Patan

We decided against staying in Kathmandu as we usually try to stay away from commercial parts of a location if possible. Plus, we found a lovely, old house in Patan on AirBnb and it was all we needed.

Patan is the 3rd largest city after Kathmandu and Pokhara and it is only 5-6 km away from Kathmandu. It is also called as City of Fine Arts and not without a reason. Patan is famous with its’ wood carving, metalworking and other handcrafts. I’m loving the city, its’ courtyards and squares and friendly residents.

Fazla turistik yerlerden uzak durmaya çalıştığımız için Kathmandu’da kalmak istememiştik. Ayrıca AirBnb’de bulduğumuz çok güzel bir oda vardı ve kaçırmak istemedik. Doğru karar vermişiz diyebilirim.

Patan, Nepal’in 3. büyük şehri, Kathmandu’ya 5-6 km uzaklıkta. Şehrin en önemli özelliklerinden birisi el işi, metal sanatı ve tahta oymacılığı gibi alanlarda tanınıyor olması. Aynı zamanda güzel sanatlar şehri diye anılıyor ve boşuna değil.

    1. We loved it – Mc Donalds applied but couldn’t get the licence due to using beef. I told the guy that they aren’t missing much 🙂 Himalayan coffee is really good by the way. Never knew about it. That house is just a nice house with a nice door ! Couldn’t visit Patan Kumari!
