Swayambunath, otherwise known as The Monkey Temple is one of my favorite places to visit when I’m staying in Kathmandu. Over the years it’s become a ritual! Most of my visits are early in the morning just before sunrise, which means a 5:30am wake-up before hopping into a taxi for a 10 minute ride.
With the current fuel crisis in the country and the cost of taxis sky-rocketing I decided to walk one afternoon from Thamel, the tourist ghetto of the city, where I almost always stay, to the temple, about a 30-35 minute journey.
Join me on an interesting adventure full of encounters with sacred cows, holy rivers, and of course, the stars of the temple, the monkeys!
I am a broadcaster, photographer, writer and videographer with a passion for travel throughout Asia. I love making connections and engaging with people. I am spiritual and seek adventure wherever I go.
