All reviews prayer wheels rooftop restaurants walk clockwise prayer flags worth a visit spiritual place lots of shops walk around world heritage site must visit place entrance fee kathmandu valley buddhist earthquake monasteries pilgrims dome
Here is your chance to see as many prayer wheels as possible and turn them, including a super large one at one of the shops. There are lots of shops, as the stupa is the donut hole to the donut of stores and cafes.
I found it to be very impressive and unique. We used Rainbow Mountain Treks and I was very pleased with the way they took care of us. Note: if you have the choice to eat some where eat at one of the upstairs restaurants around...More
A unique experience is to go around this amazing Stupa, in Kathmandu. You see crouds of people walking clockwise around this stupa, from traditionally dressed people with their prayer beads to tourists with $$$$ expensive cameras, trying to seize the moments, the culture, the praying...More

Beautiful Stupa. The biggest I have seen.
The buzz of the place is very calming.. feel free to sit in any one of the monasteries around the stupa.. if there is a prayer on, you will enjoy the peace it brings to you.
Excellently rebuilt after the 2015 earthquake. The place has an ethereal quality, (despite us as crowds of trippers ). Not only worth doing a circuit of the stupa, but also visiting the Peace Garden. I think that next time I'm in Kathmandu I'll try to...More

Well, both are interesting places to visit.... we did this during the day, but I suppose if you want to visit in the evening then Boudhanath Stupa would be a goof choice as its surrounded by shops, cafe's, Hotel, & with lighting around it could offer a great ambiance.
Regarding a visit to Swayambunath Stupa, its worth visiting during the day as its a tall climb & a good view of the city. Although you may get hassled by the curio sellers. Don't miss the wishing pond & hope your aim goes strait into the pot for good luck...
Hv a great time in KTM.
