About Sankhu to Nagarkot hiking

Nagarkot hiking gives trekking experience for long and complex or moderately difficult trekking in the Himalayas. It is the best trek for the trekkers who have short holidays and want to do hiking. Hiking to Nagarkot not only gives a hiking experience, it includes the culture and tradition embedded in the ethnic newar community of Kathmandu and Bhaktapur districts.

Sankhu Nagarkot hiking starts from the paved road of Sankhu. Passing Dhalankot and small newar village you will reach Panchmeshwori temple on the bank of Salinadi river. The river Salinadi is holy river of Hindu where the ancient historical character Chandrawati, wife of King Navaraj has droned throughout a year. According to holy book Shree Swostani, the river has stopped flowing until Chandrawatii remain drowned in the river and start flowing as soon as the lady was taken out from the river.
