For those who don't have the time to hike for several days in Nepal, this one-day Sankhu to Nagarkot hike is for you.
Your day will start with our guide picking you up at your hotel at 9 am before driving you for five hours to the medieval Newari village of Sankhu. Here you'll visit the famous pilgrimage site of the Vajrajogini temple, and soak up the atmosphere of an ancient Nepalese village. The trek itself will last for around four hours and take you through forests and more Nepali villages until you arrive at the breathtaking summit of Nagarkot. See for yourself the sweeping panorama of the Himalayas - including Mount Everest on a clear day - and the Kathmandu Valley.
This is definitely a side to Nepal you won't see if you only stay in Kathmandu.
