Nagarkot Changu Narayan Temple Day Hiking

We take a one-hour drive early in the morning to Nagarkot located 32 km east of Kathmandu Valley at an altitude of 2100m. Locals believe it to be one of the best places to watch the morning sun as it caresses Mt. Everest and the ever-soaring Himalayas. We then enjoy an authentic breakfast in the hills of Nagarkot, descend further and pass through beautiful villages with locally-built stone houses painted with ochre. After walking for 3-4 hours, we reach the Changu Narayan Temple, a UNESCO world heritage site, where we are greeted by idols over 1000-years-old. We then end our journey by driving back to Kathmandu.

    Stop At: Nagarkot, Nepal

    Nagarkot is a village in central Nepal, at the rim of the Kathmandu Valley. It’s known for its views of the Himalayas, including Mount Everest to the northeast, which are especially striking at sunrise and sunset. The surrounding scrubland is laced with trails and home to many butterflies.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Changu Museum, Mandir Walkway, Changunarayan 44600 Nepal

    The Changu Museum, which has been in operation for 11 years and is the only private museum in the country, not only preserves some of the most astounding and eccentric relics in Nepal, but also focuses on the history and origins of Changunarayan itself. Changunarayan, a short drive from Kathmandu, is nestled on a hilltop between Bhaktapur and Nagarkot. The main draw of the village is the temple located at the top of a long ascent of brick steps that cuts through the neat and orderly town, which is named as one of Nepal’s seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Changu Narayan, Bhaktapur Nepal

    Changu Narayan is the name of the deity enshrined in the Changu Narayan Temple, located near the Changunarayan Municipality in Bhaktapur. The temple is one of the oldest Hindu temples of the valley, and is believed to have been constructed in the 5th century. The temple is considered to be the oldest temple in which the shrine is dedicated to Lord Vishnu.
