This is one of our very best popular short hike from Kathmandu. Kathmandu, Capital City of the kingdom of Nepal, is situated in a basin surrounded by chain of mountain. Eastern rim of the valley from Nagarkot to Kakani provides easily accessible and a quick approach to the mountain. The Himalayan view from Mt. Everest in the east to Manaslu and Hiumchuli in the west can be seen throughout the trail. Langtang and Ganesh Himal dominates skyline on the north. On a clear day part of the range of Annapurna can be seen. The village dotted on the ridge and foothill of this section of the rim gives a bird eye view of diverse culture. The oak, pine and rhododendron forests give different view of the fast disappearing forest resource of Nepal.
Beside Dhulikhel, Nagarkot (2175m) is popular with tourist and local people alike. There are several tourist standards hotels that fit in with every budget. An overnight stay would allow you to see a memorable view of sunset and sunrise over the Himalayas. This ridge is linked with 32-km road with Kathmandu. Bhaktapur City is en-route.
