Bhaktapur, to the east of Kathmandu and easily reachable in a day trip, boasts another impressive concentration of medieval palaces, courtyard monasteries (bahals) and monumental squares – all in high Newari style. Despite being Nepal’s third city, it’s a much more easygoing destination thanks to the absence of traffic from its historic core. Wandering the pretty cobbled streets around Durbar Sqaure, look out for traditional potters’, weavers’ and wood-carvers’ workshops, and local people spreading raw rice to dry in the sun (Bhaktapur’s other name in Nepali is ‘Bhadgoan’, or ‘City of Rice’).
