haktapur is known by many names. It has been called Nepal’s Cultural Gem, A City of Devotees, and an open museum. This includes not just tangible built heritage, but everything that involves intangible practices that have been passed on from generation to generation. At Bhaktapur, you’ll be able to join colorful festivals, traditional dances, and the continuing life of the Newari community.
While you’re here, take advantage of the many cultural excursions. Luckily, there are also hostels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses that can already plan this for you or make it part of your stay.
