The Bagmati Zone region
Our village lies in a superb, at the outskirts of Patan city. The village was thin populated before, now after the maoists insurgency, the population of village gone up. So we have mixed population from diverse ethnic and caste background. There are many open places, greenery in the area. People are simple minded. Many youths have gone abroad for employment. Only elderly, women, children are left over, as it is the case in far away remote villages of Nepal.
Our place lies in Kathmandu Valley. There are three cities in Kathmandu, i. e: Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan. Our village is accessible from three of the cities. It lies in the middle of these cities.
A decade ago, our village was virtually empty, having low population. We feel new and new wave of migration in our areas, so there are more new homes. People are living in harmony. This village is connected by roads from Bhaktapur, Patan and Kathmandu City. So people can go easily to these cities using local Transportation. A car / taxi can also easily come to our house.

"Wonderful holiday with a friendly family"
The house is beautiful with its resemblanes to Newar architecture. Family members are very nice and helfpul. The food we ate were local products. The rooms are very nice, decorated and well ventilated. Village people are very friendly. We could see whole Kathmandu valley from the top of the view tower.
Ravi also took us to hiking of the nearby attractive villages and we saw many things, different to our culture. I highly recommend to this holiday home, so that you can even go
to cultural tours and trekkings.
We would definately come back again to see more things with him in future.
