Additional Location Information
In the nearby surroundings lies the 'real' life of Nepal at your feet. Against a fairytale-like scenery, farmers work on the land, children go to school and the cattle passes you by. Here, the time appears to have stood still...
The village Sankhu once was an important trade post between Kathmanu and Lhasa. There are many remnants of the prosperous period between the 1300s-1500s. Also, there is a lot to be seen of the traditional Newari lifestyle, the largest population in this area. The traditions of the Newari go back centuries and live on in Sankhu. The village has many little streets and squares, where many shops and artefacts can be found. Together with a number of impressive temple complexes this makes Sankhu very much worthwhile to visit. You will get a taste of the real Nepal. Remember to check for any festivals during your stay which make for a most special experience.
Vajarayogini tempel is an easy 2 km hike lasting a 45 minutes from the bus parking lot and most enjoyable.
From your cottage, you will walk into the rice fields and further ahead a local market, temple or Buddhist monastery. There are many more traditional activities in Sankhu. Other lively cities such as Bhaktapur, Changu, Nharagot and Sundarijal are also easily accessible.
Take advantage of the many biking- and bicycle routes that crosses the surrounding, passing by beautiful temples that are not for no reason on the world inheritance list of Unesco
