Before we leave Nepal and move with the blog to India I´d like to show you two more cities situated in the Kathmandu Valley – Patan and Bhaktapur. On my last day in Pokhara I agreed with Oli that we´ll meet up in Kathmandu and see both cities together, as we both haven´t seen them yet (and I didn´t want to go there alone).
The second most important stupa in Kathmandu for Buddhists is the Swayambunath. Its name – Swayambhu – means “self made” or “self created”.
Losar, right after the Shivaratri was the day which didn´t go as planned. Why? Because people don´t celebrate it the way I thought they would, but at the end of the day it was still interesting 🙂
About posting service in Nepal I have heard many stories. And read probably even more of them.
One of the reasons why I wanted to visit Nepal this time of a year was a Tibetan New Year (Losar) and Shivaratri. And none of those two days I spent as planned.
There´s one thing which you will notice on every corner. Sometimes not even on the corner, but on every step. What´s this? Street dogs.
There are few ways of transportation in Kathmandu. Private, public and your own feet.
