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.
