Sankhu Nagarkot Changunarayan is an excellent hiking tour on the outskirts of the Kathmandu Valley. We can see the panoramic views of the mountains, Jungle, Local village, Landscape, Sunset & Sunrise.

Sankhu is also known as the Eighty Siddhas as there are four of five caves where the siddhas of India are said to have stayed. One of the caves is also said to have been the practice cave of Nagarjun and an image of the great master which was originally in the cave has been taken outside and placed some distance away.

Explore the beautiful hills of Nagarkot situated on the east of the Kathmandu valley with  the breathtaking Himalayan sun as it crests the snow-capped mountains.

Today the early morning is featured by a spectacular sunrise view over the Himalaya. The first rays of the sun gradually colored the glowing mountains from pink, gold and to the sparking silver white.
