Travel from Kathmandu to Sankhu then hike to Nagarkot

In the morning, our guide will pick you up from a predetermined location in Kathmandu Valley and drive you to Sankhu (elevation 1,759m / 5,771ft) by private vehicle (around 40 mins). Visit the back streets that were built back in the 2nd to 9th Century to get to the Vajra Yogini Temple and tour for a little.
Start hiking from there, passing through villages where the rural people still live in the traditional ways. Hiking past the forested tree line you will take about 3 hours to reach Nagarkot (elevation 2,100m / 6,890 ft). As you hike you will see the peaks of famous mountains like Everest (8,848m/ 29,028ft), Lantern (7,246m / 23,773ft), Ganesh Mountain (7,429m / 24,373ft), Manaslu (8,163m / 26,782ft), Gauri Sankar (7,134m / 23,406ft), Shishapanma (8,013m / 26,289ft).
As the evening magic begins, you will see the mountains light up with the beautiful colors of the sunset. From Nagarkot you will return to Kathmandu by private car and dropped at the desired location at the end of the tour.
