The more common way to see Mount Everest from Kathmandu is by taking the short & sweet hike Nagarkot . Nagarkot, at 2195m, is a quiet and scenic hilltop about 32 km from Kathmandu. It is an outstanding View point of mountain. You also get to experience typical village life found in the foothills of the mighty Himalayas. The Nagarkot hiking trail is quite easy, but exciting nevertheless.
After 45 Minute drive to Changunarayan, we will our hike to Nagarkot. Its 4-5 hrs walk from Changunarayan to Nagarkot through the small forest & local vilalges. For people who have limited time in Nepal or would like something more relaxed than a high mountain trek, this is perfect for you. From Nagarkot, you can see a panorama view of the Himalayas, ranging from the Dhaulagiri in the west to Mount Everest in the east, as well as the magnificent Kanchenjunga (at 8586m, it’s the 3rd highest mountain in the world.) Try to bring some binoculars for the best view of Everest. We will be far from the noise of Kathmandu for the day, immersed in the relaxed lifestyle of the villagers.
