This village is famous for religious Buddhist monasteries, , Shesnarayan temple, Bajra Yogini temple, Gorakhnath temple and Guru Padmasambhava meditation cave.

The best way to visit the Pharping is to join other pilgrims on the clock-wise pilgrimage circuit (parikrama in Nepalese, kora in Tibetan)
Downhill south of Pharping, there is Dakshinkali temple which is dedicated to Kali, a blood thirsty incarnation of goddess Parvati, consort of Shiva. The name Dakshinkali is composed of the word “dakshin”, meaning “south”, and the name “Kali” meaning “black female”, and refers to the temple´s position in a spectacular river gorge of Black female goddess of south.

It has an amazing story concerned with the Buddha which is commemorated by an ancient stone slab and a Stupa with the all-seeing eyes of Lord Buddha. This holy land is very relaxing and easy places.

On Return visit Bhaktapur (Bhaktapur tour is famous to see this thing Pottery and weaving are its major traditional industries. Sometimes it’s best to take a break from temples and sit back and watch the unchanging rituals of daily life: The laying out of grain to dry in the sun, families collecting water or washing under communal taps, children playing simple games, dyed yarns flapping in the breeze or potters at work throwing clay are the major attraction of these site. Though a massive earthquake of 1934 destroyed many temples, bahals (monastery courtyards), and residences, the city is still a living proof of the highest craft standards in this part of the world. As the visitor wanders through narrow brick paved streets, many alleys will show hidden shrines and statues)
Tour of very ancient village near Kathmandu, Bungmati and Khokana and Kirtipur.
Bungamati and Khokana are the ancient Newari village (of the 16th century) alike Kirtipur but a visit to Khokana and Bungamati is a bit different to the visit to Kirtipur. The people in Khokana are involved in the traditional oil making which is the main attraction of the village and the people in Bungamati are involved more in traditional wood carving which one can see in the historic places in and around Kathmandu valley. This is the perfect “day hiking” trip in Kathmandu.
Kirtipur is a magnificent exception to the usual Newari settlements. Perched on twin hillocks and clinging to the saddle about 5 kms from Kathmandu. Kirtipur has two satellite hamlets to the south, Panga and Nagaon. The history of the village dates back to the 12th century when it was an outpost of the Patan but later on became a separate kingdom. The kingdom was so strong then it was defeated the Most powerful king of the Nepalese history three times when he tried to unify it with the Nepal.
