running fast and not very comfortable.
By tourist car:  We highly recommend to use tourist cars which are private, well kept and safe.

On your request we can arrange a taxi, a car or a van for you.

Life is beautiful, keep smiling!
