What a great place to be. Stunning, beautiful, magic and spiritual place with a lot of life around it. Love this place. A must to see and experience when travelling Nepal!!! I can recommend staying in a Guest House in Boudha, so you can surround the stupa every day!

This is definitely one of the stops the guidebooks suggest you see while in Kathmandu and we couldn't agree more. This was our favorite touristy stop of the day. We went in the morning and it was so peaceful to just walk the edges of the stupa and climb up onto it to get a closer view.

There's a small entrance fee (1-2 USD), but it's well worth it and we didn't ever feel overwhelmed by would-be guides or vendors. Everyone was very respectful.

Just make sure you walk around the stupa clockwise out of respect!

For me this is the best site in Kathmandu to visit because of the peace and calm brought about by the Tibetan Buddhist influence. I recommend this as an excelent place to eat in one of the many restaurants overlooking the stupa.
One word of warning; there are lots of pigeons and their droppings can be very accurate.
