By foot. Everything is within walking distance in Nagarkot and there are some lovely hikes around.
Nagarkot, often called a hill station, used to be the summer retreat for the royals. It offers a magnificent panaromic view of the Himalayas on a clear day. There are a few monasteries and temples around and village walks are recommended too. The first boutique resort built in traditional architecture, The Fort, offers an uncontested view with excellent accommodation and dining facilities.
