Travel Blogs from Bhaktapur
Bhaktapur, the ancient Newar town of Kathmandu; a culture and atmosphere of it's own. It's a city caught in the folds of time with red brick streets and ancient clay brick houses. The doorways are small and the streets are wide with alleyways spiraling off anyway you turn. More so than Pokhara, there abides a mixture of old customs and traditional …
Heading to bed the night before with a full moon and clear sky we were hopeful to see a Himalayan sunrise from Nagarkot but it was not to be.. Damn fog and cloud! No view of the Himalayans this morning as we hoped as we were literally in the clouds.. but hey ho..we enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the Eco lodge and set off for our third day of hiking …
Arrived into Kathmandu after a hellish 2 days travel at 5am. Could not bear waiting for another bus so we found a taxi to Bhaktapur which is 18km East of Kathmandu and used to be the capital of Nepal. It is a UNESCO site as it is full of old temples and squares dating back to 9th to the 17th Century.
We arrive at 6am and set about to find …
... I asked later whether it would be possible for the women to be seen separately, but this wasn't considered an option. I suppose if you have so many women to see and only one doctor working with medical students this would be the only option. At least the doctor could see what the medical students were doing, but I noticed they didn't countersigned their records...something else they will probably consider further down the line. I did however, ...
... Four of us walked back down to the main road to catch the micro bus into the centre of Kathmandu. The experience of the micro bus is still just as entertaining and the head count was 23 passengers in a 12 seat bus.
We walked from the bus stop to another orphanage not far from Durbar Square and the location for the preparation of the nights meal.

TravelPod Member ReviewsGanesh Guest House Bhaktapur
Stan found this place called Ganesh Guest House situated in the heart of Bhaktapur and within minutes of Durbar, Taumadhi, and Dattatreya square. The couple who owned the place, Babi (the wife) and Ganesh (the husband, who found it easier to take on this name) were more hospitable and genuine than any other managers or owners we have met. Ganesh even went above and beyond to offer our friend, Netta, a room all to herself because the dormitory room she was in now had three chinese guys sleeping there too. That was the deal with dormitory rooms, but for the same (cheap) price he offered her a room all to herself so she could sleep comfortably. This kindness blew my mind.
We planned only one day in the Guest House but stayed four nights instead. Our room was cheap and small with three beds lining the floor. The bathroom was tiny with a toilet, sink, and shower that got everything wet when washing up. I came out of the bathroom laughing hysterically a fews times because the water from the toilet would pour out the back when flushing and while using the sink the pipe would spray your leg before you realized that you were soaked. But it was the perfect traveling experience and I would advise it to any traveler visiting Nepal.
