This iconic stupa on a hill is deeply connected to the history of the Kathmandu Valley. From its top, Buddha’s compassionate eyes watch over the city, bringing a feeling of peace. This place is important to both Hindus and Buddhists, and the breathtaking views from the hilltop are truly remarkable.

Your journey in Kathmandu wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the revered Pashupatinath Temple. This ancient Hindu temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, stands as a significant sanctuary. The name “Pashupatinath” translates to “protector of all living beings.” Nearby is the Arya Ghat, a Hindu cremation site by the sacred Bagmati River, believed to offer a direct passage to paradise for those cremated here, according to Hindu beliefs. As part of the comprehensive Kathmandu Valley Tour, you’ll have the unique chance to do a kora (circumambulation) around the Boudhanath Stupa. This magnificent Buddhist stupa is a testament to Nepal’s spiritual heritage and holds a special place in the hearts of both locals and visitors.
