Boso Rahit might not be fat-free, but it is definitely delicious. Located in Pulchok, the joint is one of the most popular momo places in Kathmandu. Unlike some popular joints, it has veg and chicken options, but nothing will beat its buffalo momo which is its staple. We are sure you will have at least a couple of plates before leaving.

6. Read Parkhal 

Parkhal by Govind Kusum is a recently launched book. The book tells about how social, economic and political changes obstruct the growth of a person. Similarly, the book also talks about social evils, political power and increasing foreign employment. If you want to spend your weekend in Kathmandu leisurely, this can be the best option. 

7. Watch Bachunjel Haskhel

This musical show depicts the story of Laptaney, played by Rupesh Lama, who could not fulfil his dream of marrying. Despite plenty of struggles, he could not make any girl fall for him. The arrangement of the song is different and unique from many other Nepali songs that are releasing in recent times. It has lovely variations. The song has elements of folk songs popular in the eastern part of Nepal. Another leisurely way to spend your weekend in Kathmandu…
