Nagarkot Sunrise Tour with Sallaghari-Changunarayan Hiking
Min Group Size
Escape away from the commotions of Kathmandu life with this Nagarkot-Sallaghari-Changunayaran Tour.
Situated in a peaceful atmosphere surrounded by green forests, Nagarkot is one of the most lively places around Kathmandu. Nagarkot sunrise tour offers travelers a serene beauty of the snow-capped Himalayas, including the Gaurishanker Himal, Ganesh Himal, Sisapangma, and Annapurna mountain range.
Then we start our trek passing pleasant green meadows along the way first to reach Sallaghari to end our trek in Changnarayan. Changunarayan, a municipality in Bhaktapur District, is part of the urban agglomeration of the Kathmandu Valley. The municipality was created by merging the former Village development committees Old-Changunarayan, Chhaling, Duwakot, and Jhaukhel in 2014. The municipality of Mahamanjushree Nagarkot was then merged into Changunarayan in 2017.
The municipality also houses the UNESCO World Heritage Site: The Changu Narayan Temple. This temple is dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu and considered the oldest temple in Nepal. It’s a peaceful and lovely destination that travelers must visit while in Bhaktapur.
On this tour, you can enjoy an early morning panorama over the world-renowned peaks from Nagarkot before a scenic hike to Changu Narayan. This is perfect for those who are short of time and want a glimpse of the beautiful mountain ranges and a break from the hustles of Kathmandu.
