With its crisp mountain air and impressive hillside panoramas, Nagarkot is one of Nepal’s most picturesque hill resorts. During this unique and immersive tour, you’ll be treated to early morning views of the famous sunrise panorama over the Himalayan range, followed by a scenic and invigorating hike to the temple of Chagunarayan.
The views from Nagarkot are unforgettable at all times of day, but dawn is when the hillsides truly come alive. You’ll see the white-capped range of the Himalayas bathed in soft red and pink light, and on clear days will even get a peek at the legendary summit of Mt. Everest.
After enjoying the hilltop panoramas of the surrounding valleys, you’ll set off on a gentle trek through terraced fields and lush forests. While Kathmandu is known for its world-renowned historical landmarks, the surrounding countryside is home to equally impressive natural landmarks. You’ll cross under-the-radar villages and gently sloping hills as you make your way to Chagunarayan Temple, one of the oldest examples of pagoda architecture in the region. Enjoy the intricate wood and stone carvings and admire the Vishnu altar inside, dedicated to the Hindu god of preservation.
