Manakamana is a famous and religious place of Nepal. The scenes from cable car is also very good and natural. Prices for local or foreign visitors are reasonable. Do visit once.

The place is absolutely divine. Though people sacrifice animals, others can easily visit. Main temple complex in under renovation.

It's a famous temple in Nepal but unfortunately destroyed by earthquakes in 2015. You can experience the Hindu culture here and try to dress up like a Nepalese for entry the temple. Local people said the god in this temple really can realize your dreams.

Couldn't really see the temple itself, as it was shrouded in scaffolding following earthquake damage. However, the whole Manakamana experience is an assault upon the senses - the crowds, the shops, the drumming, the colour, the scents - fantastic. Be warned, though - you will see many chickens and goats being taken for sacrifice.

Despite laws, there is much sacrificing of animals at the temple, daily. Getting to the top is easy by taking a cable car ride of 2.8km which is covered in... More
