Located in the midway to a famous Hill Station in Nepal, ‘Nagarkot’, Nagarkot Community Homestay is inhabited around rich in biodiversity and culture, a lot of things to see and do, proximity to the jungle and waterfall, and in a close distance for hiking, inspired 13 houses to register the village as the Nagarkot Community Homestay in Bastola Gaun. A calm environment with the panoramic scenes, fresh air on the lap of green forest, Natural River tourist pleasure and delightful taste of local organically produced and prepared food. You can involve yourself in local activities for your daily exercises which are just within 22 km around you from the Kathmandu valley.

On our recent visit to the Nagarkot Community Homestay, we would like to share our top ten moments with the people of Nagarkot Homestays, our mesmerizing interaction with Bastola culture, and, thank heavens, our reunion with the wonders of nature.

Nagarkot is an ideal composure of nature and the human civilization, which evolves with it.
