Trip Introduction

Kathmandu valley has gained its good name as the Temple City of Nepal. It covers seven worldwide heritage sites out of total of 10 heritage sites of Nepal, as listed according to UNESCO, and that too within a distance of about 70 kilometers. The historic valley acts as a home to countless elegant monuments, temples, sculptures, and magnificent artworks belonging to the Malla and Lichaavi periods. Nagarkot hill station, on the other side, constitutes a fine place to view both sunset and sunrise, which belongs to the east of Bhaktapur District at about 32 kilometers from the tourist town of Kathmandu located at the height of 2,175 meters from the level of the sea. Nagarkot hill station acts as a home to a few popular spots in the Himalayan mountain range. These include Mount Everest and other mountain peaks, like Ganesh Himal, Gauri Shankar, and Lantang Peaks. Based on this, a short tour to the capital city of Nepal named Kathmandu and the nearby hill station Nagarkot gives a wonderful presentation of both of these places to worldwide tourists.
