Shanti Stupa Reviews
Not a lot to see but it’s free, convenient and provides a great opportunity to climb stairs, which is a safe acclimatization exercise. more »
So peaceful place and the view from the top is superb. Best time to visit is during sunset, there is one small cafe and we spend good 1 hour sipping a warm cup of tea enjoying the beautiful view. more »
The Shanti Stupa is very calm and refreshing. It doesn't need a lot of climbing, making it easy for any age-groups to see it. It is situated in a very picturesque location. If you are a photo freak, you will find amazing backdrop for all your pictures. Just sit on the benches and admire the beauty of the nature. Happy refreshing!
The whole place has peace written all over it... beautifully constructed and well maintained. Instead going there by car one should definitely try to climb through stairs and enjoy beautiful city view in back drop.
