Sunrise and sunset from Nagarkot
Nagarkot sunrise is one of the main attraction of Nagarkot, weather permitted of course. The best time to see the glory of the Himalayas is to wake up before the crack of dawn.
Nagarkot boasts one of the broadest views of the Himalayas with 6 out of 14 highest peaks above 8000 meter can be seen from here on a crystal clear day though it can be just a little tip haha.. The highest peaks that can be seen here are Everest (8850m), Cho oyu (8), Manaslu (8156m), Annapurna(8010m), Dhaulagiri (8176m), shishapangma (8) along with lots of peaks above 7000 meters, 6000 meters. The crow fly distance of the mountains from Nagarkot ranges from 50km (jugal range of the nearest range of the Himalayas to the kathmandu valley) to 150km far (everest).
