Prepare for a brief excursion through the city after breakfast.

The Pashupatinath shrine will be the first stop. It is centrally placed in Kathmandu. It is a sacred site for Hindu believers, featuring ancient temples, statues, and historical inscriptions. It is very forbidden to take photographs of the main temple. The next stop is Bouddhanath Stupa, which is about a 10-minute ride away.

Buddhist followers revere Boudhanath Stupa as a sacred site. It is the world’s largest stupa. It is beautiful in its own right. The atmosphere around the stupa is so pleasant that it fills you with peace and contentment.
