Nagarkot and Dhulikhel
The tiny settlement of Nagarkot clings to a hilltop 32 kms east of Kathmandu at an altitude of 2195m. / 7200 ft. It is one of the best vantage point to view the peaks - from the Annapurnas to Everest, the peaks seem no more than a day's walk away.The sunset and sunrise view over the Himalayan panorama from Nagarkot is a memory of lifetime for many. It is also possible to do a day hike from Nagarkot to Dhulikhel along the valley rim. Equally enjoyable would be a day hike from Sankhu ( Kathmandu to Nagarkot )
30 kms east of Kathmandu lies the small resort town of Dhulikhel set on a hill top, enveloped in copper soiled terraces with magnificent views of the central Himalayan peaks. Dhulikhel is well known for its sunrise views and a number of day trails lead along the north ridge of the town.
Nagarkot and Dhulikhel offer similar views . So visiting either one or the other ( not both) is recommended , if you do not have enough time for both.
