Tourist Bus Service Between Kathmandu Nagarkot Kathmandu

The only nearest hill station from Kathmandu, the Nagarkot is located about 32km east from the capital. Almost no tourist missed this beautiful landmark while visiting Nepal. I was questioned multiple times from my readers "If there is a tourist bus between Kathmandu and Nagarkot"? If you try to look for an answer online, you will find a mixed result mostly from around 2011-2012.  As of today (15 February 2019) I am here with some recent information about tourist bus service between Kathmandu and Nagarkot. 
In 2011 one of the Hotel from Nagarkot started tourist bus service between Nagarkot and Kathmandu. The service was continued until the year 2013. In 2014 they took it down a regular service and decided to run only during the busy season of September to December in Autumn and March to May in Spring. In recent year there is no longer a tourist bus service between Kathmandu and Nagarkot. A majority of tourist would visit Nagarkot as a day trip from Kathmandu including other cultural world heritage site such as Bhakatapur, Changunarayan etc. At the same time, a different visitor has their uniqueness. "One stone two birds" They would probably prefer to include additional activities such as day hiking, or overnight Sunrise sunset hike etc. Due to the various cause, there was perhaps too little number of tourist who would only like to go Nagarkot and back to Kathmandu. In the year 2019 this service is no longer available, As I suppose, the company didn't run very well. 

If you wish to travel Nagarkot, you must take a private tour, or the budget options would be a local bus. If you are interested in a private trip to Nagarkot Bhakatapur from Kathmandu, It is available between USD 50-70 for up to 4 people in one car. Besides, if you like to add a night in Nagarkot, it will be roughly 30 for one night two days tour.  You can also tailor-make your plan including a hike,  guide, accommodation etc. If you require additional information about the private, please do not hesitate to contact us at -
