Lookout Tower

Viewpoint in Nagarkot

A popular spot to soak in the Himalayan splendour is this tower, perched at 2164m on a ridge, although the rising vegetation can obscure the vista. It’s around an hour’s walk (4km) south from the village, and best at sunrise. If you’re not up for a dark and chilly walk, taxis and private cars (return Rs 1200) are easily arranged through any hotel or the tourist offices.
