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. Khokana is a small village in which 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 on the road dividing 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.

Bungmati

Before starting our sightseeing tour in Patan we will enjoy a typical newari lunch in one of the local restaurants. The Patan Durbar Square is also known as Lalitpur Durbar Square.

Patan Durbar Square is home to the former Patan Royal Family. Main attractions at this square include the Krishna temple with its 21 golden pinnacles, Rudra Varna Mahavihar; the Buddhist monastery which houses the local treasures and the central courtyard; Mul Chowk.

From here on we will drop you at your hotel.
