Buddhist Stupa in Central Kathmandu
The Buddhist influence is everywhere in evidence throughout Kathmandu and in many parts of the countryside. This stupa in central Kathmandu is very colourful and very photogenic. The colourful prayer flags fluttering in the breeze just adds further to this amazing structure.
During our trek in the Everest region I was amazed at some of the places these colourful prayer flags had been placed. Some were high up on the steep faces of the cliffs surrounding the valleys we were walking along. When we climbed high up over ridges, more prayer flags were seen even higher up.
