Day Hike - Sanga to Panauti
We will conclude our hike in a Newar community, Panauti. It is a small, but a beautiful Newari town. Local folklore mentions Panauti was an offering from a King of Bhaktapur to his sister as a dowry gift. Surrounded by green hills and holy rivers, this spiritual town is full of, both, Hindu and Buddhist temple. For such reasons, Panauti is considered as a hidden-gem of Nepal. In Panauti, we will have a lunch in Panauti Community Homestay. Established by the local women of Panauti, Panauti Community Homestay is a paradigm of successful women empowerment/entrepreneurship in Nepal. In community Homestay, we will spend some tea-time with a local host family. It is a great opportunity to experience Nepalese local lifestyle, experience its authentic hospitality, taste the local food, and in the end, we are supporting and motivating local women-entrepreneurs just by appreciating their local culture and tradition.
