Nagarkot is a village about an hours drive from Kathmandu towards the Langtang Mountain Range of the Himalayas.

We walked for about two hours up the hill through local villages. On the way we came by a Shiva temple.

The hotel was on top of the hill with a spectacular view of the Himalayas. I watched the sunset and sunrise from the top of the hotel.
