I visited the Shanti Stupa in time for sunset, but found it too overcast to enjoy a sunset view. However, the views of the surrounding area, all listed with signs, did not disappoint. 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.
