lixinyingOn the way to Pokhara in Kathmandu, you can report a rafting project. I was not expecting too high. Waiting for the boat to walk, the river is choppy, because I am sitting on the edge of a rubber boat, I have to keep balance and try to slide, very exciting, Nepal primary school students on the bridge greeted us warmly. After landing for lunch and then taking the bus to Pokhara. Perfect day.
AnsonThis pure white tower can be seen from the edge of Fewa Lake, standing among the greenery of Queen's Forest. The pagoda is pure and white, with a Buddha statue on each side. It was built by the four countries that built the pagoda: the sitting Buddha in Japan, the standing Buddha in Nepal, the enlightened Buddha of Sri Lanka and the reclining Buddha Nirvana in Thailand. On the hill where the World Peace Pagoda is located, you can clearly see the entire Pokhara scenery. There are no traffic lights on the road, and no road name. In addition to watching the sun and landmarks, you also need an RP. After riding a donkey and climbing up the hills with difficulty, the beauty in front of me reminded me of Li Zongsheng’s song... "Across the hills, although I have turned my head and chattered endlessly, I feel sad... ."
Since Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay claimed the first ascent in 1953, more than 7,600 people have summited Mt. Everest – the highest peak on earth at 29,035 feet – and nearly 300 have died trying. Still considered the pinnacle of human achievement, the risk-averse peak bagger or non-climber can get up close to the summit on a flightseeing tour from Kathmandu.
Some temples located at palpa nepal
Located at baglung calica temple nepal. Such a peaceful place to visit
Kathmandu is called “City of Temples”. They say, this city has more temples than houses. Perhaps it was true some time ago. This city has some of the oldest temple and stupa’s of the country. So, we start with temples and Stupa’s. Moreover, I be mentioning places from Bhaktapur and Patan since they are nearby and are easily reachable.
PASHUPATINATH TEMPLE....Best time to visit Pashupatinath Temple is during Shiva Ratri. It is the time when this place has all the huzz buzz. People generally come and visit the main temple but there is more to it. There is a place at the back called Aryaghat where religious burning takes place. If you walk over the bride their you have upstair to walk which leads to the top of the hill where other small temples are located. The other side of the hill has another famous temple name by “Guheswari Temple”.
SWAYAMBHUNATH.....Swayambhunath is an ancient religious architecture atop a hill. Not only this place has great great architecture to watch but also an ambient environment. You will love the “Om Mani Padme Hum” echoing everywhere here. You can also have a birds eye view of the Kathmandu Valley which from this place.
BOUDHANATH......This Stupa is one of the largest in the world. This Bauddha stupa was built just after the demise of Lord Buddha and is the largest single Chhorten in the world. Many kilograms of gold were used in the decoration of the holy building. The legend of its building begins with one person:
SANGA...The statue is 144 feet (44 m) high and made using copper, zinc, concrete and steel. Kailashnath Mahadev Statue is the world's tallest Shiva statue.
SETO GUMBA...Seto Gumba (White Monastery सेतो गुंबा) also Druk Amitabh Mountain is a Buddhist monastery in Nepal. It is located at Ramkot VDC of Kathmandu District. It is located outside the ring road of the Kathmandu Valley to the North West.
CHANGU NARAYAN TEMPLE...This shrine is dedicated to Lord Visnu and held in especial reverence by theHindu people.
I finally get around to sharing one of my best high altitude trekking and glacier crossing experiences.
This is truly tough and you need to have a tent. You need to do an overnighter. Your progress will be slow as breathing is hard at 5000 - 550 meters. You don’t need to take any water if you go in July/ August as there are tiny water streams everywhere. Now up there nothing talks , nothing, walks, nothing grows. You will truly be alone. Trekking around the lake is extremely tough as you have to cross either one or two glaciers depending on the route you choose. The second glacier which is the last leg of your circle is risky as avalanches will frequently come down from Mr. Tilicho to crash into the lake. As soon as Nepal is open again for tourism I will attempt to climb Mt. Tilicho which looms over the lake like a god-like guardian.

As we all know, English language by itself is not self made; it is more of deriving the words from other language and localize it. So here's an interesting fact about the word "juggernaut", which means non stoppable. Well Jagannath is a name of the Lord in India, who has unlimited powers and he's totally unstoppable; thus derived the word 'juggernaut' from it. This Jagannath temple is quite world famous for its magical power, that people say the Lord makes all your wish come true. And you payback by walking around the Temple some 100 times. Also it depends on how much big your wish is, so be ready to offer the walking as it worth it. There's also another replica of this Temple in the Andhra province, which is exactly the same. Wish you get what you want !! #leaveyourmark #urbanexplorer #indiatravel
