Visited this place with my friend on 7th Jan2017. Its about 35km from Kathmandu and takes about an hour to reach here.

We went, like most, to go see the sunset from Nagarkot. It's a rough ride from Kathmandu, about 1.5hrs long. The area itself is not too bad with (potentially) a nice view of the Himalayas. Unfortunately, the view to the Himalayas and the Kathmandu valley was covered in a thick blanket of disgusting smog. The sunset was nice, however, you... More

Nice walk through the trees for an hour or so. Ask your hotel operator to point you to the trailhead (I think it is near a school). The path is clearly marked. You'll exit by the side of the road and can walk back into town that way (or just turn around and repeat yourself). Keep an eye open for... More

We went there to see the sunset. Though we failed seeing that from top, but managed that amazing view on our way. Currently, the road is not good and it takes more than 1 hour from Kathmandu. However, construction of wider road is going on and hopefully u will not find any trouble reaching there in future. The main astonising... More

We spent two afternoons getting out of Kathmandu to experience the outdoors and not have too far to drive.We enjoyed our little hikes through the countryside and small villages. Not what we are used to hiking in the Canadian Rocky's but the people were very friendly, the views of the Himalayas spectacular and the exercise was welcomed. You might find... More

It is a moderate trek in the pine forest, which is totally underwhelming except if you are a botanist. You get to see lots of ferns, lichen and pine cones on the way. The scenery at the end is totally awesome. But you can always do it half way from the reverse and avoid the pine forest itself.

Nagarkot is an 30 minutes drive from Kathmandu & if you want to watch the Sunrise you must visit in the early morning at 6.00 Am the location can be trekked & should be done only if you have not already done the EBC or ABC trekk.

It was a lovely walk, the view was excellant, just not used to walking through other people's property. I think some of them were just sick of tourists gawking at them

If you're feeling fit and don't mind a few ups and downs the Nature Trail at Nagarkot is a good way of getting the feel of the countryside of Nepal. Lots of steps to negotiate and a steep climb up the road to finish off.
