We had to hike down to Changu Narayan Temple from Nagarkot; approx. distance to cover 10 kms. It's one of the most popular day hike from Kathmandu. Himal(Guide) explained us with two options; hiking for about 5 hrs or hiking for 2 hrs. As the spirits were high we opted for the first one. Driver dropped us to the point from where the hike starts and went to Changu Narayan Temple and waited there for us.
The hike started with passing through small villages; one can see the simple life of mountain people. Village people taming their sheep and goats. Mountain dogs being so lovable and fluffy; coming to our way to be loved and pampered. And when I got scared, seeing a big hen chasing the other hen for his life. It was hilarious. During the course we also encountered the local women's collecting woods and leafs and carrying back to their home on there back. Mountain life is so simple yet so difficult.
