Detail Itinerary

  • Day 1You will be picked up from your hotel at 8am. Our day starts with one and half hour drive to Nagarkot Hilltop at 2100m where we stop for superb view of mountain range include Annapurna range, Manaslu range, Ganesh himal range, Langtang range, Jugal range, Rolwaling range, Mahalangur range (Everest range) and Numbur range with views of the Kathmandu valley and Shivapuri National Park.
    From here we start the hike descend gradually through the terraced fields, forest and local Tamang village. The traditional houses are built with local stone and mud by local craftsmen. First we hike through primarily an attractive culture and tradition then the trail becomes more natural as it follows the ridge rich in deciduous forest. The Himalayas emerge in the distance totally isolated and peaceful. It's an easy gradual downhill walk on fairly level paths. It's approximately 4 hours to Changunarayan, the oldest pagoda style Hindu temple in Nepal. After having our lunch we explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site Changunarayan Temple. This shrine is dedicated to Lord Visnu and held in special reverence by the Hindu people. This temple is considered to be the oldest temple in the history of Nepal.
    Once experiencing the fascinating day hike in Kathmandu from Nagarkot to Changunarayan, we complete the day tour with a vehicle ride back to Kathmandu.
    You will be escorted back to your hotel at around 5-6pm
