Khokana, a traditional and tiny Newari village eight kilometers south of Kathmandu (on the outskirts of Patan), which has its own history and has retained its tradition and culture. It is a living museum and recalls medieval times. The farming community of Newars who live here are mostly dependent on agriculture and much of their daily activities take place outside of their dwellings.
10km from Kathmandu to south stands a small but graceful Bungamati village which dwell hundreds of master wood carvers and sculpture producers. Visitors often encounter with smiling teeth and welcoming hand of artisans working in their house, offering their artifacts. Regardless of the rapid changes in lifestyle of the urban population and the globalized way of living, the Bungamati locals have remained untouched by modern waves and are living the life that they know best –simply rural — from the past several centuries.
On a spur at the southwestern side of the Kathmandu valley, 4 kilometer from the city, is the town of Kirtipur. This ancient town is historically significant for it stood in the way of King Prithivi Narayan Shah’s quest to unity Nepal in the late 18th Century. It’s eventual defeat paved the way for the conquering of Kathmandu Valley by the Shah dynasty, which still reigns to this day Kritipur is also the setting of colorful festivals of the Newars, notably the Indreni Jatra that takes place each year between the month of December and January. This is a colorful occasion that lasts for three days.
Carved out of a hillside, the Chovar gorge is the only outlet for all the waters of the valley. Legend has it that Manjushree, an ancient saint cut the mountain with his magical sword, to drain out the water from the Kathmandu Valley which was then just a lake. There is a small but picturesque temple of Adinath on the top of the hill with a magnificent view of the snow capped peaks. Just beyond the gorge is a temple of lord Ganesh.
