Himalaya Trekking / Nepal-Annapurna-Mt.Everest
The Bodnath Temple is with 36 m height one of the most important buddhist holy places in Kathmandu valley. The laying the foundation stone goes back to Licchavi in 5th century after Christus. In the fullmoon nights (Vesakh-festival) thousands of butter lamps are eluminated on the terrasses, which suround the Stupa in the shape of a Mandala. The Bodnath Stupa is located ca 8 km northeast of Kathmandu. There is also the monastery of Cini Lama, the third highest dignitary of the Tibetians. Religious Buddhists mainly suround the Bodnath Temple at daybreak or at twilight clockwise. Thousands of coloured prayer flags chatter in the wind and carry the "Om mani padme hum" in the sky.
