Kathmandu Nagarkot Weekend Tour with ‘Adventure Himalayan Travels’ is 4-days long Tour Package that takes you through ancient cities of Kathmandu and Bhaktapur to Nagarkot - a location popular worldwide for the view of sunrise it offers.
The tour kicks of in Kathmandu, where you will explore the city's several UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Pashupatinath Temple, Swoyambunath (also known as Monkey Temple), and Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Each place is rich in culture and history. Swoyambunath is full of symbolism and is one of the oldest religious sites in Nepal (over 2000 years old!). The Buddhist temple offers an incredible view of Kathmandu. Pasupatinath Temple is the most famous Hindu temple in the country. You can see sadhus (holy men) meditating, pilgrims bathing, and bodies being cremated on the banks of the Bagmati River. Last, but not least, Bhaktapur Durbar Square is an ancient Newari kingdom located just outside of Kathmandu, on the way to Nagarkot.
Later that day, we take a short drive to Nagarkot, arriving in time for the sunset. Nagarkot is absolutely stunning and you'll get a clear view of the Himalayan range from here. The next day, you'll up for an early morning breakfast to watch the sunrise behind these pristine peaks. It is a hill resort popular for having an extensive view of Kathmandu Valley, Mt. Everest, Manaslu, Gauri Shankar and other ountains of Eastern Nepal.
Kathmandu Nagarkot Weekend Tour is an ideal family tour package which offers a rare opportunity of getting into the core of Nepal and admiring its wonders without a trace of physical strain.
