Nepal // The Kathmandu Valley //

Walks from Changu Narayan


You can hike the 10km from Nagarkot to Bhaktapur via Changu Narayan, from where it’s also possible to walk or mountain bike to Sankhu, 5km to the northeast. This trail begins along the dirt road heading northeast from the Changu bus park (take the first fork on the left), though without a guide you may need to ask local help finding the way, and if the temporary bridge is down you’ll have to cross the Manohara River on foot – easy in the dry season, impassable after rain. A short cut leads down directly from the steps descending from the west side of the temple, then heads 1km north across the fields (make for the mobile phone mast) to the Sankhu road, via a footbridge over the river; frequent buses run along this road between Kathmandu and Sankhu.
