I have been to Nagarkot hundreds of times but every time the town offers a different charm. A small hilltop town 30 km from Kathmandu, Nepal offers the spectacular view of the mountains and of the valley. On 18th August 2016, we decided to take the alternative route to this beautiful town. This route offers the view of the residing villages and is rugged. Since it takes one and half hour ride from Kathmandu to Nagarkot, we started our trip after lunch. We got on our Royal Enfield and took off. The alternate off road ride to Nagarkot is not graveled and is a bit rugged. The road is narrower and passes through many villages around Kathmandu. The trip begins with lush greenery of Sankhu.
