No trip to Nepal is complete without seeing the Himalayas at some point. While you can get a glimpse in Patan and sometimes by the Tundikhel Parade Ground in Kathmandu, the best local views are around 30 miles to the East. One of these towns is Nagarkot.
We headed up there after Bhaktapur through beautiful views on winding country roads through farms and small villages.
Our first stop to look at the views was the Hotel View Point which was aptly named with several high terraces for the best views.
Of course, there are dozens of hotels all around the rim, and those with views, of course, commanding the highest rates.
You can just barely see the snow blowing off the top of the mountain in the center.
