Kathmandu is the capital and largest city of Nepal, with a population in excess of a million. The city is rapidly growing in popularity as a tourist destination, attracting a wide variety of travelers on all sorts of budgets. Perhaps what draws more people to Kathmandu than anything else is its abundance of cultural and historical landmarks.

The most visited of such landmarks is Boudhanath, one of the holiest Buddhist sites in the city. The stupa at Boudhanath, a huge dome-shaped Buddhist shrine that, if you visit at the right time, offers a completely tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu. Night time visitors might also get the opportunity to experience real Tibetan culture and religion as locals visit the stupa for prostration.
