Boudhanath is one of the best site to visit in Kathmandu. Here you can live a tipycal buddhist atmosphere and you can loose into the smell of incence and butter candles and into the sound of mantra. The stupa is the biggest of Nepal and one of the biggest of Asia and it dominates with Buddha's eyes all around. You... More

I was stunned by the blending white of the stupa. That was when it was just repainted. Now also the prayer flags are back in space and the... More

During the time of our visit, we chanced upon a ceremony cum visit by a guru, which makes it even more interesting to witness the religious rites. Since this place is like... More

The work is nearly finished after the earthquake... people are encouraged to paint some whitewash on the stupa. The surrounding shops are vibrant and colourful and many good eating places upstairs where you get a grea view of the stupa and the hundreds of people
