My day visit to Pasupatinath turned out to be a best day out in Kathmandu. I would recommend everyone to visit this place once if you are in Kathmandu.

Just a short taxi ride from thamel. Haggle down to 500nr. Or pay a bit extra and gave the taxi wait around. Also just a quick trip from the burning ghats to boudhanath. So do both sites in the one hit.
