A modern cable car takes you to Manakamana Temple, a 17th century pagoda-style sanctuary dedicated to one of Parvati's incarnations-- Bhagwati. After an exciting ride up with stunning views of the mountains and green valley, admire the red and black colored and lavishly decorated temple standing 1,302 m (4,270 ft) above sea level. Feel the holy ambiance and enter the small dark chamber displaying ancient ornaments covered in dust and ashes. Many pilgrims come to worship here and often sacrifice animals-- infact there is a cable carriage for animals just for this purpose. Absorb the breathtaking views of the Manaslu, Himalchuli, and Annapurna mountains to the north, and grab some souvenirs and taste local food from the nearby street vendors.

  • After a more or less good road from Kathmandu... And after three hours... One gets to the Manakamana Temple. IMPRESSIVE! ... The rise in the cable car, deserves the 20USD per person... And then, take the crowded streets of jobs (normal in Nepal) until you reach the Summit... Where you discover with AWE, the ruins of which a year ago was a marvel of temple. The great people let us visit the Temple in its entirety
