Four days travel to the medieval-age city of Bakhtapur and the highland village of Nagarkot in Nepal. I had a highly interesting visit to Bakhtapur during the height of the Dashain Festival and a contrastingly uneventful one at Nagarkot, where I saw no views of Himalayan mountain peaks due to extremely cloudy weather.
