Gundu Village
Travel to Nepal
First of all Kathmandu valley  could be a wonder in the world  as from almost  every spot on a  very clear day one could see the crystal Mountain on the north and the valley is surrounded by green hills on all side. Rich with its living monuments and  still enough open paddy fields.
Kathmandu valley formerly had 4 different kingdoms and the  major living resource used to be agro products and at the same time the valley was cut off with the part of the world. Kathmandu was self-sufficient on agro products.
One can see the population of Kathmandu has increased by many hundreds time for the past, until last 20 years farms of Kathmandu was still enough to  produce the vegetable  needed here and the  famous farmers are known as Jyapu.
Gundu is east of Kathmandu and is located behind famous Ganesh Temple which is in the front of Bhaktapur city where you will find the last stop of the only trolley bus operated between Kathmandu and Bhaktapur in the past.
The village Gundu is on the last end of the  Kathmandu valley which is  east of Kathmandu and  is till  un touched by modern Kathmandu.
The village have few scattered houses of different ethnic group most of the people on the northern part are of Tamang community who traditionally practices Buddhist religion and the other houses of Cheetris and Brahmins. They yet live in harmony the life here us still very  peaceful, on  hill three side of the village you will see small hills with forest and the west is open an on clear day you can see Bhaktapur and the back snowy Mountain peaks. The village have several ethnic houses yet and the local people still mostly live from the farming, one of the cash farm is raising cattle specially cows and buffalos for milk. You can see early in the morning farmers comes from the hills brining  milk to  one of the small deposit center where milk is tested and than sent to the city for the sale. It is interesting to see this culture yet today not far from the modern Kathmandu city where you can find department shop where every product in the world is found.
The village has its own water  source and it is very green and  you can see the farm land where different crops are grown we have both the terraced fields and gentle  flat farms where water could be retain to grow rice in the monsoon period.
