A brilliant trek with Krishna and driver
Prompt start from our hotel at 8am. The driver expertly negotiated us through the traffic to Nagarkot. We were fantastically lucky because the sky was bright blue and we began to see stunning views of the Himalayas as we drove up the hills out of the valley. Next was the observation tower where we got almost uninterrupted views of the mountain range. It was absolutely fabulous that morning. The hike took us through some small typical villages and we met many local smiley people on the way. Most of the journey was downhill with only a small proportion climbing upwards. The hike was about 4 hours. At the end we visited the temple at Changunarayan having stopped for lunch of momos part way. Krishna was a very knowledgeable guide and was able to answer all our questions. He knew all about the Himalayas, about the local history, countryside, local way of life and all about the temple we visited. A very pleasant day out and Krishna had a good sense of humour and he made the day come alive.
