“Amazing”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

I've been to Tibet and many Tibetan parts of China, and this was a really relaxing activity, particularly after the overwhelming impact Pashupatinath had on me a short while before. Even in the rain I walked around and around with the pilgrims until I lost count. Lots of decent and bad shops alike littering the lining, but it's all about the sights sound smells and people there. Don't miss it.

“Just have to visit here, it's a must !”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Difficult to find the entrance to the square, so ask the taxi driver to drop you at the entrance. Make sure you walk round "clockwise" !! And after you're finished, end up With coffe or lunch at one of the rooftop restaurants. Perhaps Roadhouse Cafe where we havd an excellent beer and pizza 1

“One of the worlds largest Buddhist stupas”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Also known as little Tibet settled by Tibetan refugees circumambulating with innumerable shops selling Tibetan handicraft , Jewellery , Thankas and carpets.

We loved the atmosphere, going to different Buddhist monasteries, pigeons for kids and monks and tourists! We went to different shops but we were not able to buy anything in the area because of the high prices compared to different shops in Kathmandu - highly touristic area. Of course, shopping could be an option for most of the tourists!

Great fun for the family - lots to do at small fee!

Magical place, not far from city center. Take tempo number 2 and you'll get there in 20 minutes for just 20 rupees.
