We spent most of the day visiting The Great Stupa and hiking around the area. Very pleasant. The Stupa is remarkable. They do have a cafeteria, even overnight lodging if you book ahead of time

It is always nice to visit. Very quiet and beautiful area. You need to spend a lot of money here if you want to learn more about the spirituality that this place offers.
