Bungmati Khokana Day Tour combined with longer treks or hikes, this day tour the ancient villages of Bungamati and Khokana, both of which are close to Kathmandu, will give you a real feel for how life goes on in and around the Kathmandu Valley.
Bungamati Khokana is a small Newari village in Lalitpur district of central Nepal, dating from the 6th century and still abiding its tradition as their significant part of life. It is one of the most traditional villages in the valley, with rows of brick houses and narrow streets paved with flagstones. This village has escaped influence from the modern city just a few kilometers away. It really shows the true beauty of the age-old culture and civilization of the Kathmandu Valley. Bungamati is also where one of the most popular gods of the valley, Rato Matsyendranath, resides year-round in a small temple located there.
The Rato Matsyendranath Festival is an important date in the festival calendar of Kathmandu Valley and is celebrated with much gusto and fanfare in at the end of April every year. You’ll be fortunate to witness it if your Nepal tour happens to be around that time!
Khokana Village is located 10 km south of Kathmandu city with that has also retained its individual tradition and culture. This is a tiny Newar Village with a reputation for two things: a unique harvesting process of mustard oil; and the local three-story temple. The community of Newar who live here are mostly dependent on agriculture, and much of their daily activities take place outside of their dwelling as they embrace nature.
