Bungamati and Khokana Half Day Tour: Situated beyond the southern belt of Ring Road inside the valley Bungamati is a small Newari village still abiding by its ancient tradition as a significant part of daily life. Very less influenced by the modern city just a few kilometers away, Bungamati exemplifies true heritage of the still living age-old culture and civilization. The journey to Bungamati starts with a vantage point where one can behold the entire village of Bungamati and Khokana. Walking down the lanes of Bungamati, you will pass through local Newari people busy working intricate designs in wood or stone on their way to creating many more beautiful artifacts practicing their crafts for the future generations to enjoy.
Continue to Khokana, which is known to have retained many traditional aspects of Newari life. It is famous for producing mustard oil. There is no central square, as in the Bungamati, but there is plenty of action in the main street and has a temple with two-tiered construction of interest, dedicated to Shekali Mai a mother goddess.
