A long day of uphill road rides though the pine forest brings us to a hilltop at 7133 ft above sea level.

First, we visit the traditional pottery Newar pottery village of Thimi on our way to Nagarkot.
A lunch stop at Bhaktapur, the ancient city dotted with 16 and 17 century monuments will bring you back to the Malla dynasty. We spend the night at Nagarkot in one of the many fine hotels and wake up to have breakfast with some of the 7000 and 8000 meter such as Langtang, Ganesh Himal,DorjeLakpa, GauriShankar and even Everest from a distance. We stay overnight at Nagarkot.
