What we say:
Just south of the market a road leads across the main road and on towards the big hill with a stupa on top.
Follow the road until the T-intersection, turn left and walk about 100 metres until a dirt road on the right appears and head up that. At the top is a rather modest stupa overlooking the entire town and large sections of farmland for kilometres around.
This is a great place to get your bearings before setting off on your own self-guided trek into the surrounding villages. That reason aside, it's a spectacular spot to observe the scenery and a stunning place from which to sit and contemplate life as the sun sets on this magnificent river valley in the middle of nowhere.
