35 kms from Kathmandu on the eastern rim of the valley is the hill of Nagarkot (1,950m). This place offers a great mountain view. On a clear weather, views extend all the way from Mt. Dhaulagiri in the west, past Mt. Everest to Kanchenjunga in the west. While the mountains are relatively distant compared to the intimate view you will experience. Nagarkot is also a famous destination for sunset and sunrise view.
Between Octobers to March the trip to Nagarkot will be always rewarded with the view. If you walk an hour to the view tower at the highest southern point on the ridge will give you 360 degrees view from a lookout tower on the ridge. Although you can make some pleasant strolls in the surrounding country, there is an array of an interesting downhill return hikes.
