Inhabited around rich biodiversity and nature, at Nagarkot Community Homestay you can enjoy a calm environment with the panoramic scenes, fresh breeze on the lap of green forest, a soak in the waterfall, and the taste of delightful local cuisine, produced organically. Located on the way to the main town of ‘Nagarkot’, and a quick escape from the busy streets of Kathmandu, you can immerse yourselves in mesmerizing interactions living with the locals and discover the wonders of nature.

At the homestay you can feel at home staying with the villagers as a family member, sharing their kitchen and daily activities.


Badly damaged in the earthquake, the community is shaking off the dust, rebuilding their homes and slowly getting back to normal. Income from the homestay has gone a long way in helping this process. The women are all learning English from youngsters in the village and are keen to communicate with their guests.


Rural yet not so far from the city, Nagarkot Community homestay is much more than a hamlet just down from Nagarkot that is made up of the extended Bastola family. There are 13 homes in this Community Homestay and the village offers a calm environment with panoramic views down the valley. Guests are accommodated in comfortable, simply furnished rooms with attached bathrooms. Meals are prepared from organically grown fruit and vegetables grown by the families. You are welcome to join in with daily activities like milking the cow, cutting grass for the animals, collecting firewood and foliage from the woods and join in with the locals.


Nagarkot is just an hour away from Kathmandu, the hill station stretches over an area of about 15 kilometres up the hillside to the ridge that forms the rim of the Kathmandu Valley. At an altitude of 2195 metres, it is a little cooler than in the valley. Famous for its good views of the Himalayas you are well away from the noise and the crowds but close enough to easily go and admire the sunrise over the Himalayas, where on a clear day, you will see Everest in the distance. The magnificent view of Kathmandu valley along with the sunset adds up the specialty of this place.

Nagarkot is a home to tiny settlements on the surrounding hillsides, forest path, waterfalls, temples and an ideal place if you are looking to admire nature or engage in outdoor activities near Kathmandu.

Some of the major Attractions in Nagarkot:

  • Nagarkot View Tower
  • Jalpadevi Temple
  • Waterfall
  • Maha Manjhushree Temple

Best time to Visit Nagarkot

For clear views of the Himalaya, we recommend visiting between September and November or March and May. Still, the rest of the year is a good time to visit as well as there are a lot of festivals taking place in Nagarkot year round and the climate is mild.




$23 per guest per night
