Nagarkot Sunrise Tour Review

Nagarkot hiking Tour was great

Rated 5 out of 5
April 10, 2022

Ammar Guni (my guide) and Manoj (driver) were great and punctual. Although it was, unfortunately, cloudy morning and during the sunrise, I could see some mountains for a few minutes. Because the clouds came very quickly over the mountains.

Likewise, it was a lovely hike down the mountain with great views. Definitely, an easy and quick hike took 1.5 hours and all downhill but it was so nice to pass through the village and see how the locals live. I felt very comfortable and safe the whole time. Thanks Gokyo treks arranging our great trip 😊

Nagarkot sunrise with Bhaktapur City Tour with Guide Ammar. It was an amazing day trip with Ammar Guni! His knowledge on every aspect of Nepal and the daily life of their local people was great. The sunrise from Nagarkot was not the best as it was a cloudy morning reaching the hill station.

In fact, the guide told us some of the mountain names. Despite clouds, we had a great hike to Changu Narayan temple, as well as Bhaktapur royal palace a UNESCO heritage site. Fabulous hike with stunning sightseeing. The private aspect of this tour is so agreeable! Highly suggest.

Ammar Guni was a great and professional guide. He picked up at 4:25 am in the morning for express drive to Nagarkot Tower. We reach Nagarkot Tower and catch the sunrise right in time. Mr, Guni told us the great stories about Hindu temples, and heritage sites in Bhaktapur and Changu Narayan. I and my family were very happy with his service. Thanks Ammar for arranging such a great trip

I was lucky to have Ammar Guni as my guide for Nagarkot and Bhaktapur tours. It was a great experience. We had a great morning with fine views of snowy peaks. The nature walk from Telkot to Changu Narayan was beautiful to see fertile lands and bricks factory but encountered with some drops of rains in between.

He took me through a really nice and easy route and it was an experience I’ll never forget. If you have a chance to go and hike with him you won’t regret it.
