"Monasteries around Kathmandu" Kathmandu area Tip by schlumpf

Kathmandu area, Kathmandu: 27 reviews and 50 photos


On the way to Swayambhunath, a.k.a. the Moneky Temple, you will pass by some amazing monasteries.
The architecrute and the structure of those places is simple beautifull, and here you can observe and discover 100% the real culture.
Indeed, in such places you won’t meet any tourist, you will meet only local people observing their rituals.
Moreover, in such places you will never find any tourist shop, what will be absolutely common in the most famous places, i.e. Monkey Temple, Pashupatinath and Bodhanth.
Here, as said, you will find only local people praying and monks.
This is a very particular experience, that goes by far then visit the common “touristic phenomenon” places.

Directions: Kathamndu Valley direction Moneky temple.
