You just have to go and walk around a few times to know what it is all about. Don't miss out on the biggest stupa in Nepal!

“Spiritual Journey”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Loved the spiritual influence of just being there. The sights from this Stupa are magnificent and even if not a spiritual person the views alone are worth the visit.

“Cultural Classroom”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

A visit to the Bodnath Stupa area and its surrounding shopping and restaurants is a unique cultural experience. Populated by many Tibetan Buddhists and lined with an array of shops, Boudha offers a friendly and inviting environment. The Stupa area attracts tourists and locals alike, so meeting a variety of people is possible.
Meeting the friendly shop owners, engaging conversations is a wonderful way to learn more about the culture of Nepal.

“Interesting, don't linger”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Went here with my wife to see this as it is the number one attraction, however would not recommend spending a lot of time here unless you are a devout Buddhist. Not much to see and after a while you are getting in the way of those there to pray. We did see some tourists who spent a long time taking photos and were asked politely to move on by their guide. Just common sense but sometimes not so common. Very worth the visit, but can be done in 20 minutes.
