Surrounded by ceramics drying in the sun, you can watch skilled artisans craft their wares and even try your hand at the pottery wheel under the tutelage of the locals. One of the joys of staying in a hotel in Bhaktapur Kathmandu is getting lost in the old city's maze of narrow alleys. These hidden pathways lead to traditional Newari homes, artisans' workshops, and charming courtyards.
Indulge in Incredible Nepali Cuisine from the Best Hotel in BhaktapurBhaktapur is world-renowned for its Newari cuisine, which includes a variety of spicy flavors and meaty dishes, and although you can head to the on-site restaurant in your Kathmandu boutique hotel, it would be a shame to miss trying local specialties like ‘Yomari’ steamed dumpling and ‘Bara’ fried lentil cake, which are locally believed to bring good fortune, from one of the local eateries. Innumerable restaurants and cafés in Bhaktapur serve delicacies like these, each one offering a genuine taste of the region. Bhaktapur is a relatively small city, one of the smallest in all of Nepal in fact, and the best way to get around is on foot, by bicycle, or if you are feeling particularly brave, by motorbike. Major attractions including Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Dattatreya Square, and Nyatapola Temple which are a short stroll from your hotel in Bhaktapur Kathmandu as are the many narrow alleys where you can take a cup of refreshing Nepali tea with the locals while picking up all manner of artisanal pottery, handicrafts, and souvenirs for when it is time to head home.
