Day 2

Dhulikhel is an ancient small hill town famous for being a well-preserved Newari town, mountain viewpoint, and hiking destination. But its popularity is fading as modernization takes its toll. It lies at the relatively low elevation of 1,550m/5,085, making it warmer than Nagarkot. The oldest area of the town, the southern part, is an assembly of fine old Newari houses, often occupied by 20 or more members of Newari families. They may not all have hot water or modern furniture, but they have their culture and a welcoming atmosphere. Their most valuable assets are the beautifully carved windows and doors, fine examples of traditional Newari craftsmanship.

Day 3

Panauti, situated at the confluence of the two rivers Rosi and Punyamati, has been regarded as an important religious site since very early times. In Nepali society, such rivers are considered to be sacred. A visit or just an ablution to such places enables the visitor to be freed from many sins and anxieties, as it is believed to be sacred. Moreover, it is also believed that at Panauti, in addition to aforesaid two rivers, a third river Lilawati also converges making it again a tri-junction called Triveni. However, the last one is said to be visible only to the sheers and the intellectuals. The presence of this at Panauti has added and remarkably enhanced its religious sanctity and popularity as well.
