Muhan Pokhari, a natural pool, definitely is the best place for those people who don’t want to do a great hike to enjoy nature and water. Since it is not so far from Kathmandu.

It will take only an hour to reach there from Kathmandu. Muhan Pokhari is 20 km away from Kathmandu and is also the nearest reservoir area from Bhaktapur. From here, Nagarkot, Sudal, Nala, Kalamasi, Shanga, and Sankhu of Bhaktapur can be designed as your further destination.

It doesn’t cost money to play with water in a Muhan Pokhari, during summer. Because it gets totally dry during the winter season.

Also, the area has become a Mukan Pokhari from the name of an artificial pond built to supply drinking water to Bhaktapur in the Malla period.


No, it doesn’t. It lies at Changunarayan municipality in the north-east hill station of Bhaktapur.

It is famous for an artificial dam, and a small water fountain where people come to play with water during summer.

You could choose a local bus or hire a private vehicle to reach over there.

You can catch a local bus from Ratna Park or from Bagbazaar if you are staying at Thamel, which directly goes to Bhaktapur. Then you need to take another bus from Kamalbinayak-Nagarkot bus park to reach there which approximately takes 20-25 minutes to reach Muhan pokhari yet you need to walk a little bit to reach the site.

No, you don’t need to pay any entrance fee to enter there.

Yes, there are few shops on-site.

Yes, it is. Even a single woman could travel here alone.

Well, there are a lot of things that you can do like shopping, sightseeing, eating different foods, also photography. But, capturing one corner of the square and having a sunset view would be the most satisfying thing that you would experience.

While being in Bhaktapur, you must mind few things like taking out of your shoes while entering the temple and other religious sites. Likewise, you might not be allowed to click pictures of some specific events or places. You should consider these things.

As we informed you earlier it is all safe for solo traveling which means you can travel without a guide. But we also recommend you to have a certified guide who would help you to understand the authentic Bhaktapur and the stories carved all over the monuments.
