    One of the highlights of my recent trip to Nepal was the Bungmati Khokana Village Tour with Green Valley Nepal Treks. The tour was well-planned, and the experienced and amiable guide gave us valuable insights into the towns' histories and cultures. The tour of the mustard oil refinery was a real highlight, and experiencing the traditional Newari architecture and way of life was something special and intriguing. It was fascinating to observe how the natives lived and worked, and they were warm and hospitable. I would heartily suggest the Bungmati Khokana Village Tour with Green Valley Nepal Treks to anybody visiting Nepal as it was an incredible cultural experience.
