    Bandipur village

    View near silkworm factory

    A hilltop village with good fresh air and hardly a vehicle in sight. The vehicles stop outside the town and only a lorry or two are allowed into the town square.

    Hike down the mountain and discover a cave which has not been fully explored.

    There's also a silkworm factory in the village where you can see mulberries and even eat them.

    by yumiyun Written May 12, 2003

    Besides the famous Pashiputhinath and Swayambhunath, there are many other temples in Kathmandu Valley area. Explore the small streets and lanes. Many of temples found in this area are very old and you can admire the intricate or colorful design on the exterior.

    Hindu temples above Pashupatinath

    Hindu shrines above Pashupatinath

    Most of the people, pilgrims and tourists, are to be found along the Bagamati River or in the temples on the western side of the river. Steps lead up from the eastern side of the river, too, and by going up you get into another warren of little temples that are much quieter and more serene. Lots of monkeys will keep you company as you wander about.

    Surrounding velleys and mountains

    by babar_1 Written Mar 3, 2012

    You may find many terrace fields and green valleys once you come out of Kathmandu towards Pokhara by road. There are forests, rivers and mountains everywhere. People live in harmony with nature.

    Between the villages

    Many small villages, like Bungamati and Kokhana, are worth visiting. You can walk from one to another, it's only one hour or so. Interesting sights and friendly people will welcome you, for sure...!

    When in Kathmandu, you should explore the city to have a feel on the actual daily life. Although the city is dusty, lively and chaotic, it is quite safe to walk around.
