Amazing place, definitely worth seeing. We went there late afternoon, they closed the raised platform around stupa for visitors at 5pm, but the place was the most amazing when it got dark and thousands of butter lamps were lit and the stupa was highlighted in different colours as well. Loved the atmosphere. Entrance fee is 250 rupees, but it's worth... More

We had an amazing time with Mount Face Nepal . Kisan was our guide and he was fabulous. They provided excellent service from pre departure to coordinating our travel within Nepal. Would highly recommend traveling with Mount Face Nepal.

Nice place to learn more about Buddhism in Nepal. I loved the central place where people were singing the traditional prayers. Still a pity that the earthquake has left its marks. Also too bad that you need gas masks in the traffic to get there.

We had lunch on one of many rooftop restaurants that overlook this massive Stupa. So interesting to learn about this Stupa and I loved walking around the bustling square that surround it. A must see!

Shops around here are good for shopping for souvenirs to family and friends .dont miss to visit any roof top restaurant from where you can get a good view as... More
