The trail leads over a mountain crest, magnificent panoramic view, pine forest and Nepalese inhabitants. Kathmandu city is increasingly spreading up the surrounding hills. The uniqueness of the terrain, the diversity of ethnic groups and the beauty of both the peoples and the biotope in Himalayan countries make them a must for any hiker devotees. Nagarkot is a trendy visitor's choice at an elevation of 2175 meters above the sea level. Discover the great views of the Himalayas, including Annapurna, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Dorje Lakpa, Gauri Shanker and Everest ranges. The view from Nagarkot is like mountain flight; once the sun begins to rise from behind the Himalayas, it looks spectacular as the mountain changes its color. Our day hiking is leading to Changu Narayan; all the way riding of the hill passing through pine forest, Nepalese inhabitants. The Temple of Changunarayan situated at an altitude of 5000 ft on the hillock to the north of Bhaktapur, it is one of the oldest temples in Nepal.
