  • Such a marvellous temple... We spend a lot of time preparing to go to the temple... With more than 10-20 thousand people visiting the temple in a day makes it the best destination on the eastern part of Nepal I was real hard to find a proper transportation to go to the base of temple, The walking to temple was lovely... lovely weather sometime raining, something snow, sometime sun, sometime foggy... The temple hold a very ancient history and needs to be protected properly Nd managed after all its our national treasure...
  • The journey to the destination was really great. Snowfall added life to our destination.
