Itinerary Details

As Kathmandu urbanises, lifestyles are changing in the suburbs, from agriculture to other trades. We experience this phenomenon in this 4 hours GUIDED WALK of the twin villages of Bungamati and Khokana, south of the valley. Two little hidden spots, off the beaten track, surrounded by amazing landscapes.

Come and discover the peacefulness of those villages, the smiles of their inhabitants, and the beauty of their architecture. Meet the people during their only free day of the week, assist to their laundry ritual, discover a workshop making the traditional Indian Sari and see some woodcarving experts in action! On the way, we will see a beautiful Hindu temple, very important for the region. Some devotees might even be singing and worshipping while we pass by.

After this tour, sit down, relax and enjoy a delicious local lunch. Dal Bhat? Momos? What will the chef make for you today?

Then let’s hit the road again to visit a Disability hostel, which runs a roadside coffee shop with deaf baristas. Enjoy this unique encounter with some tea/coffee and homemade pancakes.  As we head back to the city, we stop by Patan and a coffee boutique before we drive back to Thamel.

This day trip fits perfectly for children, as the walk through the two villages is not strenuous. Did you know that on Saturday, Nepali children are playing outside in the sun as they don’t go to school? Interesting to see, and even to join in!
