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.
We stayed for 1 night at the homestay. It was an amazing experience! Very friendly family, the son spoke English very well so we learned a lot about the culture. The homemade food was delicious and they showed us multiple nice places in Nagarkot. We would definitely recommend visiting this beautiful place!
Great to live like the locals, with spectacular views of the jungle and down over the valley from our room and dining area. Super friendly, kind, fun hosts. Amazing value with all meals included which were delicious. There's a local bus stop right out the front (around a little bend). The beds were a little hard and water a little cold, but that was part of the experience and everything else made up for it, including the splash in the waterfall, the sunrise view at the top of the mountain and visit to the local temple. Our hosts were warm and welcoming and loved the yoga session in the yoga barn.
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.
