If you like the idea of hiking in the Himalayas but don’t have time for a multi-day trek, this day hike from Nagarkot to Dhulikhel is ideal. These towns are close to Kathmandu, so you don’t need to travel far. Nagarkot is famous for its sunrise views, and from here you can see better views of the mighty snow-capped peaks than you can in the capital.
