Quick escape from Kathmandu
Just a few hours drive from Kathmandu, Nagarkot is a quick retreat where you can enjoy calm environment with the panoramic scenes and take in a breath of fresh breeze on the lap of green forest.
What an incredible experience to be welcomed into somebody's home for a few days, and being able to witness their lifestyle from up close. Communication was a bit of an issue when Raja was not around (my fault for not learning some rudiments of Nepali), b
The experience in the Nagarkot homestay was truely amazing. The Bastola family is lovely and made me feel like home. To experience how local Nepali farmers live and be part of the community is a one in a lifetime opportunity. I also had a great time hiking to the waterfall and the Buddha temple on top of the mountain. The view is stunning. I can highly recommend the homestay in the Nagarkot community.
Nagarkot is home to a farming community, by day the villagers work in the fields tending to their crops and livestock. The children spend the day in the school and their evenings playing hide and seek.
