Ancient Bhaktapur is known as the ‘Place of Devotees’ and when the sun breaks each day, morning prayers are called, and the monks ritually make their way to the temple – it is easy to see why. What’s more, as pretty as Bhaktapur always is, there’s something extra special here at dawn when sunlight fills its age-old alleyways.
Heading off to enjoy the morning air, you’ll visit Bhaktapur’s temples, pottery workshops and scenic valley viewpoints too. Three peaceful hours later, a well-earned breakfast in one of Bhaktapur’s 700-year old heritage buildings rounds things off nicely.
You can add this experience to any tailor-made itinerary visiting the Kathmandu Valley.
