Nagarkot Sunrise Hike From Kathmandu

Watch the sunrise over Himalayan peaks. Hike from Nagarkot to Changunarayan Temple, listening to the forest come alive as a new day dawns.

See the early morning light play on distant peaks, including Mount Everest and other giants.

Pass beneath pine and oak and alongside colorful rhododendrons, traveling downhill between timeless Newari villages.

After a few hours you will arrive at Changunarayan Temple. This stunning temple is believed to have been built as long ago as 323 A.D., making it one of the oldest temples in Nepal. Inspect the temple’s wonderful carvings before heading back to Kathmandu.
