My tour was lovely. It was great to get out in the country. My guide Bishal, was well spoken and very knowledgeable. However, the photo of the temple is misleading. There is no top to the temple, those two roofs fell down in the earthquake, so all you see of the temple is a small insides. There is an hour long line to get in, but the priest and his blessing is really cool. The traffic getting in and out of town is slow.
