Nagarkot is the nearest viewpoint from Kathmandu to view the ever smiling Himalayan ranges. You can watch such splendid scenery from the hotel balcony enjoying your time and with comfort. You can watch a series of the Himalayas like Annapurna, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Jugal, Rolwaling, Everest and Numbur. To get the great view of those series, you have to visit this place in the month of October to December and March to April. At this time, the sky will be clear most of the time. But if you visit this place during another month, the mountains are likely to get behind the clouds, making you disappointed. You can also go to this place directly from Tribhuwan International Airport and enjoy your stay with nature. Apart from viewing the Himalayas, you can go visit a nearby village to know about them or come back to Bhaktapur city, as this place is near to Nagarkot.
