The hike from Nagarkot to Dhulikhel is mostly down hill. In Nagarkot to Dhulikhel walk, there are very few options for food and water, so we recommend that you carry enough of both with you for the trek.We Can drive from Kathmadnu to Nagarkot in the morniong and head towards Club Himalaya. Below this hotel you will find a small walking trail which cuts across the hillside and takes you towards Rhonnie Bhangyang. The views of the Panckhal valley to your left are very good, and given clear weather you should again get memorable views of the mid Himalaya including Mt.Everest.
Follow the rugged little used jeep track until you come to a flat spot of land and couple of farm houses. This is Rhonnie Bhangyang. Follow the road straight, do not take the left or right turnings. Climb up a short sharp hill and arrive at an intersection with another jeep track. Take the left turn and follow this road along the ridge.
After about a kilometer, a small trail on the right takes you down into the next valley. follow the main jeep track back down into the valley below Nagarkot, you want to keep Nagarkot over your left shoulder. Follow the track steely downhill through the hillside which dotted with villages. You are aiming for a vague ridge between two valleys. You will pass through the villages of Kankre and Tanchok.
