Madhyapur Thimi

Between Patan, Kathmandu, and Bhaktapur, Madhypur Thimi is located at the valley's heart. During the late Malla period, when there were frequent fights between the three kingdoms of the valley, it functioned as a bulwark between Bhaktapur, Patan, and Kathmandu due to its strategic location.In terms of excursions and tourism, Thimi is almost undiscovered; you'll be lucky to meet another traveler there. The road to Thimi is parallel to the Bhaktapur highway, making it accessible by public transportation. Taking a bus back to Thimi or Bhaktapur will require waving one down outside the main gates.
