Tibetan monks in maroon robes wander the prayer flag-decked streets whereas pilgrims spin prayer wheels and fill up on butter and tsampa (roasted barley flour). This is one among the few places within the world wherever Tibetan Buddhist culture is accessible and unshackled, and therefore the lanes around the stupa area unit filled with monasteries and workshops producing butter lamps, ceremonial horns, Tibetan drums, monks’ headgear and the other accessories essential for Tibetan Buddhist life. Many of the monasteries around the stupa have opened their doors to foreign students, therefore you’ll see lots of Western Dharma students in maroon robes as you stroll around the backstreets.

The site was jolted severely by the 2015 earthquake, however, the most stupa sustained solely superficial damage.
The entire structure of the stupa is deeply symbolic: the white dome represents the planet, whereas the 13-tiered, tower-like structure at the highest symbolizes the thirteen stages to nirvana.

From the start of the booking process through the tour and post stay in Kathmandu I must say that Tsering was organised and attentive at all times, and very accommodating with payment structure. The guide on the trek Krishna was very patient and worked the nightly accommodation based on our capabilities and we owe in no small measure our success to him.
Before and after the trek in Kathmandu Tsering looked after my sister and myself very well with a guided tour and hospitality meal.
