Overview 

Boudhanath is one of the suburbs of Kathmandu. It houses Boudhanath Stupa, one of the largest stupas in the world. It has great importance for Tibetan Buddhism and Lhasa.

There is a major trade route which starts from Lhasa and goes through Sankhu. Boudhanath lies at the point of Tibetan traders' entry into Kathmandu city. At the stupa, one can see these traders, and mountaineers and sherpas paying obeisance for their successful journey across the Himalayas and a safe return.
