Nagarkot - the Gate to Heaven....
When the Nepalese travel agent organizing my trip to his country included in the program a one day trip to Nagarkot with an overnight stay, I just said to myself – well, why not.
I just thought - one of these places you visit three times in your life – first time, last time and never again.
In other words – a place like thousand others, a memory of it will fade few days later.
Well, as it turned out - I couldn’t be more wrong. It is the place that many of you after seeing these Free Nagarkot Nepal Pictures will certainly say:
I have never been there but I already miss it…..
Nagarkot is a small village north-east of Kathmandu situated on the mountain ridge surrounding the Kathmandu Valley.
What makes it so special is - location, location, and once again location and we all know very well what does that mean!
From the top of the ridge (at an altitude of about 2200 meters - 7200 ft) it offers fantastic views on Himalayan ranges – from Dhaulagiri on the west, through Langtang range to Mt. Everest (Nepalese name - Sagarmatha) on the east and if you are very lucky even further east to the massif of Kanchenjunga.
And all the way to the horizon the panoramic view on the Kathmandu Valley.
No wonder, Nagarkot is a widely enjoyed resort with many hotels and guesthouses best known not for the accommodations they offer but for the unforgettably idyllic sunset and sunrise views of the mountains.
