After early morning hotel pickup from your hotel, relax on the ride to Nagarkot, where you’ll have a chance to view the world-famous sunrise panorama over the iconic mountain chain.Then, prepare to stretch your legs with a gentle trek through local villages and terraced hillsides. You’ll follow your guide on a smooth, downhill hike to the UNESCO-listed temple of Changu Narayan, a hidden gem that’s often overlooked by visitors.
On the way, you’ll pass by red-brick Tamang and Newari homes, getting a slice of local life that most tours miss. You’ll even have the opportunity to stop and sample local delicacies by the tiny, family-run eateries that are scattered en route. Arriving at the temple, you’ll get a one-of-a-kind peek at the local artisans that are keeping stone and wood-carving traditions alive.
Your tour ends with drop-off back at your departure point.
