Everest, Gaurishankar, Langtang, Dorje Lakpa and many more. It also offers beautiful scenic view of Kathmandu Valley as the hill station lies above 2,000 m. sea level.

Before the unification of modern Nepal, Nagarkot was an ancient fort of the Kathmandu Valley from where external affairs of other kingdoms used to be monitored. But later, it turned out to be a summer retreat destination of Royal Families.
