dead people are not buried here – they are burned in special places, like pashupatinath. that’s where we are going today.

those who are burned and whose ash is strew into the river has a better chance to be reborn.  the oldest son light up the fire by setting fire to a bunch of straw in the mouth of the dead body.

there is a little hill you can walk up and you definitely should! from there you have a stunning view!! we sat down, enjoyed and relaxed for quite a while.

at the other side of the river are little markets where you can buy as good as exact the same things on every booth 😉
