Exciting to go up and scenic at top
Oct 2021 • Family
It's quite exciting as one can use ropeway to go up to the Stupa. Alternatively one can can walk also. At top, it's quite scenic view, lust green forest. Stupa is well maintained.

Enchanting After a Scary Ropeway Ride
Feb 2020 • Friends
Steep Ascent in a single air scary Ropeway was quite an experience. Initially, we were scared but soon started enjoying it. Reaching the Buddha stupa and the surrounding view was really great. The dome has glistening golden statues on all the four sides and there is a beautiful monastery cum museum adjacent to it. Worth the visit and the enthralling experience.

Rajgir Day Trip
Oct 2018 • Couples
Rajgir is a small place approximately 70 km North of Bodhgaya. It will take you about 2 to 3 hours to get there depending upon the traffic conditions and your transport. It's a group of few small hillocks with the most famous Shantideva Stupa and few other tourist attractions nearby. All these are within close proximity of each other. We went to all. Enjoyed a most refreshing bath in the hot water spring too, saw a cave leading to some secret treasure and a jail for a king Bimbisara constructed by his son. There are few others. On the way we stopped over at a place where is the famous mountain that was single handedly curved out by Dashrath Majhi now immortalised by Nawajuddin Siddiqui in the biopic made on him. I guess he used a hammer and chisel and slogged for 22 years to get a pass made through the mountain. Hats off to human tenacity and power of one.

Holy Trip around Patna!
May 2018
Rajgir is around 100 km from Patna and is a Hot Spring. This Hot Spring is a holy place for Hindus and it attracts visitors from across the region. This can be a half day trip if one wants to cover all the points. There are around 5 to 6 points to cover in Rajgir. The Lord Buddha stupa is situated on a hilltop and the journey to it is amazing. One has to take a cable car to visit the stupa on the hilltop. It is to be noted that cable cars are strictly not allowed for kids below 8 years to go to the hilltop. Hence plan your trips accordingly. I visited this place 2nd time after around 20 years. It has changed and improved a lot in terms of facilities but still has a long way to go in terms of hygiene, safety and availability of food.
