Kartike Thunko, Nagarkot
US$25 - US$99
The Nagarkot Farmhouse Resort is a great place to escape from Kathmandu for a weekend! The rooms are comfortable and clean, the restaurant/lounge is very cozy , the grounds are beautifully landscaped and the view is stunning. The hotel staff recommended a lovely walk that took us through some villages and fields, rather than to the watch tower that most people go up up to when they visit Nagarkot. The welcoming staff, the beautiful rooms with stunning views of Everest on a clear day, the surrounding orchards and the wonderful walks available make this a very special place. There was something magical about watching the eagles soaring in the valleys below as you sat eating one of the beautifully prepared meals.
