Indreswor Mahadev Temple in Panauti is the oldest surviving temple in Nepal, believed to be constructed in 1294A.D. Climbing west, we follow a jeep track along the meandering Roshi river. Beyond the town of Madhuban, we enter into a narrow pristine valley ascending 300m on superb trail to reach the summit of Kathmandu Valley's eastern rim known as Lakhuri Bhanjyang. This is probably the oldest route east out of Kathmandu Valley, connecting the ancient cities of the valley with Panauti. What a grunt! But the views of the Himalayas are more than compensate. From the saddle, the descent is on switch-backed jeep track. After an hour and a 500m descent, we come to Sisneri, a quiet valley village. The ethnicity of the people change as we descend from Tamangs, Thakuries and Chhetris to lowland Newari farmers.
