Surprising this is one of the sites which have escaped from the devastation of last major earthquakes in Kathmandu that destroyed major part of Durbar Square in 2016.

It has a spectacular monastery and lots of history and legends, and in winter from October to May there are the most fantastic views of the mighty Himalaya peaks.
