Nepal's Cultural Gem
On a tour of Bhaktapur, an ancient city in the World Heritage-listed Kathmandu Valley, discover a rich tapestry of Nepalese culture and history. Its innumerable pagoda temples, antique buildings, and monuments, although somewhat damaged in the 2015 earthquake, still captivate visitors who make the journey to this vibrant city. Tour Bhaktapur's narrow, pedestrian-only streets to find traditional pottery, handicrafts, and the famous local yogurt. Celebrations light up the dusty city squares almost every month of the year, often with live music, dancing, and traditional rituals. Make the most of your holiday in Bhaktapur by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Nepal travel route planner.
