There's one area of Kathmandu where the rhythm and pace of everyday life is different from the rest.
Major Tibetan outpost outside its borders, it comprises 50 Buddhist gompas (monasteries) and one of the largest stupas in the world.
Every morning from 5-7am and every evening around 5-7pm the area around the holy monument transforms into a spinning clockwise vortex of energy. Thousands of monks, refugees, pilgrims, locals and rare tourists join into powerful praying and chanting circle of life. Inside that mass almost 200 parying wheels are also adding to the charge.



This is the best place to stay in Kathmandu, away from common noise, traffic and markets. Wake up early and witness the energy. Merchants and tourists invade during the day.

Birds of Pray

There must be some kind of conscious parity with pigeons.
They are being fed in exchange for no dropping at the Stupa. Despite the crazy amount of birds I have not noticed any contamination.
