    Major Highlights of Nagarkot Sunrise View and Day hiking

    Changunarayan Temple 

    Changunarayan Temple is approximately seven kilometers far from east of Kathmandu. You can take a bus from Kathmandu to Bhaktapur and then another bus to reach the temple. A two-story pagoda-style temple with statues and carvings from long ago, Changu-Narayan Temple is dedicated to Lord Bishnu. It is thought to be the oldest Hindu temple still in operation in the Kathmandu Valley today after surviving damage in 1702 and 2015. Unquestionably, the Changunarayan Temple is a magnificent example of Licchavi-era art and architecture as well. The oldest artifacts, dating to 464 CE, were found in this temple and include inscriptions and sculptures. As a result, King Manadeva, one of the greatest kings of the Lichhavi dynasty, is believed to have found it.

      Best trek and the sunrise view in Nepal

The team of Luxury Holiday Nepal has arranged everything for the trip and they provide us with an amazing guide, who is pretty nice, knowledgeable, and friendly. the trekking journey is one kind of experience for us. After getting back to Kathmandu we still have a few days left so we decided to do a day trip to Nagarkot to witness the beautiful sunrise. The day was a nice hiking day with the best view of the morning sunrise and the surrounding of nature near Kathmandu. We just love what we did in Nepal and we will surely visit again. Once again thanks to the great team of LHN.
