Without a proper tour, and only viewing it at night, it was a nice site to visit. The shops and restaurants surrounding sure fun to visit as well.

I visited the Stupa several times during my visit to Kathmandu. I even ended up moving to a guest house near the Stupa because I feel so peaceful and calm whether walking around it or sitting with locals for prayers. The Stupa offers a great place for people watching, whether the monks or ethnic groups. It is more than a... More

One of the largest buddhist shrine newly renovated after the devastating earthquake . I would recommend visiting the site during the morning or the evening time when the whole place is full of pilgrims circulating the shrine and murmuring , the scent of the juniper incense fills up the atmosphere .

This is the worlds largest Buddhist temple in the world, it is surrounded by souvenir shops and restaurants. This Stupa is a solid mass and is iIMPPOSSIBLE to go inside. The only people allowed onto the stupa are people to do repairs. There were repairs being done whilst I was there, these were as a result of the latest earthquake,... More

Boudhanath Stupa is a beautiful, big stupa definitely worth to visit if you are in Kathmandu. Around the Stupa there are many souvenir shops, restaurants and even guesthouses. Some of the restaurant rooftops have the direct view of Stupa and it is fantastic. Sounds of chanting mantras and worshiping Tibetan devotees added a remarkable value to my experience there. It...

Apparently the largest Stupa is in Myanmar. We had a guide who was quite informative about the history of the area. Worth a visit. There is a fee to enter but I can't be sure what it was now. There are plenty of souvenir shops and restaurants surrounding it. It is quite photo worthy if I may say so. It... More
