Great place we did our 3 circumnavigations with 100's of locals the incense smoke can get to you. Loads of shops and eating places. Roof top bars were you can watch the world go by. Make sure you visit the monastery to see the chanting etc

Rebuilt through local funds and labour following the 2015 earthquake this Stupa is both magnificent in size (the largest in Nepal) and simple in it effect as the holiest Tibetan Buddhist temple outside Tibet. Apart from following the flow clockwise, you can also enter the local monastery and loose yourself in the sound of chants.

Beautiful sight to see with a wonderful atmosphere. It is exactly what I had pictured of Nepal. The colourful prayer flags and prayer wheels surrounding the Stupa touch the soul. The Tibetan influence is felt here and it is wonderful to see. Highly recommended.

It's my dream to have my picture taken in this place, its a very interesting place you got to see they way how the locals display their faith ( I circumnavigate the stupa several times just to feel the place.) at the same time the place offers a great view of their architecture with old buildings somewhat still preserved.
