Another famous Buddhist stupa located inside Kathmandu valley is Swayambhunath. It is a very old and ancient shrine which has always been a major source of mysticism and history for people living near it. We therefore recommend this place to our travelers. But this place is famous for many things. One of the things that attract tourists is the panoramic view of the entire Kathmandu city and the surrounding hills. One can easily see the great blue Himalayan sky and even Mt. Ganesh in a clear cloud free day.
After Kathmandu, there is Pokhara which is also a major touristic hub. Pokhara is also referred to as “the lake city of western Nepal”.
