    Explore Little Tibet in Kathmandu, Nepal

    From dawn 'til dusk, hundreds of monks as well as Nepalese and Tibetans of every age walk around a 40m high stupa called Boudha or Bodhnath.

    Prior to your visit to the remarkable holy Buddhism stupa, located about 3km east of the main tourist area Thamel, you need to get past two barriers: first of all, the pronunciation of 'Swayambhunath' and second, the 365 stairs up to the main stupa on top of the hill.
