Nagarkot has a population of 4571 and 931 houses. It's at an elevation of 7000, which you can feel. You can see 8 of the 13 Himalayan ranges located in Nepal, which is amazing.
Little did I know...
My first foray into Nagarkot involved trying to find the ATM that was "right by the hotel," and then "at the bus stop." This meant a mile and a half away by foot and several blocks away from the bus stop. So I wandered aimlessly saying hello to random children and taking pictures of goats and beautiful views.
I eventually found it tucked behind a restaurant. It was miraculous and I was able to pay for my hotel.
I also safely walked a couple miles on a nature trail by myself. I was all alone and survived. (Sorry mom.)
Posing for the camera, as usual, when in reality, I was dying of altitude-related breathing issues. Hiking around was a LOT harder there than in Washington.
