Quiet Days in Rural Nepal

You just need to try this tour, it was exceptional and true visit to a typical Newari village. Walking via the remote wilderness of Bungmati and Khokana is like stepping back in time where local people still live their tradition. We were fortunate enough to witness and be the part of their still living age old culture, beliefs and rituals. An opportunity to get a close look at Newari cultural life, worthy experience

Intriguing Glimpse into Village Life

We went to the Newari villages of Khokana, Bungmati and Bandipur where we got the first hand experience of the tradition and culture. It was very exciting and more than what I had read in books. The guide was very informative and tried his best in showing the Newari culture. The village was beautiful and peaceful and the fresh air rejuvenated us. People were so warm and welcoming. We visited some Newari houses and also tasted Choela offered by a friendly Newari woman. Had great time, I would recommend it to everyone who wants to see and feel the Nepali culture. It was indeed a delightful experience.
