Nagarkot, the best Himalayan vantage point in the Kathmandu Valley, is located 32 kilometres east of the city. It is one of the most scenic spots in Bhaktapur district and is renowned for its spectacular sunrise view of the Himalayas.

 

Nagarkot has earned a reputation as one of the best spots to view Mount Everest as well as other snow-topped peaks of the Himalayan range of eastern Nepal from the Kathmandu Valley. It also offers an excellent view of the Indrawati river valley to the east.

 

The narrow mountain paths take you through dense forest and ancient quiet villages while some of the highest peaks in the Himalayas provide a stunning backdrop. With an elevation of 2,195 meters, Nagarkot offers a panoramic view of the valley and an opportunity to observe the rich Nepali culture and traditions at close quarters.

March to May is one of the best times to trek with lots of flowers in bloom, especially rhododendrons in the mountains. While the sky may not be crystal clear as during the autumn months, it is the second busiest season for trekking and mountaineering.

 

June to August are wet but the mountains and hills are covered with lush, full green forests and vegetation. The daily cloud coverage means that mountain views are not guaranteed but as very few people travel during this time it can present the perfect opportunity for people to explore the trails and nature in quiet.

 

September to November are the busiest trekking months due to predictable weather and mostly clear skies. The mountain views are spectacular but the most popular trails can become quite busy.

 

The winter months of December to February are good to trek due to the clean skies and the reduced number of trekkers. However, you should be prepared for cold temperatures.

Our guides are trained in First Aid and have significant experience in trekking this and many other routes throughout Nepal. Safety is our foremost priority and our staff will be available for any issues, and alert to any symptoms of illness,v that may come up.

 

Altitude problems, Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), can be life threatening and can occur at any point above 3000m. Our trip itinerary has been designed specifically to allow you to have enough time to acclimatise to the altitude as our height increases. Our guides are very experienced and will act in accordance with the seriousness of any mountain sickness suffered. The easiest and best remedy for AMS is to descend quickly, so never ignore the symptoms and please talk to your guide or leader if you feel unwell. They are trained to manage the logistics and assess the situation continually to make sure that you have a safe trip and enjoy yourself.

It is strongly advised that you arrive in Nepal at least 1 full day before the intended start date of your trek. This will give you the opportunity to allow for any jetlag and to obtain any additional items you may require in the numerous trekking and climbing supply shops in Kathmandu.

An airport pick up and hotel on arrival can be arranged easily for you if you wish and we will be on hand to assist you in picking up any items you need or want and to arrange tours of Kathmandu’s numerous cultural sites.

Guest Lodges, sometimes called Teahouses, along the way provide good accommodation and a considerable choice of well-prepared meals. However, it is advisable to bring your own sleeping bag, as during the high season, bedding can be in short supply and it can get very cold at the higher altitudes.

A private jeep/car transport is arranged for your departure and return and can take from 1-2 hours depending on the designated start/ finish point. For those on a tighter budget or wishing to experience a more ‘local’ trip you can utilise the local bus transport instead.

Trekking in the Kathmandu Valley offers beautiful views of the Himalayan mountains such as Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Gauri Shanker and even the Everest mountain range on clear days. It offers the chance to get an idea of typical Nepal countryside life and ethnic culture. It is best suited for those who are travelling with children or do not have enough time for longer treks.
