SCIF @ Volunteer Work Nepal offers special Nagarkot 2D1N Trek packages to our volunteers and guests. This package covers your entire trek trip, and 100% of the profits will go to the running of the orphanage.
Nagarkot Trek is the easiest and safest trek in Nepal, and it takes the least amount of effort. The Nagarkot Hill (1,800m) is located near Kathmandu, and is a vantage point for viewing amazing sunrises and sunsets.
And if you need a little more incentive to get started on this super easy hike, the trekking trail up the hill offers stunning views of snow-peaked mountains such as Langtang (7,234m), Gauri Shankar (7,134m), Mt. Everest (8,848m) and more. 🙂
In this trek package, you will also get to visit two famous UNESCO World Heritage monuments, namely Bhaktapur Durbar Square and Changu Narayan Temple.
