You might be lucky to find a Taxi in Pokhara who will take you to Nagarkot but I am very doubtful, because the journey will take atleast 10hours maybe longer and the driver will need somewhere to stay for the night because most drivers don't drive in the night because there are no lights on the roads and they very dangerous to drive on. Not only that but your fare will be very expensive.

Your best bet is to take the usual bus to Kathmandu and stay the night and travel over to Nagarkot the next day and stay one night to watch the Sunset & Sunrise. much cheaper.

Nagarkot is pretty much sitting on the view point just stay at any of the hotels there and you will get great views.

Personally I think that Nagrokot is overrated as an Everest viewpoint – IF you have a really good sunrise then you can see it – just – a small dot amongst many other small dots on the distant horizon !!
However it is a nice place to go and spend a night to get away form the hustle, bustle and pollution of Kathmandu.
Best views of Everest without trekking are Definitely from the Buddha Air Mountain flight – Lots of pics on the things to do tips section on my Nepal pages that I took from the window !!
You could get a taxi direct from Pokhara, my gust would be around about $100 – there are several viewpoints along the ridge which the village is built on and the taxi can get you more or less right to it.
However, Don’t miss Sarangkot when you are in Pokhara – IMHO that is a much better viewpoint – OK No Everest but great views of the Annapurna’s and Fishtail :-)
Good Luck
Rob

Many apologies guys for my misleading query, My destination should have been Sarangkot NOT Nagarkot.Thank you anyway for your prompt replies.Signs off feeling foolish

Re: pokhara to nagarkot

No need to feel foolish – Names of places that you have not yet visited are often confusing !!
To your original question
Usually taxis drop you off at the Sarangkot village barrier – from there it is a Good 1/2 hours fast walking to the summit proper and the best viewpoint – so if you are heading up there for sunrise facto this in !!
A taxi should cost you around $10 / $15
Good Luck and Enjoy

Why take a taxi when you can walk around the beautiful blue lake then up the hill. When you get up in the morning for the Sunrise and see the Annapurna Range you can say to yourself that was worth the hike then you can walk back down back Pokhara again, far more enjoyable.

Travel Tips for Nagarkot

It is very windy in Nagarkot

by Jbeachd

Perched at an altitude of 7000 ft above sealevel, Nagarkot is in a windswept ridge which is very windy and cold in afternoon time. The winds blow fiercely in evening and it is noticeably cool than kathmandu which i really enjoyed it. It was freezing which is beyond description and can be experienced but can't be explanied easily. Do not forget to bring warm clothes like pullovers, sweaters, jackets or sleeping bags if you are staying in budget guesthouses. It is an experience that you won't easily forget. I was out there in the rooftop of Peaceful cottage & café du mont, Nagarkot Hillstation and it was freezing when i went out there. i was in the middle of nowhere and i could the international airport from the view point clearly with the lights sparkling down in the kathmandu valley like a diamond. Go and experience it . It is really worth a visit.

Funeral processions and pyres

by DocJules

Whilst in Nagarkot we toured the village, right into the valley bottom. The deeper you go the lower the cast of people. However, all seems understandable to the western eye, even if the entire family slepp in one room with the cattle!
It came as quite a shock when a long procession, banging drums and blowing horns, with women wailing, snaked its way up the hill to the grass outside the hotel. They carried a small bundle, the body of a still-born child, which was promptly cremated in front of us.
This was a profoundly moving experience, but something which made us appreciate how very different cultures are when you start to dig under the surface.

Nepal's Gurkhas

by Fariz

Nepal is home of Gurkhas, the legendary strain of locals known for their ferocious fighting skills and considered world's most feared soldiers. Their military skills are such renowned and esteemed that, to this day, the UK's Army contains a special brigade made entirely of Gurkhas, known as the British Gurkhas. This unit is sent into the toughest military actions and has seen action throughout the past and modern-day history of the UK's military engagements, from the landing in Sicily during World War 2 to the War in Persian Gulf to the UN-led British participation in peace-keeping operations in East Timor and Kosovo today. Wages and pensions paid to Gurkhas by the British government are now Nepal's third biggest source of foreign currency! To this day, the arms of the Gurkha soldiers comprise a famous Gurkha knife - a broad-bladed curved dagger, which the Gurkhas are known to be the best and most feared users of. I met this retired Gurkha soldier in Nagarkot where he was working as the security at the Club Himalaya Resort.

Pony trekking in the hills

by DocJules

Pony trekking allows you to get further into the valley, to see more of the remote settlements that day hiking doesn't usually let you reach.
Bhim owns 2 horses and he rents them out for 300 rupees per hour per horse. If you're not a competent rider he'll come with you. There are no helmets!
The saddles have no padding... be warned.

Peaceful cottage & café du mont

by Jbeachd

If you are visiting Nagarkot for the first time, i bet you won't find this resort easily. Tucked away in an offbeat location, this resort is located northwards from mahankal temple and is at the heart of nagarkot. You also won't find the hoarding boards easily , so, you have to refer to lonely planet guide book or rough guides map of nagarkot to pinpoint the location of the resort. Or simply call the resort number: 977-1-6680077 to pick up from the nagarkot bus stop
