Getting there & away
Buses to Pharping and Dakshinkali pass by the turn-off to Chobar, from where it's a short but steep walk uphill, and also Chobar Gorge, a couple of kilometres later. The nicest way to get to both sites is on foot from Kirtipur.
From the Chobar Gorge you can cross the suspension bridge and follow a trail on the left uphill to a small village junction. A left here will take you the Kathmandu Ring Rd, entering Patan at Jawlakhel. A right turn will take you on a convoluted bike path that eventually links up with the Bungamati road.
