We follow the path of a young Buddhist monk through ancient yet equally modern Katmandu Valley.
Life on the royal squares of PATAN and KATHMANDU with the unique wooden and brick architecture of heir palaces and pagodas, the grand Stupa of BODNATH, take us back to a long-forgotten era.
In PASHUPATINATH by the holy BAGMATI River we become witnesses to a moving cremation ceremony in accordance with ancient Hindu ritual.
We follow our monk the up the precarious stairs, leading to the grand Stupa of Swayambhunath, a holy place for Buddhists and Hindus alike – 2,500 years of living faith.
This stage has already been completed.
