Iwent on this hike today and it was brilliant. My guide Purus was great. The trip was well organised and despite the very muddy paths we got to our destination in one piece.
Following a hotel pick up at 7:30am, you will be transferred to Sankhu/ Changunarayan by a private car. Nagarkot is located in Bhaktapur District at an altitude of 2170m, 32 km far from the heart of Kathmandu.
You will reach Sankhu/ Changunarayan temple around 9am. Start hiking from Sankhu to Nagarkot for 3 to 4-hours, about 4km uphill. Hike through Telkot Village to see panoramic views of mountains from Nagarkot including Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Annapuna, and the Langtang mountain ranges.
