Day Trip-Classic Newari Village – Bungmati to Khokana

Tour Information

A classic Newari village, Bungmati has rows of brick houses lining streets paved with flagstones. The village is the winter residence of the Rain God, and is famous for the many skilled woodcarvers who live here. Near Bungamati is another ancient Newari village, Khokana, which has a well-earned reputation for its mustard oil and traditional oil pressing methods. If you come across somebody with a weathered face carrying two tin drums hanging at the two ends of a pole across his shoulders in the old marketplaces of Kathmandu, it is likely that he is from Khokana and in town to sell mustard oil. A day exploring these two villages will allow you to witness traditional life in the Kathmandu Valley.
