Overview
What to Expect
This hiking tour starts around 7am as your private vehicle leaves Kathmandu and drives to Nagarkot Hill to watch one of the finest dawns over the strong Himalayas. On a crisp morning, you can see the scopes of Gosainkunda, Ganesh Himal, Mt. Manaslu and the Annapurna Mountains. The sun's beams first start to illuminate the sky, turning the snowcapped tops from dark to pink before the rising sun turns the snow a most splendid white. The scene is totally amazing.

After, appreciate a healthy lunch around 11am at one of the fine eateries at Nagarkot (included in cost of this trip). Around 12pm, your guide will lead you on the trail toward Changu Narayan. This trail goes through Brahmin and Tamang towns. Watch the general population as they homestead the terraced ranches that hold tight the sides of the slope sitting above the Kathmandu Valley. On sunny mornings, there are incredible perspectives of the Himalayas along this trail. 

The hike is around 3 to 4 hours to get to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Changu Narayan. Here, find a magnificent little Newari town where they make wood and stone carvings throughout hundreds of years. The most established sanctuary in the valley is on the slope in the town. The general population of the town is well disposed and obliging, showing genuine Newari neighborliness. 

Drive back to Kathmandu around 5pm by private vehicle to get dropped off at your hotel.

Krishna is really kind and he can tell you a lot about temples, Buddhism, Hinduism and the Nepalese and Newari culture. Beside the visit to the Changu Narayan Temple, which is one of the 7 UNESCO’s World Heritage sites in Khatmandu Valley, Krishna showed me around in Bhaktapur
