Nagarkot Sunrise Tour takes you to Nagarkot hill, which is near Kathmandu valley. Situated merely 32 km east of Kathmandu valley, it offers a great vantage point for viewing the Himalayan mountains. Moreover, the hilltop is a popular spot for witnessing magnificent sunrise vistas.

Upon arriving there, you will marvel at the spectacular sunkissed snow-peaked mountains which you can see during sunrise. Moreover, you will also get a bird’s eye view of Bhaktapur, an antique city just east of Kathmandu.
