Oops, I nearly forgot to post about sightseeing in Kathmundu! We went to Swayambhunath a Buddhist temple on the hill, also known as the monkey temple. It was a lovely temple, quite different to the Buddhist temples in Thailand. The views from the top of the hill were stunning.
Then we went on to Bodhnath, on of the worlds largest stupors and a religious centre for Nepal’s Tibetan exiles. Bodhnath had a really good vibe, its an area I would have lingered for a while had I been travelling alone.
