The walk to the Shanti Stupa hill is through farm terraces and sparse villages. The Shanti Stupa is situated on top of the mountainous region in the Pumdi Bhumdi Village, which is a few kilometers away from the Lake side, the main tourist place of the city. This Shanti Stupa was outlined by Monk Nisparanjan Myohoji and established by Monk Litokowo. After a walk of 1.5 hours, we reach atop a hill to find a Buddhist stupa.

I had limited time in Nepal, and Dipak of Trekking Planner made my stay magical. The city tour was with a certified tour guide with perfect English, and his knowledge and explanations about the history regarding the sites we visited was amazing. I left with a much deeper understanding and appreciation of the Nepalese history and culture Dipak also arranged my trip to Pokhara for a few days, and saved me quite a bit of money. The Tourist Bus between Kathmandu and Pokhara was through beautiful scenery, with a couple of stops at tourist restaurants. He arranged a room for me at the Pokhara Eco Resort, with a balcony looking a the nearby Himalayas, for a very reasonable price When I return to Nepal, I will definitely use Trekking Planner for my tours and a trek in the Himalayas!
