Nagarkot Sunrise View and Day Hiking from Kathmandu

197 reviews
A mountain village in Nepal, Nagarkot is famous for its sunrise views over the Himalayas. On this tour from Kathmandu, enjoy an early morning panorama over world-renowned peaks before a scenic hike to Changu Narayan. Visit other villages as you make your way through the country’s picturesque hillsides before arriving at the UNESCO-listed temple. A private guide means plenty of personal attention, and hotel pickup makes for a seamless experience.

The architecture of basantapur is very historic and finely crafted. The place has old woody fragrance and can see lots of pigeons and monkey. The tea of different species and herbs are really fashion. Its not clean all the time and doesn't require any tickets.

East Asian architecture is so bland and underwhelming when compared to Ottoman architecture, European Architecture and Turkic-Iranian architecture. Blah. Also the filth of Durbar Square adds to the ugliness.

The old architectures bring you to the past and give us a little idea how people were at that time and their mode of living too.
