Boudhanath Stupa - Kathmandu

The Boudhanath Stupa is one of the holiest Buddhist sites in Nepal and don't leave without seeing it, but go early, wear a hat and loads of sunscreen because it gets hot very quickly. My hotel hired a driver for me for the day but later I realized that I paid too much. Negotiate with a taxi driver for a ride of your own, which should cost maximum $20/American for the day. You could wander around the complex for hours drinking coffee, eating, or browsing through all the souvenir shops. ____________________________________________________________________________________ Boudhanath Stupa Kathmandu shops around Boudhanath Stupa - Kathmandu ____________________________________________________________________ standing in front of Boudhanath Stupa Kathmandu
