Another alternative is to keep trekking from Nagarkot to Changunarayan (that day or the next) and then drive back to Kathmandu.
From Changunarayan you can walk or drive back down to Bhaktapur (8km) and explore this medieval town with its rich cultural history. Check complete independent Chisapani Nagarkot Hike Information.
