Nagarkot to Dhulikhel Day Hike

Nagarkot to  Dhulikhel  hiking is, indeed,  the best day hiking to view the Mountain peaks and sunrise. The hiking trail is strewn with virgin forest and provides the best views of Himalayan Mountains and traditional villages. During hike you will visit two popular sites- Nagarkot and Dhulikhel. Nagarkot is the favorite weekend gateway for those who seek Himalayan scenery and rural serenity. The surrounding countryside of Nagarkot is great for walking. From Nagarkot the snow peaks look especially most beautiful during sunset and sunrise. The most popular hike leads down from Nagarkot along a ridge to the temple of Changu Narayan and visit Sankhu village to the right and Bhaktapur to the left.
Dhulikhel is a widely recognized hill resort. It has been a weekend spot for mountain viewers. The sunrise view over the Himalayan mountain range is fantastic. Hiking through Dhulikhel means as if you are rambling through a cultural theme park where you find bare-brick houses with carved wooden windows, pagoda style Hindu temples and sacred statues everywhere. You will get a beautiful vista of the town and surrounding areas from the hilltop. From Dhulikhel one can see breathtaking view of Himalayan Mountains  like Mt. Annapurna (8091 m), Mt. Ganesh Himal (7429 m), Mt. Langtang (7234 m), Mt. Phuribichyachu (6637 m), Mt. Gaurishanker (7134 m), Mt. Lhotse (8516 m) and many other peaks if a good weather prevails.
