A sunrise from Nagarkot Hill (Nagarkot sunrise) is popular during a stay in Nepal due to its breathtaking and panoramic views of the Himalayan mountain range, including the mountain Everest. Nagarkot is situated approximately 32 kilometers east of Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, and it stands at an elevation of around 2,195 meters (7,201 feet).

Nagarkot offers unobstructed views of a wide range of Himalayan peaks, including Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world. An early morning light bathes the snow-capped peaks in a warm golden glow, creating a mesmerizing visual spectacle.

Furthermore, it’s a serene and tranquil hill station away from the bustling city life of Kathmandu. Visitors can enjoy a peaceful environment, making it an ideal spot for relaxation and reflection. Likewise, during the summer months, Nagarkot’s cooler temperatures provide a welcome escape from the heat of the city and lower altitudes.

A visit Nagarkot is relatively easy to reach from Kathmandu, making it a popular destination for both locals and tourists. The short distance and accessibility contribute to its popularity for day trips or short getaways. Additionally, Nagarkot hills are clean and fresh air, providing a respite from the city’s pollution.

In addition to the natural beauty, visitors can experience the local culture, interact with friendly locals, and get a taste of Nepali hospitality. Especially for photography enthusiasts, capturing the changing colors of the Himalayan peaks as the sun rises can be a remarkable experience.

Nagarkot Sunrise Tour Review

The Best Sunrise Ever

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 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. 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.
