Changu Narayan is another beautiful place that is in close escort to Bhaktapur. This hill station somehow is more popular for the UNESCO World Heritage Site listed Changu Narayan temple than the natural beauty it occurs.
There is another popular hiking route and destination in this place besides the Changu Narayan temple. From Nagarkot via telkot and then Trishul Danda, one can reach the Changu Narayan temple. This one is the classic hiking trail of the Changu Narayan.
Besides, one can witness Ekadashi like celebrations on the premises of this temple. There is a museum too and the lively souvenirs shops up until the Changu Narayan temple is just adorable.
