Nagarkot Nepal. A place to be one with Nature.

On the 6th day of our tour of Nepal, we set out on the long drive up 2200 meters on the mountain region through the winding ribbon like road to Nagarkot . . On the way we visited the unique and a very holy place where we saw Lord Maha Vishnu resting on the coils of the 1000 headed Sesh Nag in the middle of a tank. This huge sculpture was sculpted out of one big rock we were told. This massive idol of Maha Vishnu dates back to the 7th century CE. Then we visited a near by Lakshmi temple too. We also visited Surya Vinayak temple on top of a hillock. Here the Vinayak idol is facing the East. Lot of animal sacrifices take place here. The way to Nagarkot was simply great. The mountains, the deep valley and the Narayani River flowing all along the way, were a beautiful sight. Youngsters whizzing past in their motor bikes, lots of people rafting in the river, the sights and sound all around was really a great feeling. At last we reached the Country Villa situated on top of a big mountain which was very imposing. There were 35 rooms with balcony from where the Annapurna range could be seen if weather permitted. All rooms were booked. We were given a nice room on the top floor. With nothing much to do here we were free to be one with Nature. The sun rise was a breathtaking experience, It was a lazy and a relaxed morning, after a sumptuous breakfast I went strolling all around the hotel area, then spent time sitting in the balcony waiting with bated breadth to see the clear mountain range which was playing hide and seek with the clouds looming large above the peaks. The cold wind was making us feel numb but the warm sun made it possible to be out doors. The steep peaks, the deep valley, the dense greenery all around, makes one marvel at Nature which is so very bountiful and beautiful. It was a very relaxed morning. If one wants to relax with good food, drinks and the beauty of Nature in all its glory Nagarkot is the place .

Over the clouds

Nagarkot is a small village located in the east of Kathmandu, it is on a mountain peak which is very high and it is covered by small mountains. The road condition is such that it will take you about 4 hours to cover this 35km from Kathmandu. You have nothing here until the early morning when you see the clouds under your feet. You will see most of the mountain peaks from this village since you are standing above them all. Clouds will cover the whole area around the village.

Nagarkot Overview

Nagarkot adalah sebuah desa yang terletak 32 km di timur Kathmandu, ibu kota Nepal. Dalam Bahasa Nepal, nagar berarti kota dan kot berarti benteng.
Kota benteng di utara Lembah Katmandu tersebut merupakan salah satu tempat terindah di Distrik Bhaktapur. Dari tempat ini, pengunjung bisa memandang pegunungan Himalaya yang menjulang tinggi. Nagarkot juga sebutan untuk puncak bukit setinggi 2.000 meter dpl di Lembah Kathmandu. Desa Nagarkot adalah wilayah strategis bagi imigran dan di masa lalu menjadi tempat raja-raja Kathmandu memantau pajak. Gruber dan Dorville merupakan dua orang Eropa pertama yang datang ke Kathmandu pada 1661. Mereka sampai di Nagarkot dalam perjalanan dari Beijing menuju Roma. Pengawal raja Kathmandu, Pratap Malla, menerima keduanya di desa itu.
Bagi maharaja dan raja-raja, Nagarkot adalah resor musim panas favorit sebab cuacanya sejuk. Tak cuma itu, Perdana Menteri Rana Chanra Shumser juga dianjurkan dokternya untuk berkunjung ke Nagarkot agar cepat sembuh. Itu sebabnya ia membangun istana musim panas yang disebut Bhangeri Durbar di desa tersebut.
Pada 1975, saat penobatan Raja Birendra, jalan menuju ke Nagarkot diaspal agar para tamu kerajaan dari 100 negara bisa datang ke tempat ini dan menikmati pemandangan terbaik terbit serta terbenamnya matahari di pegunungan Himalaya.
Ya, Nagarkot memang dianugerahi pemandangan indah puncak pegunungan Nepal dan Tibet, termasuk Gunung Everest yang merupakan puncak tertinggi di dunia. Beberapa puncak utama pegunungan Himalaya Nepal yang bisa dilihat dari Nagarkot yaitu Ganesh, Manaslu, Dorje Lapka, Langtang, Gauri Shankar, dan Sisa Pagma. 
Nagarkot juga punya resor termasyhur dunia yang didirikan dekat Kota Pemuja, atau dikenal dengan nama Bhaktapur. Walaupun turis datang ke desa indah ini sepanjang tahun, namun waktu terbaik untuk berkunjung ke Nagarkot adalah antara Oktober dan Maret--saat langit sedang cerah.
Iklim di Nagarkot mudah diprediksi dan secara umum menyenangkan. Tempat ini memiliki empat musim, yakni musim semi, musim panas, musim gugur, dan musim dingin. 
Musim semi di Nagarkot berlangsung dari Maret hingga Mei. Sepanjang musim semi, Nagarkot sedikit lebih hangat di sekitar dataran rendahnya. Adapun Juni-September Nagarkot mengalami musim panas yang lembap. Musim panas juga disebut sebagai musim monsun sebab seluruh wilayah Nagarkot menerima 80% curah hujan tanunan disertai badai di malam hari. 
Setelah musim semi, Nagarkot memasuki musim gugur. Tepatnya pada Oktober hingga November. Dengan berlalunya musim panas dan musim semi, cuaca di wilayah ini tetap menyenangkan selama musim gugur. Musim dingin di Nagarkot dimulai pada Desember dan berlangsung hingga Februari. Cuacanya dingin tetapi langit cerah. 
Selama musim semi dan musim panas, temperatur berkisar 20° Celsius pada siang hari dan turun hingga sekitar 10° Celsius di malam hari.
