It is bad (and a little bit dissapointed) when you can not see the main attraction. But I think the most important thing that we should be able to cherish every moment of our travel. Other than those relaxing moments in Nagarkot, we also met with several stranger and had a really nice conversation with them. Discussing about country and from those conversation, realize that we don’t know much about our country. Not a good ambassador, need more preparation on information about it 🙂
Last but not least we met famous actor (according to his own statement) as our hostel host, whom really friendly to us, sharing some stories about life of Nepal people.
Anyway, I took a picture of a photo which show the real actual scenery of Himalaya if the sky is clear. Hope it can intrigue you to go there, since I would someday 🙂
Flight (New Delhi – Kathmandu – New Delhi)
We use SpiceJet – one of Indian’s budget airline. The aircraft was ok; the service was not bad since they put personnel after the security checking. It was very useful for us who almost late.
How much: 8,475 Indian Rupee (include seat reservation); more or less 180 USD.
Accommodation & Meal
We stayed in Peaceful Cottage. I personally thought it was a perfect spot; located at the centre of Nagarkot Hill station. They also have 360 degree panoramic room, located in tower. We got corner room which has two sided window which offer 2 different views. It was clean enough. The meal was great! The most important thing that instead of having common room, they have common gigantic balcony to enjoy the surrounding.
How much: 31.5 USD per person for 1 night (total for 2 person 63 USD). The room rate itself 25 USD for 2 person back then.
We only used taxi both for Kathmandu to Nagarkot and Nagarkot to Kathmandu.
How much: 45 USD total
Flight -> book the flight as soon as possible, you will get better rate if you book 3 months before compare to 2 months before etc. The first time I saw the ticket – which was 5 months before departing date, it was 5, 280 Indian Rupee (112 USD) per person. It is cheaper compare to actual rate I got 8,475 Indian Rupee (180 USD), which was booked 4 months before departing date.Weather (very important!) -> do the research for best time to visit Nagarkot 🙂 It said that October to March will be the best time to see Himalaya in a clear sky.
