Sakhu Nagarkot day hiking

Sakhu Nagarkot day hikes

Nagarkot is most popular hill station very close on the eastern side of Kathmandu. It is just 32 km from Kathmandu, at an altitude of 2170m and can be reached by driving of 1 and half hour. The road goes past fields where they harvest rice, paddies and potatoes. Our plan is to hike up to Nagarkot and stay there for sunset views before finally getting back to Kathmandu.

On a clear day, views of a massive mountain range, including the Mount Everest are stunning. If you have a spare day in Kathmandu, you should come to Nagarkot for this amazing experience.

After breakfast, we drive to Sankhu that should take about an hour. From there, we hike nearly 4 or 5 hours to reach Nagarkot.
