Join in the Bunga-Dya Jatra festival (Red Machhendranath). If you are in Kathmandu or Patan during 28 April, then you can join in the Bunga-Dya Jatra festival like what I did. This interesting festival is to celebrate the Buddhist deity of rain, and is honoured with a chariot procession through Patan which has a tradition of about 1,200 years !

Directions: At the Durbar Square in Patan, April 28 or 29 every year.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
