Full description

We'll meet up at Ratna Park and drive to Budhanilkantha, where lies an ancient temple of Vishnu. There, in a pond, lies a five meter long statue of said deity. It’s being taken care of and even its clothes are regularly changed. From there we'll walk to Shivapuri National Park and make our way to the very peak of Shivapuri Mountain where a beautiful view opens up, which is perfect for taking incredible pictures. After that we'll walk back down and make our way through the beech forest to a place where wise Todke Baba finds his refuge. It a simple hut, where we'll have lunch, and if we're lucky we might even meet Baba himself and ask him questions, have conversations and just have a good time. Then, we will continue our hike through the forest back to Kathmandu. Finally, we'll make our way along the city streets to get to Kopan Monastery. It serves home to many monks, lamas, teachers and workers.
