Changunarayan and Nagarkot Day Tour

1 Day

Nagarkot has gained immense popularity for its awe inspiring sunrise and sunset views. Only 30 km east of Kathmandu at an altitude of 2,175m, this little town enjoys cool mountain breezes and one of the best panoramic views of the Himalaya, stretching from Dhaulagiri in the west all the way past Everest to Kanchenjunga in the east. This incredible view is the prime attraction that brings hordes of visitors to Nagarkot. An easy 4-hour walk from Nagarkot through the local villages and rice fields takes us to one of the oldest temples in the valley, Changu Narayan.

Situated on a small hillock overlooking the Kathmandu Valley, this temple is 12km. east of Kathmandu. The temple is decorated with magnificent art works in metal and wood.
