Nagarkot Hiking

Plan Holidays offers you the real Nepal village hill hiking with the panoramic views of Himalayas at Nagarkot. Nagarkot hiking is for those who wish to stretch their legs and enjoy there are several pleasant strolls around the rural countryside. This is most popular hill station very close to the eastern side of Kathmandu. We start our hike, crossing through the terraced fields, dense Tamang traditional village, with typical countryside houses painted with locally found Ocher.

Nagarkot is situated at 2195 m / 7200ft is a quiet and scenic hilltop about 32 km from Kathmandu, very popular as a Mountain Viewpoint. One can see the panorama of the Himalayas ranging from the Dhaulagiri in the west to Kanchenjunga in the east including Mt Everest (you will see Mt Everest only as a dot on the horizon but with a binocular, you can have a good view of it).

The other ranges you will see are the Langtang, Dorje Lakpa and the Gaurishankar ranges, the Everest which will be your memorable experience. The sunrise and sunset on the Himalayas seen from this hill could be a lifetime memory for you. You pass the uphill trail through scattered villages, forests, and farmlands and reach Nagarkot early afternoon.

The village of Nagarkot is on the edge of the valley and offers superb views of the mountains as well as Kathmandu valley. The most popular walk leads down from Nagarkot along a ridge to the temple of ChanguNarayan- with views of Sankhu village to the right and Bhaktapur to the left. Changunarayan is Nepal oldest living monument dating back to 5th century. It is a UNESCO world heritage site. The Sankhu to Nagarkot hiking starts at the Newar village of Sankhu after the drive of about 1-1.5 hrs from Kathmandu. The small and pleasant village of Sankhu is a major pilgrimage site with the temple of Bajrajogini. Now you hike from Sankhu to Nagarkot and it takes about three and half hours. It a bit difficult climbing the hills but one can do it. You can spend your time amidst the natural surroundings of Nagarkot during hiking.

Simply put “WOW”.

Simply put "WOW". I have never met more responsible people in my life. They made sure every step of the way was taken care of from the drivers, tour guides, trek guides, porters and hotel accommodations. I highly recommend this company for its hard working, responsible and friendly people. The people make a company. Special thanks to: Anuja "the planner", Chitiz & Ashmir "the ultimate trekking guides" and finally Robin "the enthusiastic jungle bird watcher".

Plan Holidays did a fantastic job on our whole trip!

Plan Holidays did a fantastic job on our whole trip! We did the trip that included time in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan National Park and a 5-day trek around Annapurna. From the moment we stepped off the plane, we had guides showing us around and everything was perfectly planned for us. Maila, our trekking guide was amazing and had so much knowledge! It was a great trip!

Incredibly well organized

This company was amazing. Incredibly well organized. I felt safe and spoiled. Our airport transports were always early and waiting for us. All of our reservations for our accommodations and busses were perfect. The temple tour we took was super fun and educational. Some of our luggage got stuck in our layover country and between this travel agency and our hotel they were able to get it for us and deliver it the next day. We also had a 10month old traveling with us and they made sure that our accommodation and travel plans were safe for him. During our 5 days of trekking, we had THE BEST guide/sherpa. I would positively let them plan another trip for us. Thank you!!!!
Karen Graves,

I had a wonderful experience

I recently booked a tour with Plan Holidays, and I had a wonderful experience. Anuja scheduled the tour, and it was comforting to have our trip covered without any concerns. Our guide Shiva took us through Kathmandu, and showed all us the highlights of the city and provided us with the cultural and historical background. We also did the Poon Hill Trek with guides Chitiz and Ashmir, who provided a peaceful hike through the Himalayas. On our last two days, we spent time in Chitwan National Park, where our guide, Robin, took us on adventures where we saw crocodiles and rhinos. The entire package was affordable, and our guides met our every need; they went out of their way for us on many occasions. It was comforting to get off the bus and see our guides waiting for us with our name tags. I would highly encourage anyone to book a trip through this company. I promise that you will have an amazing experience--five stars!
