    The huge monument, on top of a hill, is recent and large movement of visitors, not as intense as in the other. Is nice and the place is clean, for others, enjoy with more peace of mind.

    One of the major attraction of this place, which has the tallest statue of Lord Shiva. This place offers beautiful view of Kathmandu valley if you are around sunset. There is a temple where you can offer your prayer to lord Shiva and Parvati.

    Best spot to hangout near Kathmandu valley. Religiously important place having world's tallest (144 feet) statue of lord Shiva. You can enjoy the beautiful panaromic view of valley and mountain as well.

    A very beatiful and peaceful area. Shiva devotee must visit this place.

    Was much better in the beginning. High commercialization without better management will not help it stand out of other such spots.

Where to stay in Kathmandu

Only a few establishments in Kathmandu suffered severe damage in the 2015 earthquake, which means that you can choose from a wide range of sleeping options. From luxurious hotels to inexpensive but cozy lodges, the city offers a suitable place for every type of budget. The neighborhood of Thamel contains most accommodations favored by foreign visitors, including basic guesthouses, budget hotels, and boutique establishments offering deluxe suites. For some of the least expensive options, look along Durbar Marg, a busy street just a few blocks from Thamel.
