You'll also visit the Swayambunath Stupa, known as the most important Buddhist shrine in all of Nepal.

Things to note

Insider Tips:

  • They say one of the most memorable ways to experience the Swayambunath Stupa is by making it up the long staircase en route to the temple, which cuts through a forested hillside. The steps number to 365, but don't be daunted – you'll have monkeys for company on the way up
