Tour Description:

In the morning you will be picked up by our driver and personal guide at your hotel. We will start today's tour by driving to Khokana

We drive south until we reach Khokana. Khokana is a small Newari Village located just 6 kilometres from Patan. In Khokana traditional craftsmanship still takes an important role. Villagers can often be seen spinning, winnowing and crushing mustard seeds. Especially the latter is what Khokana is most famous for, it's mustard oil. The village has a broad street leading into its centre. On the left side the three storey Shree Rudrayani temple can be seen.

After exploring Khokana we will walk to Bungmati. This is an approximately 20 minutes walk through the fields on the road that divides the agricultural land. Bungmati, just like Khokana, is a Newari village where traditional life still can be seen. The village houses the typical Newari buildings and has an interesting main square where one can view the Ganesh Temple and the Machhindranath Temple.
