Going walkabout in the Valley

Kathmandu is a great place to be based*, and there is plenty to occupy a brief sojourn... or two... or three. There are monkeys to be visited and steps to be negotiated at Swayambhunath; far too many photos to be taken in Kathmandu / Patan / Bhaktapur's Durbar Squares (in ascending order of impressive-ness); fragrant clear and holy Bagmati river water to avoid at Pashupatinath; and several miles of prayer flag and thirty-six metres of stupa to admire at Bouddhanath.

* its vicinity to the rest of the valley makes it easy to escape.
