Bhaktapur

(4.2/5 based on 2,000+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, religious sites, sightseeing

Nepal's Cultural Gem

On a tour of Bhaktapur, an ancient city in the World Heritage-listed Kathmandu Valley, discover a rich tapestry of Nepalese culture and history. Its innumerable pagoda temples, antique buildings, and monuments, although somewhat damaged in the 2015 earthquake, still captivate visitors who make the journey to this vibrant city. Tour Bhaktapur's narrow, pedestrian-only streets to find traditional pottery, handicrafts, and the famous local yogurt. Celebrations light up the dusty city squares almost every month of the year, often with live music, dancing, and traditional rituals. With our online itinerary creator, Nepal vacations can be built around trips to Bhaktapur and other destinations in Nepal.

Where to stay

Peaceful and less crowded than Kathmandu, Bhaktapur lies close to the international airport, making it a good base for a Nepal vacation. You'll need to pay for a ticket to enter the city, but the proceeds from foreigners' visits help with reconstruction and restoration of Bhaktapur's countless historic buildings. Choose from a variety of accommodation options, most of them cozy, family-run guesthouses and inns situated in traditional buildings with modern amenities. Since vehicles are prohibited in Bhaktapur, plan to explore the tranquil town on foot. Fortunately, most of the hotels and guesthouses cluster around the historic center.
