An interesting temple near Pashupatinath
Almost everyone who visits Nepal's Kathmandu will take a trip to the most famous Pashupatinath temple. Only a small part of them will go a few hundred meters further to the top of the hill, where there are a number of small temples headed by the most famous Gorakhnath Mandir, which is also definitely worth seeing.

Pashupatinath Temple is located in the valley of the Bagmati River, so a long staircase awaits us from it. After a while, we continue mostly with the locals, because other tourists turn to only different views of Pashupatinath and few people go to the top of the hill. Even the staircase itself is quite interesting

It is another of the several places in Kathmandu where macaques occur in large numbers, so be sure not to take a snack from your backpack or you will lose it and the monkeys will scratch you.
