This is a Hindu married woman’s day for her man. This day women wear beautiful red saris, They sing and dance a lot but at the same time women observe a fast and pray Lord Shiva for the long, healthy and prosperous life of their husbands and their families. The unmarried women also observe this festival with unabated zeal with the hope that they will get to marry good husbands and live a good long life.
This was a 10 day rafting expedition and it was absolutley fantastic. The whitewater was incredible (just the right amount of big rapids and flat water to relax), the scenery was stunning, and it was a great way to get away from all the other tourists and all the traffic!
I went with a company called GRG's Adventure Kayaking and they couldn't have taken better care of us, in fact I'm already planning a return visit to do the Sun Kosi river!
It is at about 3 km north from Kathmandu. Bodhanath Stupa is huge; it stands right out from the houses around; it is the biggest stupa in the world. This is a place where the Tibetan believer does their daily prayer and it has a really nice energy specially during the pujas in the morning or when is crowded at evening.
Is an ancient religious complex atop a hill known as Monkey temple because macaques live there jumping from one place to another. The Swayambhunath complex consists of a stupa, a variety of shrines and temples, including a Tibetan monastery, a museum and a library. It is less bussy than Bodhanath and has beautiful views of Kathmandu.
