    During your excursion, first you will walk through the narrow streets of Bungamati exploring typical local houses with carved windows and doors. Bungamati is also home to Machhandranath, considered as the patron god of Patan city. Annual Machhandranath chariot procession from Patan to Bungamati is a major festival held in the valley. Most of the people in this village engage in traditional wood carving and sculpting.

    After visit, you can walk or drive to Khokana village. You will visit Karya Binayak temple, which is on the way. The walk from Bungamati to Khakana is through the farmlands where you can witness ancient farming technique and daily life of the local people. Most of the people in Khokana are farmers, hence this village is often known as “Farmers Village of Kathmandu valley”. Khokana is also popular for its ancient way of harvesting and preparing Mustard oil. Windows and balcony of houses decorated with chili, garlic and onion garlands.

    Your tour ends with a drop-off to your hotel.
