Bhaktapur City is made up of three large squares filled with shrines, temples, and activities. Bhaktapur is an essential Newari city with some of the finest architecture in Nepal. In its heyday (14th-16th centuries) Bhaktapur was the most powerful kingdom of the Kathmandu Valley and remained capital for 300 years. Despite earthquakes and frequent rebuilding, Bhaktapur is one of the successful towns which has succeeded to retain authentic medieval feel, where neighborhood still practice center old ponds or tanks (built to store water for drinking, washing, and religious ceremonies) and performing it as a social focal point.

Local people in Bhaktapur are predominantly farmers and engaged in the traditional hand-crafts of pottery, metalwork, paintings and wood crafting which have been the major trade of the city and supported the city since its establishment from the 12th century. Results of man-made perfection not only did boost the economy of the city, but it converted the city into a service station; the major trade route between Tibet and India. Certainly, a fascinating place to explore!

Panauti City and lunch with a Local Family: Panauti used to be a commercial hub during the medieval period, but now, it is very much at its ease. Panauti City is renowned for its well-preserved backwater, fascinating and historic temples, and impressive Rana mansions built in Neoclassical Architecture.

There are three holy rivers in Panauti, Brahmayani, Roshi, and Punyabati. The name of the town was derived from the holy river, Punyabati. People of Panauti still operates under traditional beliefs, so if you are watching blacksmiths working then you are - also - witnessing the centuries old ‘living’ traditional values of Nepal. Traditional farmers and their beautiful rice terrace are other major highlights of Panauti.

Friendly city, Panauti celebrate diverse festivals with an enormous gusto. There are as many Buddhist Stupas as Hindu Temples in Panauti, both blended according to local’s artifacts.

Among many beautiful temples, related to either Hinduism or Buddhism, Hindu Temple i.e. Indreshwor Mahadev (12-13 century), which has single plinth base, pagoda type with three stories, three main gates & six tundals. The temple is dedicated to Shiva, the god of destruction in Hindu pantheon. The major, famous, festival that is celebrated only in 12 years is Makara Mela.

Boudhanath Stupa: Boudhanath Temple is the center and most pious land for Tibetan background, living, in Nepal, but it envelopes equal respect from every Nepalese population. It is one of the largest stupas, with the height of 36m, in the South Asia. The Stupa is located around the area of an ancient trade route for Tibetans, where Tibetan merchants took rest and offered prayers since centuries. Apparently, it is also a home for many Tibetan refugees those who entered into Nepal in 1950s, and decided to live around Boudhanath.

temples, built in various architectural manners. Patan Durbar Square is a home of numerous temples like Krishna Mandir, Bhimsen Mandir, Taleju Bell, Bhai Dega and many more, which also displays that Gods and Humans have always lived with each other since long-long time ago.

Tharu tribes, like many other tribes from all around the world, are tilting their interest to the western culture, and abandoning their very own costume. The major aim of this excursion is to make Tharus feel proud of their culture, and moreover, to preserve one of the indegenious cultures of Nepal from existing. We also try to preserve the culture by giving the local community an economical base for preserving it.

Cultural Dance Program: Tharu Dance is an eclectic way of expressing the significance of festivals, fields, and united community. The performers belong to Tharu tribe & from their forefathers. The folklore reveals their story with a pinch of salt that everyone will enjoy.
