After we have our early breakfast we will wind our way through the back alleys of the old city and head south to Bungamati. Here we will stop for an hour and will visit the Machhendranath temple also traditional Newari architecture. From here, we will descend on rocky single track to Khokana which is a lower village where we will stop to look at the Shekali Mai temple which is a valley’s nature goddess. We will return uphill to Bungamati and then continue south also climbing on jeep track through lush forests to the village of Champi with its sweeping view to the southwest corner of the Kathmandu Valley. A combination of downhill push and uphill carry for 15 minutes will take us to the picturesque village of Chapagaon and the famous VajraVarahi temple is just south of the town. Even though VajraVarahi temple is neglected, old woodcarvings of Krishna and Vishnu are still in good condition.  After our visit to ancient places, we will ride on an exciting jeep track more like a roller coaster ride full of fun, to the village of Baregaon that will lead us back towards Kathmandu along the quiet Godawari road.
