Trip Overview

The Nagarkot Changunarayan Hiking is a journey designed to explore the stunning hilly landscapes adorned with lush green forests and also the mesmerizing Himalayas all in a day’s work. in a hurry to reach the base camps of the majestic Himalayas most trekkers fail to acknowledge the hidden beauty held captive around the stunning Hills surrounding the Kathmandu valley.  The hiking trail takes us to the stunning town of Nagarkot from where we descend down towards Changunarayan Temple enjoying the stunning natural beauty. The 2 nights 3 days Chisapani Nagarkot Hike is an excellent hike around Kathmandu valley.

We begin the day with a pleasant drive heading towards the stunning hamlet of Nagarkot Changunarayan Hiking for the mesmerizing views of the sunrise. Built previously as a fort to monitor the Kathmandu Valley, the city itself commands excellent views of the Kathmandu valley.  And continues to attract hikers and trekkers alike with its pleasant atmosphere and stunning views. Located at an altitude of 2,175m the hamlet of Nagarkot is also a stunning Himalayan viewpoint with views of Mt. Everest (8,848m) alongside Annapurna, Manaslu region, Ganesh, Langtang, and Jugal Himalayan ranges. After taking in the stunning Himalayan panorama, we begin our hiking heading down towards Changunarayan Temple.

The trail is a pleasant one spreading across the Nepali flatlands.  Gradually ascending and descending to accommodate the steeper sections of the journey. Surrounded by stunning views of the enchanting lush green forests, we continue our journey finally reaching Changunarayan Temple. We then take time off to visit the temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu and pay our respects. The museum in the temple premise is also prime for exploration.  And houses several currencies and devices used in the ancient periods. After enjoying the tranquil environment surrounding the temple we make our way back to Kathmandu for the night.
