Panauti is an old Newari settlement, which is 32 kms Southeast of Kathmandu. It has some the most interesting in the valley and is set on the confluence of two rivers.  The village also boasts one of the only two known pre-17th century structure of Mahadev temple. Apart from other many temples it is a pleasure to wander the town's brick paved streets to view the magnificently carved rest houses, stupas and stone water taps.

We drive all the way from Kathmandu to Panauti which is 35 kms southeast of Kathmandu and takes approx. 90 minutes of driving through Arniko Highway and village. The road to and from Panauti passes through the terraced rice fields.

We walk 90 minutes through rice fields or drive through highway to Dhulikhel for refreshments. After the refreshments we visit some of the interesting places in Dhulikhel such as Shiva temple and around, & drive you back to Kathmandu
