Suitable for:
Adventurers
Hikers

Bhaktapur is known to virtually every tourist who has visited Nepal. Even the Changu Narayan temple is visited by people from time to time. A quite interesting option is to combine them into one trip and not take a taxi between them, but walk through the Nepalese countryside. It's about 6 kilometers and basically an easy route, but an offline map on a mobile phone is of course useful

Descent down the hill

Changu Narayan Temple stands on a hill, so when you walk it from east to west, then start descending through the forest to the south. Along the way you will meet a number of beautiful trees arranged for resting places

Nepalese company

Maybe we are just lucky, or they are around the barracks, it is a common training here, in any case, perhaps a whole company of soldiers passes us in full field

Agricultural landscape under Changu Narayan

After leaving the forest, you will continue to Bhaktapur through the open agricultural landscape

Village development between Bhaktapur and Changu Narayan

The road leads between fields and we meet huge villas, but also really poor corrugated iron dwellings

Sacred trees

Sacred trees are definitely one of the attractions on this walk.

Hard work by local women

Some of the costs that pull women here on their backs and heads are really huge

Nepali grandmother

We are lucky and meet an old woman in typical clothes as she grinds a sickle

Kaolin slopes

In addition to the fields, another interesting feature of this walk is the exposed slopes from which the local quality clay for burning bricks is mined. From Chang Narayan, the ridge is less than 300 meters higher than the surrounding landscape

Small brickyard

Dozens of small brickyards are so typical of the Kathmandu Basin

Jhaukhel

The closer we get to Bhaktapur, the life and traffic become thicker and the hike is no longer so interesting

Landfills in riverbeds

Not far from Bhaktapur, a small river passes by, which, like almost everywhere, functions more like a small landfill, which is quite a big ecological problem in Nepal. Then just cross one busy road and you are in historic Bhaktapur
