Nagarkot Sunrise is one of the amazing things that most people would like to see. If you just have a day in and is planning for Nagarkot Sunrise and Bhaktapur sightseeing then this is the best option to escape from the crowd of Kathmandu. You will be surprised to see just how much the local villages along the trail is unchanged and still shows their traditional countryside lifestyle even though they are so close to the city. Nagarkot is at 2195m and it is a scenic hilltop about 32 km from Kathmandu which is very popular as a Mountain Viewpoint.      

From Nagarkot, you can see the vista of the Himalayas ranging from the Dhaulagiri in the west to Kanchenjunga in the east. Also, possibly we can see Mt Everest but only as a dot on the horizon but with a binocular you can have a good view of it. The significance of this place is to watch the stunning sunrise in the early morning. The sunrise and sunset seen from this hill could be a lifetime memory for you. After watching the sunrise in Nagarkot, we will also get an opportunity to visit a famous and old city of Bhaktapur. Bhaktapur is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its richness in cultures, temples, arts and crafts being the prime reason.Here you will see many traditional things. During the Bhaktapur sightseeing, you will see Golden Gate, Nyatapole Temple, National Art Gallery, Dattatreya Temple, Potter’s Square, the palace of 55 windows, Bhaktapur Durbar Square and many another famous place. Also, we will visit famous Changu Narayan Temple which has the oldest living monument dating back to 5th century. It is also a UNESCO world heritage site.

So the main purpose of this tour is to escape from the busy town of Kathmandu Valley.  Therefore, Himalayan Recreation Treks and Expedition invites you to walk through lush mountains, with the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas as your backdrop.

Heavenly Himalayas and Everest base camp Trek
Trip Date: 04/10/2016

That was my dream to be there once in my life. Everest base camp trek was my dream. But.. last month I was there. it was an unforgettable experience and beautiful achievement of my life. Amazing views of a mountain just in front of my eyes, beautiful views of Khumbu icefall, glacier and glacial lake. Wow ! Heaven on earth.
While I reached in Kalapatthar 5,555 m, I thought I was in the top of the world. I found myself surrounding the beautiful Himalayas such as Mt. Everest, Pumori, Nuptse, Lhotse and so on. By the stunning views of the Himalayas and Himalayan range, I felt nervous and neither I am able to speak nor express my happiness.
Everest base camp trek is adventurous. there is a lot of difficulties. it is also one of the dangerous trekking in the world. I want to recommend all of you to choose good trekking partner. Your smart choice will make your travel successful. I found #Himalayan Recreation is a good one and that was my perfect choice.
I can't forget one kind, helpful and smart person in my lifetime. He is Bharat, my friend, my guide. He made my trekking more beautiful than my expectation.

Thank you so much, Bharat and Team Himalayan recreation.

Great company, Wonderful Everest base camp
