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 55 windows, made of black lacquered sandalwood, were very intricate considering the palace was completed in 1754 during the reign of King Malla. Above the Golden Gate were 2 famous figures: golden wing bird and Kali the goddess of destruction. The gate was the main entrance to the palace courtyard. Truly the star of Bhaktapur Durbar Square. This general area costs 1,500 rupee per person to enter.

This is one of the significant structures in Bhaktapur Durbar Square with NPR 1,500 entrance fee for foreigners. Bhaktapur Durbar Square can be reached within 45 mins from Thamel district in Kathmandu by taxi which cost NPR 1,000 per trip. It was built by King Bhupatindra Malla and completed in 1784 under the reign of King Jaya Ranjit Malla who was the last king of Bhaktapur Malla Kings. Unfortunately, visitors are not allowed to enter the interior of the palace due to damage after earthquake especially 2015. It is protected under the UNESCO World Heritage which is part of the heritage in Kathmandu Valley. Nevertheless, the magnificence of the structure can still be seen from the exterior building.

It's a great palace with amazing carpentry with 55widows, each window is different from the other. There's no similarity between any widows. It's feast to watch, well maintained by protecting and preserving the palace. It's must visit if you are in Nepal

In my opinion absolutely nothing to see. When you hear the word Palace you think of grandeour but this is a fairly unattractive building that you can't even photograph for the constant crowds that stand around outside, and which has nothing much in the courtyard either. If you have a spare 5 minutes and are walking past anyway fine, but not worth a visit in itself. Disappointing.
