Kirtipur and Bungamati, Khokana Hiking

Days from

The classic day-hike in the southern Kathmandu valley rim land offers opportunity for a truly rural Nepalese cultural experience

Perched on twin hillocks and clinging to the saddle about 5 kms west to Kathmandu, Kirtipur has two satellite hamlets to the south, Panga and Nagaon. The history of the village dates back to the 12th century when it was an outpost of the Patan but later on became a separate kingdom. The kingdom was so strong then it was defeated the Most powerful king of the Nepalese history three times when he tried to unify it with Nepal. Remains of the fortified walls and part of the original 12 gates can still be seen. Beside a visit to the village, there are also some interesting religious sites such as the Bag Bhairav, Chlanchu Vihar etc, which offer a rich architectural perspective to the visitors.

After lunch in Kirtipur we then proceed to Khokana and Bungamati which are the ancient Newari villages dating back to 16the century. The people in Khokana are involved in the traditional oil making which is the main attraction of the village and the people in Bungamati are involved more in traditional wood carving which one can see in the historic places in and around Kathmandu valley.
