The gigantic Boudhanath stupa is without a doubt one of the biggest attractions you can visit in Kathmandu. If you want to expand this tour a little further, then head north to the adjoining Buddhist district

Peace Park in Kathmandu

Just 100 meters north of Boudhanath, you will find the first attraction of this walk – Peace Park. There is a nice pond and large statues. It is a popular place for local believers

Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling

After a short walk, you can walk to the most monumental building in the district, Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery. Next door is the Rangjung Yeshe Institute, which teaches Tibetan language and Buddhist philosophy. You will meet quite a few western students of all ages here
