Trip Introduction

This area is located at the edge of the Kathmandu valley. It offers a rich insight into the lives, history, religion and daily existence of its inhabitants. The valley rim varies between 1000m and 2,200m. In the spring, early autumn and winter it offers wonderful mountain vistas, stretching from Everest in the east to Annapurna in the west.

The trek itself is not vigorous except on the first day where there is a long uphill haul on a winding path through the farm villages. After Chisapani the walk is on a gradual path where there is plenty of time to take in the wonderful landscapes and awesome scenery on the way to Nagarkot and our final destination at Changunarayan. Here you can see one of the most important ancient Temples perched on the hillock just above the Bhaktapur area. After a wonderful time in the mid hills you can continue with some optional sightseeing in Bhaktapur. Bhaktapur, a world heritage site, is the oldest city in the Kathmandu Valley and is rich with culture and Newar temple architecture. An hour drive brings you back to Kathmandu from here.
