The hike from Chisapani to Nagarkot is an amazing journey of mountain views and beautiful hilly scenery. Leaving Chisapani, the path furthers out to dense forests. Massive woodlands, an army camp and other small villages come across the path along the way to Nagarkot. The trail winds up and down quite a bit and the lush vegetation of the area provides a beguiling setting for a hike. Nagarkot is thickly covered in forests, and is located in a lush green valley with many villages dotting its acreage. It is also called the premier Hill Station of the Kathmandu Valley and is situated above the valley towards the north of the city. Nagarkot is famous for its sunrise view amidst the Himalayas. The view of Mount Everest, along with many other peaks of eastern Nepal can be seen from the vantage point of Nagarkot. It also offers a panoramic view of the Kathmandu valley and the Shivapuri National Park. Because of its strategic location, Nagarkot was an ancient fort of the Kathmandu valley built to monitor the external activities of other kingdoms in ancient times. Later, it became a retreat for the royal family before becoming popular as an international hill station. It commands one of the broadest views of the Himalayas in the valley- 8 Himalayan ranges of Nepal out of 13 can be seen from here. The Himalayan range include the Annapurna range, the Manaslu range, the Ganesh Himal range, the Langtang range, the Jugal range, the Rolwaling range, the Everest range and the Number range, earning the hill station the top spot for enjoying Himalayan views from the comfort of hotel balconies. Overnight stay at the hotel in Nagarkot, Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included.
