Svayambhunath is elevating - this is just flat amazing. If you like Padmasambhava, do not miss the view from the monastery. You'll see what I mean. Look for it from the air when you are coming into Tribhuvan !

This is probably one of the most pleasant places to visit in Kathmandu. It is away from the frenetic traffic and there is a calming quietness around the stupa despite the myriads of shops selling basically the same things like everywhere else in this city.

A bit of a drive out from central Kathmandu, but well worth a visit. Boudhanath Stupa is one of the largest in Nepal. It is encircled by guest houses, shops, and cafes, which is a little intrusive but the age and construction of these buildings is an interesting contrast. If you’re not much into shops there is little to do other than admire the stupa. The prayer flags, prayer wheels and Buddhist faith observance is the most interesting part. Allow half an hour to walk around a couple of times and enjoy the view. If you’ve got a good taxi out; pay them a little extra to wait for you as it’s a pretty hectic part of town.

The Boudhanath Stupa is very old stupa. It is also called the Khāsa Chaitya, Newari Khāsti, Standard Tibetan Jarung Khashor, located in Kathmandu, Nepal. The village that surrounds the great Boudha (Kāśyapa) stupa is generally known by the name of Bauddha. The stupa's massive mandala makes it one of the largest spherical stupas in Nepal.The stupa of Buddha is stupa of one's own. Stupa of higher intelligence.

Walk with the crowd and not against the crowd, you will get a spiritual feeling and you will be amazed at the activity this stupa commands. Choose to go in the early evening to see the faithful. The shops are still open but remember to bargain. Usually shop keepers are amiable. Climb to the top to get a beautiful view of the market square. Then go upstairs in any of the temples along the periphery of the market center to get a stunning view of the stupa and the activity down below. It will be an evening well spent.

Very impressive. The stonework and the metal work were beautiful. Take in being in such a peaceful place. Watch out for the nefarious monkeys. If you are not paying attention to your food, they will try to steal it from you.
