This temple is located at the end of a long ridge that runs well into the Kathmandu Valley. It is a temple enriched with Pagoda styled architectures. Numerous monuments you get to know about there.
From Changunarayan, heading to the way, we reach to Nagarkot which is a beautiful scenario. From here, we closely get to attach our soul and body to stunning mountains and greenery nature climbing an interesting tower located there from where mountains like, Mount Everest, Ganesh Himal, Manaslu, Langtang, Dorje Lakpa, Gaurishankar and many more can be viewed.
Now from Nagarkot, we head towards Dhulikhel whose trail descends to nature beautifully decorated with National Flower of Nepal, Rhododendron. View of rows of snow capped Peaks and ancient residents of Nepal, Newari people and its artistic monuments are the major traits of the place.
After a time spend at Dhulikhel, we head towards Namobuddha, a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery. It is situated at 1750m. Here,there is a special Buddhist Legend about Kind Mahasattva offering his body to a hungry tigress at this place which makes Namo Buddha a holy site for Buddhist residential people. This Buddhist monastery situated at a hilltop is best suited to sight a panoramic views of mountains. You could feel so lucky to view the mountains from Namobuddha hilltop, incase you miss to view the nature from Nagarkot view tower because of some weather forecast imbalance.

Trekking Informations

Trekking in Nepal can be done by all levels of trekkers; if they think themselves fit and have strong desire. In general, trekking in Nepal can be graded into five levels according to route features and elevation. Some trekking routes are combined with higher level of elevation which requires some different standard of physical fitness and acclimatization or rest day. We advise you to choose a trek that is fit for your capabilities and present health condition. Morning and evening walks, jogging, stretching, meditation and regular light exercise will help you for the trek.

Trekking can be ideal for any age group and it is upto 3000m of elevation and duration will be about not more than 10 days. It is the easiest treks, tours and walking in a day is not exceeding more than 5 hours, but it is depend upon to your walking speed. These types of trek also allow plenty of opportunities to view the Himalayas and encounter local culture.

Trekking duration is about two weeks long covering elevation from 3000m to 4500m. This level of trek requires sound physical fitness conditions and about 6-7 hours of daily hiking capabilities. This type of trek involves mixture of some longer and shorter hike and trails can be rough, steep and have many ups and downs with some exposure.

Trekking involves up to 5000m or few meters up level of trails with side trips to higher elevations. Considered to be harder, therefore, preparation for fitness and good health conditions are essential. As it is above 5000m and demands good health condition and physical fitness, we do not recommend it for those who suffer from asthma, high blood pressure, heart disease or complicated medical conditions.

Trekking is very strenuous trekking as it requires mountaineering skills and knowledge. The elevations range from 5000m to 6000m and approximately 7 to 10 hours walking a day for the trekking in Nepal. It covers very remote areas, traveling over snow-covered passes at an altitude of up to 6000 meters. You may need to use axes and crampons to cross the pass when there is heavy snow.

The challenging trekking grade is limited to those with an excellent level of personal experience and fitness of an outstanding sense of humor and high tolerance levels. It is challenging trek, which is mountaineering level and above the height of 6000m. This type of trek needs 16- 28 days more for going the trekking on the higher altitudes. During the trek you may have to cross the snow – covered passes in very remote areas. You need to learn some mountaineering skills before going to this trek.
