Late afternoon at the Bodhnath Stupa

We bumped into a fellow trekker at the coffeeshop this morning who let us know there was a Buddhist festival at the Bodhnath Stupa until the end of today.  So we dropped by this afternoon for this magical experience.  There were hundreds of Buddhist monks sitting around the stupa chanting mantras.  Here’s a collection of pictures from both of us.
