Changunarayan Nagarkot hike is one of the best escape routes from Kathmandu Valley to breathe fresh air and stretch your muscles walking through beautiful countryside and the scenic Himalayas.
Changunarayan temple is one of the oldest temples dating back to 4th century and possesses a significant touch of typical Nepalese artifacts. Dedicated to Lord Vishnu, this temple was damaged during massive earthquake 2015 and still in renovation, but opened for visitors.
Nagarkot boasts majestic sunrise and sunset with panoramic views of Langtang and Everest range of mountains and popular for any local or tourist. The major highlight of this short hiking around Kathmandu Valley is to observe the typical lifestyle of countryside people walking past through small villages and farmlands to witness the Himalayas with glittering sunrise atop.
