I dont remember who has written the book " My Vally was green" , but this place surely is very very green throughout the year! Though we visited the place when monsoon was still on and the mountains were covered with mist & fog, but the few hours spent there will be remembered and cherished for long. My an hour long video of this place will...more

At the view point of Nagarkot remains the eartwhile king's retreat. This place has been converted into Club Himalaya ( a five star Resort & Spa). They have this sprawling restaurant called Restaurant Kantipur. Have a look at the place, what could be better than this! A true befitting place for a King! Since we visited in off season the menu was...more

Although described as the thamel-on-the-hill, there is not any vibrant nightlife in Nagarkot. Let me alert you, Nagarkot is a peaceful and idyllic hilltop venue for nature lovers and mountain viewers and there is not any discos and night clubs here in Nagarkot.All the resorts of Nagarkot get light off after 2100 pm which means no late night stay. Most of guests go to bed soon after their supper.
Most of the tourists who come here either for accilizimation before going to trekking or for relaxation after tiresome trekking in higher regions. It is only downside of Nagarkot.
Public Buses to Nagarkot are incredibly slow,incredibly cheap and tediously slow. The buses are really time-consuming and are always behind schedule. All in all, the buses to Nagarkot is always jam-packed with locals which can be really suffocating to any foreigners. It is a big no-no to any guests although it can a gruelling experience to you really want to experience the real Nepal. It will cost around Rs.18-20( Nepalese currency) to ride in local bus. Instead, i would recommend you to take a taxi from kathmandu which will cost around Rs. 1200-1500 to the resort of Peaceful cottage. Please call the resort directly for the trip.
The souvenir shop is verygood and it has many things, right from Alchohol to Chocolate. But the prices are a bit high. But I hope nobody would mind to pay little high amount if you are staying in a Five star place! Go ahead, Happy Shopping!
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...more
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...more

I must warn to go to Nagarkot before it falls too dark to Nagarkot because it is circuitous journey and there are twists and turns in every corner. It is very dark in Nagarkot as there is not any public light in the road. So, reach there before 7 pm in evening. Call firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
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
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.
Equipment: There are no helmets!
The saddles have no padding... be warned.
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.
Fondest memory: 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.
