We can also drive from Changu Narayan to Nagarkot (if you wish) or if you are walking and wish to stop walking the journey can be broken at any time and can be undertaken by vehicle.
We start the trip from Kathmandu after breakfast and drive to Bhaktapur and walk or drive further Changu Narayan and hike to Nagarkot where we serve you lunch and drive you back (after sunset in the evening) to Kathmandu.
Or if you wish we can also cover up trip with the sunrise. The only draw back to this option is that you will have to get up early in the morning (at least 2 and half hour before of sunrise so that we reach there on time).
