Travel by helicopter and land directly on Club Himalaya's helipad, just a few steps away from the main building. Helicopter flights take passengers from Nagarkot to Langtang and back. Mountain flights are not to be missed. The helicopters seat five passengers and costs amount to USD2000-2500 per helicopter.
There's plenty to do at Club Himalaya. Be it mountain viewing, day excursions, bird watching or pony riding, we bring you as close to nature as you want to be.
Be prepared for a dazzling view of the Himalayas while you are at Nagarkot. Few resorts can boast a 360-degree view as good as Club Himalaya's. On a clear day, you see stretched before your very eyes five of the world's ten highest peaks: Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and Manaslu. Other visible mountains and ranges include Langtang, Gauri Shankar, Ganesh, Annapurna, and Dorje Lakpa. Make sure to catch a dawn or dusk view of the panorama: truly breathtaking. Views are clearest between October and March
360 degree view
Strap on your backpack and head out to some truly amazing places. UNESCO World Heritage Sites Bhaktapur and Changu Narayan are just a few hours' walk or a short drive away. Bhaktapur, the third-largest city in the Kathmandu Valley, remains much the way it was in medieval times. Home to some of the oldest and most famous Nepali temples, the Golden Gate, the legendary Palace of Fifty-five Windows, and Potters' Square, the historical city of Bhaktapur is well within reach from Club Himalaya.
Perched on a hilltop, Changu Narayan is the oldest and holiest temple to Lord Vishnu in the Kathmandu Valley and is only a two hour walk from the resort. Sankhu, four hours away, is an old Newari village with well-known temples. Also four hours away is the Gokarna Golf Course, whose area is one of the last pristine forests in Kathmandu. For all day excursions, Club Himalaya provides lunch packs, transportation and local guides on charge.
Nepal, just one percent of the world's land mass, is home to 10% of the world's birds… that's more than 800 species! Come see if you can find some of these birds in Nagarkot! Take an early morning bird watching trip; binoculars and guides provided.
Take advantage of the Windy Hills atop which Club Himalaya is situated: put a kite in the air and see it soar above the valley. Kite flying can be done year-round from our open deck or Phulchowki Terrace. Kites and instructors are available on request. In September 2003, Club Himalaya hosted kite-flying competition 'Changa Chait,' which will be a yearly event.
Cycle around Nagarkot or bike down to Bhaktapur on a mountain bike, available on hire (NRs. 200 per use) from our parking lot every morning.
Three Mustang Mountain Ponies are available to take you on a ride around our premises, on a trip into the town of Nagarkot, further uphill to the tower at the top of Nagarkot, or even to Changu Narayan. Costs range from NRs. 150-500.
Club Himalaya is an ideal location for conferences and receptions. With a large meeting room, a library, a garden, and a view point, we offer a variety of settings for your varied needs.
