This temple was originally built in the 4th century, making it the oldest temple in the valley, and enjoys fantastic views over the hills towards the nearby city of Chhaling. It is a temple which is known for its beauty, location and age so its a must-see for those visiting the valley of Kathmandu. The struts of this two-tiered Vishnu temple depict the 10 incarnations in which Narayan destroyed evildoers. A 6th century stone statue shows the cosmic form of Vishnu, while another recalls the dwarf incarnation in which he crushed the evil King Bali. Garuda, the steed of Vishnu, kneels before the temple. 

Afterwards, embark on a 2-3 hour hike from Changunarayan to Telkot which will take you along a ridge which offers great views on Kathmandu Valley to the right and The Himalayas to the left.

Return to Bhaktapur and visit Durbar Square where you will find of the finest examples of Nepalese architecture.

Afterwards, explore the Royal Palace, Golden Gate and Palace of 55 Windows (which is hailed as the most significant piece of art within Nepal). Finally, visit The Nyatapola Temple, the highest temple in Kathmandu Valley where the views are, naturally, breathtaking!

Overnight in Bhaktapur. 
Day 3: Bhaktapur - Namobuddha Monastery
Drive to the little village of Namobuddha (approx. travel time: 1 hour 15 minutes). Despite its size, Namobuddha is hugely important to Buddhists, making it a fascinating to visit. Here, the skies feel clearer and the air is fresher while the surrounding mountains provide stunning trails and seemingly endless views.

Next, you will walk 10 minutes to the village of Kokana, passing the important shrine of Karya Binayak along the way. This village is famous for its mustard-oil manufacturing so you might want to seek out one of the village's traditional oil presses while you're here.
